5 famous people who declared bankruptcy

If you are like many people in Louisiana, you have severe financial problems. You may have lost your job, or your salary may be far less than what it once was. In the meantime, you may have accumulated substantial debt that you now find you cannot pay. You may be trying to make mortgage payments, car payments, credit card payments, payday loan payments and a variety of other payments all at the same time. Your money simply will not stretch that far, so you may be thinking about filing bankruptcy as a last resort.

Recognizing illegal debt collection tactics

If you are like many other Americans, and you find yourself struggling to make ends meet and pay bills on time, you may find yourself on the receiving end of some unwanted attention from debt collectors. If you have ever received calls and communications from debt collectors, you probably have an idea of just how aggressive some of these people can be, but you do not have to suffer through harassing or threatening behavior.

It is not uncommon for women to suffer financially after divorce

It is stressful and emotionally draining to go through a divorce. It is often financially devastating as well, particularly for women. Like many divorced women in Louisiana, you may have been quite comfortable during your marriage only to find yourself in dire financial straits once you were newly single, regardless of receiving alimony or child support.

Understanding the bankruptcy means test

If you are considering filing for bankruptcy and have begun researching the process involved in doing so, you may have come across the term “means test,” and you may be wondering what it is and what it entails. Essentially, the bankruptcy means test determines whether you may file for debt forgiveness through a Chapter 7 bankruptcy or whether you must do so through a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, which involves restructuring existing debts.
