Many pro and former pro athletes facing financial challenges

Wayne County residents dealing with financial challenges in our struggling economy could perhaps be forgiven for the occasional daydreams of fame and fortune. If only one had the six, seven or eight-figure salary of a professional athlete, it would seem, bankruptcy would simply never be in the picture.

Number one reason for bankruptcy: medical debt

There is all too often a stigma associated with financial challenges. Wayne County residents are likely familiar with the social pressure to keep up appearances, to hide their struggles away from friends, family and coworkers. But study after study show that more Americans are in need of a fresh start today, and maybe not for the reason people typically think.

What can I do to stop creditor harassment?

It can feel like a helpless situation. You're struggling with debt, which is hard enough as it is, trying to make payments while providing for yourself and your family. But then you get constant phone calls at all hours, official-looking letters in the mail, maybe even your friends and family in Wayne County have been contacted by your creditors looking to collect. Some of these communications may have left you feeling threatened in some way.

Overcoming legal challenges in a personal bankruptcy case

Filing for bankruptcy is an important decision for many Wayne County residents struggling with debt. It can help provide the fresh financial start that so many need. It's not even mandatory to hire an attorney to file, although particularly when personal bankruptcy cases run into legal challenges, a legal professional can often provide the advice and guidance necessary to see the case through to debt discharge.

What should I expect during the Chapter 13 repayment period?

After our last few blog posts about Chapter 13 bankruptcy, we realize that some Wayne County readers may still have a few basic questions left unanswered. You know what Chapter 13 offers and you know about how your debts will be grouped and prioritized. But do you really know what to expect the first morning you wake up with your new repayment plan in effect? After all, this is your life we're talking about, and you deserve to have a clear picture of what the next few years will be like.
