The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) governs debt collector activity in Mississippi and throughout the United States. While collection agency representatives want you to believe that you’re powerless, the truth is that the law protects you from many specific types of abusive behavior. For example, debt collectors are barred from lying about the status of the debt, threatening arrest and other actions they’re not able to take or harassing your friends and family. If debt collectors aren’t following the rules, you can fight back. Learn how today.Read more →
Mississippi residents who are weighed down by unsecured debt may find the relief they need in Chapter 7 bankruptcy. For those who qualify, Chapter 7 may eliminate most unsecured debt, such as medical bills, credit card debt, unsecured loans, old utility bills and even some older tax debt. In most cases, Chapter 7 bankruptcy stops wage garnishment and other collection actions immediately. If you’re ready to take the first step toward reclaiming financial freedom, schedule a free consultation today to find out whether Chapter 7 might be the right answer for you.Read more →
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is less common than Chapter 7 bankruptcy, but provides a solution for Mississippi residents who aren’t eligible for Chapter 7, or who have property they want to protect. A Chapter 13 repayment plan spreads out payment of past-due balances across three to five years, providing the breathing room many people need to get caught up and stay on track. In some cases, a Chapter 13 plan may even stop foreclosure. Schedule a free consultation today to find out whether Chapter 13 is the right solution for you. You may even be able to file bankruptcy online.Read more →
If you’re in danger of losing your home, you may be wondering whether bankruptcy can stop foreclosure. For many Mississippi residents, Chapter 13 bankruptcy can stop foreclosure by giving the homeowner a chance to catch up past-due payments in a three to five year Chapter 13 repayment plan. In most cases, an automatic stay takes effect as soon as a bankruptcy case is filed, so Chapter 13 bankruptcy may offer a solution even if a foreclosure action is already underway. If you’re facing foreclosure in Mississippi, schedule a free consultation today to find out whether we can help you save your home.Read more →
Medical debt is a growing problem in the United States. About half of all outstanding debt is medical. If you’re one of the many Americans who is struggling with medical debt that seems insurmountable, take the time to learn more about your options. Many Mississippi residents are able to discharge medical debt in Chapter 7 bankruptcy. When a debt has been discharged, you are no longer legally obligated to pay it, and a discharge order prohibits any further collection action on that debt. Don’t despair! Learn more about your options today.Read more →
In Mississippi, up to 25% of disposable income can be garnished, though that amount will be reduced if necessary to ensure that you still take home at least 30 times the minimum wage. If your wages are being garnished or you’ve received notice that your wages will be garnished and you can’t afford the reduction in income, the time is right to learn more about bankruptcy. In most cases, the automatic stay in bankruptcy stops wage garnishment immediately. Schedule your free consultation now, before you lose any more income.Read more →
