How filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy stops harassing creditors

Bankruptcy is often vilified as the final nail in a person's financial coffin rather than the breath of fresh air that it truly is. By the time a person in Florida files for bankruptcy, he or she are usually behind on one more debts and is dealing with other serious issues, such as harassing creditors or even foreclosure. One of the most pleasant surprises people get from filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the automatic stay that stops many of these issues in their tracks.

When insurance fails, debt relief is often necessary

Supporting a Florida family often requires more than a single income, but few need five incomes just to survive. That is the sad reality for one out-of-state family as they struggle to repay thousands of dollars in medical debt. For families in situations like this, personal bankruptcy might be a more appropriate option for debt relief.

As a married person, deciding to file for bankruptcy is a move that affects both you and your spouse.

Suffering financially is often categorized as just another feature of being an adult. While virtually no one wants to have to stretch their money from paycheck to paycheck, adults in Florida are often fed the message that their struggle is not uncommon, and therefore they are doing all right.

According to experts, the outlook is not pretty for student loan borrowers.

Are federal programs failing to provide promised debt relief?

The student loan crisis does not appear to be going anywhere anytime soon, and that is perhaps because of the very few options that borrowers have for dealing with this type of debt.

The Public Service Loan Forgiveness program has only helped 96 people in its 11 years of existence. 

Can Chapter 7 bankruptcy help student loan woes?
