Bankruptcy: What is the Means Test--And What if I Don't Pass?

Bankruptcy What is the Means Test.jpgFiling for bankruptcy is a major step, and probably not something you ever wanted to do. You may have been in a major accident, or you or a family member may have experienced an extended illness that resulted in insurmountable medical bills. Budgets may have been cut at work, or you may have found yourself out of a job altogether. Often, there are other accompanying factors too, like divorce, overuse of credit card due to lack of income, and more.

The Hail Mary: Filing for Bankruptcy to Save Your Home

The Hail Mary Filing for Bankruptcy to Save Your Home.jpgIf you are in a serious financial crisis, it may seem like every part of your life has been affected in a negative way. Your options-as well as your future-may suddenly seem terribly constricted. You may feel very alone, and as if you can't talk to anyone about these problems, sometimes even including your own family. If you reach out for help though, you may be quite amazed at the positive results-and tremendous relief-you can achieve.

Unable to Pay the Mortgage: What Happens if I just Walk Away?

unable to pay the.jpgThe threat of foreclosure does not happen overnight. For most homeowners in distress, payments have been late for at least several months-and possibly more. A loss of income is usually the cause, due to a life event that was almost certainly unexpected and even catastrophic in nature. Medical bills and illness may have completely turned your life upside down, and may have been coupled with the inability to work. With other outstanding debts like credit cards, student loans, and more, suddenly it may be impossible to make ends meet-and especially if other major issues arise such as divorce or unemployment.

Our bankruptcy attorneys will help you escape debt and
face the future with optimism.
