The pros and cons of debt consolidation

The process of getting into debt can become a vicious cycle. You may lose track of all of the debts you have incurred, and therefore, you will probably feel out of control and powerless to improve your situation. While many in this position consider filing for bankruptcy, debt consolidation can be a good strategy depending on the situation.

Becoming debt-free starts with simple steps

Whenever we are presented with seemingly overwhelming challenges in life, we can be reluctant to take action because the problems seem impossibly huge. We can have a tendency to bury our heads in the sand in these situations and instead of taking action to solve the issue, we might simply ignore it or pretend that it does not exist, leading to the problem becoming much worse.

What is the purpose of the bankruptcy means test?

Most individual bankruptcy filers will have an initial goal of filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. This is because this chapter makes it possible for a significant number of debts to be written off, and it does not require committing to a lengthy repayment plan. In this way, Chapter 7 bankruptcy offers debtors with the opportunity to gain a fresh financial start.

How bankruptcy affects child support and alimony

If you are considering going through bankruptcy after a divorce or separation, you will need to consider the expenses that you are subject to as a result of that divorce or separation. For example, you may feel that you are struggling financially as a result of child support and alimony obligations, and you may wonder if you will become exempt to these obligations after filing for bankruptcy.
