According to Bankrate.com, it will take the average credit card holder in New Hampshire more than ten years to pay off the balance. The average credit card balance in New Hampshire is more than 20% higher than the national average. If you’re one of the many New Hampshire residents whose credit card debt is out of control, there may be a solution. Each year, Americans discharge about $20 billion in credit card debt through Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases. For those who don’t qualify for Chapter 7, a Chapter 13 repayment plan can transform a constant scramble into a manageable and predictable monthly payment. Don’t keep struggling on your own. Get the information you need today.Read more →
Multiple consumer protection statutes protect New Hampshire residents. When it comes to debt collection issues, two of the most important are the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and the New Hampshire Unfair, Deceptive or Unreasonable Collection Practices Act. The two laws are similar in that they protect consumers from dishonest or abusive debt collection practices. One significant difference is that while the federal FDCPA applies only to third party debt collectors such as collection agencies, the New Hampshire Act also limits the actions of creditors collecting on their own accounts. That means New Hampshire residents have a layer of protection that many Americans don’t. If you’ve been harassed, threatened or otherwise abused by debt collectors, take the time to learn more about your rights today. You may be surprised by your options.Read more →
Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows many New Hampshire residents who are overwhelmed by unsecured debt to start fresh. Those who qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy are often able to eliminate unsecured debt such as credit card debt, medical bills and unsecured loans. With the legal obligation to pay those debts wiped out and creditors prohibited from taking any further collection action, many people like you are able to start anew and build better financial futures. You may even be able to file bankruptcy online. Why not find out today?Read more →
Chapter 13 bankruptcy may provide relief for New Hampshire residents who don’t qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, or for whom Chapter 7 isn’t the right answer. For example, a Chapter 13 repayment plan may be the answer for someone whose income is too high to qualify for Chapter 7, or someone who has property that wouldn’t be protected by the bankruptcy exemptions. A Chapter 13 repayment plan lasts for three to five years, and protects the debtor from most collection actions and some fees and interest during the repayment period. In some cases, some remaining unsecured debt is discharged after all scheduled plan payments have been submitted.Read more →
Many New Hampshire residents have questions about bankruptcy and foreclosure. While the specific options in your case will depend on a variety of factors, the short answer is this: in some cases, Chapter 13 bankruptcy can stop foreclosure. In order to assess whether Chapter 13 bankruptcy could be the right answer for you, our bankruptcy attorney will need to learn more about your income, the amount of debt on your house, the value of your home and more. In other cases, a Chapter 7 bankruptcy case allows the homeowner to surrender the house and walk away with no remaining debt, regardless of the balance owed and current value of the house.Read more →
Medical debt can be overwhelming to the strongest and healthiest among us, and many people struggling to pay medical bills don’t fall into that category. The problem is more widespread than you might thing: about 43 million Americans have past-due medical debt on their credit reports. And, many are never able to catch up on that debt. Medical debt contributes to nearly half of all personal bankruptcy cases filed in the United States. Fortunately, bankruptcy provides a safety hatch for many New Hampshire residents in dire straits, just as Congress intended. Often medical bills can be eliminated entirely in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy case. Schedule your free consultation today to find out whether bankruptcy could be the solution you’ve been looking for.Read more →
New Hampshire employs an unusual system of wage garnishment. Under the state law, a judgment creditor may obtain an order of garnishment for any amount in excess of 50 times the minimum wage per week. Of course, the creditor is still limited by the federal statute preventing garnishment of more than 25% of disposable income for most debts. However, New Hampshire law doesn’t allow for continuing garnishment orders. Because only wages accrued but not paid at the time of the order can be withheld, a creditor may in practical effect only withhold wages from one pay period per order. In most cases, a bankruptcy filing will prevent the creditor from seeking additional orders while the case is in progress, and may even prevent withholding under the existing order. To learn more, schedule a free consultation today.Read more →
