This might not work for everyone

Sometimes, you come across a "feel good" story about debt, where someone manages to come out of a large debt almost unscathed and without filing bankruptcy. The unstated premise is often "If they can do it, so can you." A recent Forbes article details such a case of how four sisters who where all in debt banded together and in two years managed to eliminate all of their existing debts.

Discharge a student loan in bankruptcy? It is possible

For those suffering from more debt than they can repay, bankruptcy can be a lifeline to a new and better future. Instead of struggling for  years, hoping to avoid further setbacks like a job lost that would force your debt load even higher and make the prospect of becoming debt free even less likely, with some bankruptcy filings, you could be debt free within six months.

An important point when looking at a bankruptcy

The prospect of filing a bankruptcy is often seen from an emotional perspective. We often speak of the feelings of many of our Wisconsin clients of "being overwhelmed by debt" and the stress that can permeate every aspect of their lives. The debt collectors never stop, and the barrage of demand letters and phone calls can make you feel as if you are being squeezed on all sides.

What you need to know before you file for bankruptcy

The title of the source document for this post is not entirely accurate. While some of the issues discussed by the writer might not be told to you when you file for bankruptcy, in reality, most bankruptcy attorneys are going to tell you these things.

A bankruptcy can lay the foundation for success

For many, the prospect of filing a bankruptcy is filled with trepidation. They worry that it is a sign of irresponsibility or they will be embarrassed to admit to their friends they were forced to file. They may think is means they have failed. In reality, many people in Wisconsin and across the U.S. file for bankruptcy every year, and very few are "failures."

The emotion of fear

While the sales side of the credit industry likes to emphasize the freedom and joy of using their product, with vacations, new cars, new homes and anything else that creates an emotional state of euphoria that induces people to buy, buy, buy.

Who in Wisconsin can file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy?

Facing immense debt can leave anyone feeling frustrated and unsure of their financial future. This is true whether you live here in Milwaukee or elsewhere in Wisconsin. There are options though to escape the burden of debt. A person simply needs to know what these options are and who to turn to for help.

Can a lender repossess my car if I file for Chapter 7?

Filing for bankruptcy can be a scary process for most people because it's not something you do on an everyday basis. A majority of people are completely unaware of how the process works let alone the specific laws that will apply to their unique situation. In nearly all cases in which a skilled attorney has not been obtained, individuals oftentimes are left feeling frustrated and asking a lot of questions.

Student loan debt weighing you down?

These days, it seems like most Americans are strapped down with debt of some sort, though some obviously struggle more than others. Common debts include medical bills, credit cards, car payments, and mortgages. One of the fastest growing forms of debt, though, is student loan debt, which particularly affects young Americans.
