When Bad Things Happen to Good People ...

Bankruptcy May Be Your Option

November 2015 Archives

Financial challenges can hurt you in unexpected ways

If you are like most people, you probably associate financial challenges and delinquent debt repayment with foreclosure, repossession and harassing telephone calls from debt collection agencies. While this might be partially true, it does not tell the complete story about the impact bad debt can have on you.

Who is eligible to file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy?

In an earlier post, we discussed the advantages of filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Chapter 13 bankruptcy, which is also known as reorganization bankruptcy, can help you save your home from foreclosure, create new payment plans for certain debts, and provide a buffer between you and your creditors. Oklahoma residents who wish to file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy must meet specific requirements.

Bad collection practices occur despite consumer protection laws

You have probably heard of them before: abusive debt collectors who use unsavory and illegal tactics to try to intimidate and coerce people into paying sums of money they claim that they owe. Myriads of telephone calls, sometimes at odd hours; threatening, abusive and profanity-laden language during such calls; pretending to be representatives of government agencies; contacting people at their place of employment, or contacting co-workers and employers; and continuing to call even when properly directed to desist.

Creditor harassment may accompany financial challenges

When financial challenges make it difficult to meet your debt obligations, creditor harassment in the form of threatening letters and annoying telephone calls soon become a part of your daily life. Technology has provided debt collectors with a means to increase the pressure on you through automated calling systems in a practice commonly referred to as “robocalling.”
