If you’re stressed by credit card debt in Nevada, you’re not alone. On average, Nevada residents carry some of the largest credit card balances in the country. It’s easy to get caught in a cycle of making minimum payments or paying down balances only to find yourself relying on credit again as you fall short the following month. If you’re ready to put an end to that cycle, take the time to learn more about personal bankruptcy. Americans discharge billions of dollars in credit card debt each year, giving them the opportunity to start fresh and rebuild.Read more →
Some debt collectors want you to believe that if you have past-due credit card bills, are behind on your automobile loan or your mortgage is delinquent, you are entirely at their mercy. However, being in debt doesn’t mean you have no rights. In fact, certain laws, including the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) exist specifically to protect people from dishonest or abusive debt collection practices. If you’re being harassed by collection agencies or debt buyers, learn more about your rights today. You don’t have to tolerate abuse.Read more →
Chapter 7 bankruptcy law was written to help people who are stuck in an ongoing struggle with unsecured debt, such as credit card bills, unsecured loans, medical bills, past-due utilities and rent and even some old tax debt. It’s not good for you, your family or the economy when you’re trapped by debt and unable to move forward. Chapter 7 offers many Nevada residents a way to break that cycle by eliminating unsecured debt. If that sounds like the kind of relief you need, schedule a free consultation today.Read more →
Though Chapter 7 is what most people think of when they hear “personal bankruptcy,” Chapter 13 offers a unique solution for some Nevada residents. Some people won’t qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy because their income is too high, but still need time to catch up on past-due bills. Others choose Chapter 13 bankruptcy because they have significant assets they’d like to protect, or because they are trying to avoid the loss of property that serves as security for a debt. If you have regular income but have fallen behind on your bills and can’t catch up fast enough to satisfy your creditors, find out whether Chapter 13 bankruptcy might offer the protection you need.Read more →
If you’re facing foreclosure in Nevada, bankruptcy may provide the solution. In some cases, Chapter 13 bankruptcy can prevent foreclosure by allowing additional time to catch up past-due balances in a Chapter 13 repayment plan. For those who don’t have adequate income to save their homes through Chapter 13 bankruptcy or who have decided that it makes better financial sense to let the house go, Chapter 7 bankruptcy can often eliminate responsibility for any deficiency balance remaining after surrender or a foreclosure sale.Read more →
Medical debt has impacted tens of millions of Americans. Even those with medical insurance coverage are often unable to weather a serious illness or injury, leaving 43 million people with past-due medical bills on their credit reports. Fortunately, U.S. law provides a remedy for people who are overwhelmed by medical debt: Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Since medical debt is generally unsecured, many Nevada residents are able to completely eliminate their past-due medical bills in bankruptcy. If you feel like you’ll never get out from under medical bills, schedule a free consultation to find out whether we can help.Read more →
In the state of Nevada, up to 25% of take-home pay can be withheld pursuant to a wage garnishment order, so long as you still take home at least 50 times the minimum wage. If wage garnishment is making it difficult for you to make ends meet or you’ve been threatened with wage garnishment and know that you can’t afford to lose a significant percentage of your income, schedule a free consultation today. In many cases, either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy can stop wage garnishment immediately.Read more →
