How should I prioritize my debts?

There are many types of debts and payments in modern American households, from credit card debts and student loan debts to car loans and mortgages. Those who are juggling many of these different types have likely found themselves wondering if there is a specific strategy regarding which payments should be focused on first. The good news is that there is. Depending on what kinds of debts you have, you may want to funnel your funds toward one debt or payment over another.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy can discharge your debts

Many people do not realize that there are several types of bankruptcy depending on the circumstances of the person filing. When most people think of bankruptcy, they imagine courts seizing all of their assets in order to escape their debts, leaving them without a home or a car and no money to their names. This type of bankruptcy is most similar to a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing, but it should be noted that your circumstances play a large part in how your bankruptcy filing plays out.

American credit card debt could reach unsustainable levels

By all measures and accounts, our country's economy is seeing some much needed improvement. However, even though the economy is on the upswing, there are still many Americans who are struggling with debt. Much of the buzz around our country's debt focuses on the ever-rising student loan debts, but thanks to CardHub, some light is being shed on another significant form of debt: credit card debt.

Bankruptcy fraud is a serious crime

Bankruptcy is a very serious legal matter, and while it can offer vital debt relief and financial assistance to those who need it, it can also cause serious harm to those who seek to abuse it. It is not uncommon for people to attempt to use bankruptcy in unintended ways in order to save themselves some money. Whether you are hiding assets in the hopes of discharging debts while keeping some money or purposefully causing credit holders to fail so that you don't have to pay up, know that the law could come after you.

The benefits of Chapter 13 bankruptcy

Just because you earn a reliable, substantial income doesn't mean that you cannot benefit from bankruptcy. Many people feel that bankruptcy is only an option for people who are unemployed or who have amassed an outrageous amount of debt. Neither of these assumptions are true. The benefits of bankruptcy extend to those who have steady employment, and also to those who are suffering from debts that they are struggling to pay.
