Bankruptcy can help counter family related financial problems

Texans are known for their love of, and loyalty to family. If you are fortunate, your young loved ones will grow up to be healthy, happy human beings who are able to fend for themselves as they advance into adulthood. Unfortunately, as some children grow, they have difficulty adapting to the real world and may act out or even engage in criminal activities. This difficult situation can be compounded all the more if the child has a substance abuse issue.

Significant emotional and financial strain can be brought to bear on the family members of a child who is habitually in trouble with the law. If the monetary damage done by the child is severe enough, then personal bankruptcy may become the best option to allay the created hardships.

In Belle, West Virginia, a woman has found herself in a terrible financial predicament allegedly due to the unlawful acts of her 19-year-old grandson. According to the woman, in order to feed his drug addiction, the grandson has run her credit card debt to nearly $50,000. In addition, she alleges that he has stolen and pawned some of her personal items such as televisions and computers.

As a result of these serious breaches of familial trust, the woman is now in dire financial straits. She is trying to get some of the debt taken off the card. Still, she says she feels she is in a never-ending nightmare of credit problems.

As for the grandson, the woman says he is currently residing in jail, having been arrested on fraud charges that she filed against him. She loves her grandson, she states, but can no longer be victimized by his addictions.

If you have been financially devastated by a problem family member, you may find yourself in need of a fresh start. A Chapter 13 bankruptcy can offer the benefit of helping you effectively renegotiate debts with an eye on moving forward.

An attorney in Texas, who is familiar with the strains caused by financial distress, may be able to look at your situation and guide you through the process of establishing manageable payments on your debts.
