Can I Eliminate Gambling Debt in Bankruptcy?

If you have incurred a substantial amount of gambling debt, you may be wondering if filing for bankruptcy protection is a good solution to your problem. With casinos and online gambling websites, there are thousands of people facing a gambling addiction. They continue to go further into debt because they hold out the hope that they will eventually hit it big. Most gamblers fail to seek help until they are completely overwhelmed by their debt.

How to Identify Devious Debt Collectors

When you fall behind on your credit cards, medical bills and other loan payments, it doesn't take long before the debt collectors start calling. When you are dealing with debt collection agents, it is imperative that you understand your rights and how to identify illegal behavior. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is a collection of laws that were passed to protect consumers from being abused or deceived by collectors.

Understanding New Jersey Foreclosures

If you are severely delinquent on your mortgage loan payments and you believe your lender will soon be taking action, it is important to understand how foreclosure works in New Jersey. Foreclosure is the legal process where the lender obtains a court order allowing it to sell your house after you default on your mortgage loan. During the foreclosure process, you will have several options to save your home. Thus, even if the foreclosure action has already begun it doesn't mean you should give up hope.
