How bankruptcy can help you with medical bills

Even with the best insurance, medical bills can become a crippling weight for many families. If you find you cannot handle your bills for your hospital or doctor visit, it may be time to consider bankruptcy. There are two main options that will handle your medical expenses differently, depending on your situation.

Bankruptcy options for businesses

It's no secret that small businesses often fail. No matter how great of an idea you had, if the community simply is not interested, it can become very difficult to keep the doors open. The end of a business does not have to be the end of you, however. There are options to get a fresh start. Businesses have four different bankruptcy options to settle their debts and move on.

Chapter 7 vs. Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

When individuals have unexpected life changes, like sudden unemployment or medical expenses, debt can become a crushing weight. Unpaid bills pile up, and all the sudden you wonder how you are going to feed your family this week. No matter your situation, declaring bankruptcy can help you stand on your own two feet again. There are a couple main types of bankruptcy: Chapter 7 and Chapter 13.

Time-barred debts: how collectors violate the law

In an earlier post, we discussed how the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act protects you from creditor harassment. Essentially, the FDCPA prohibits debt collectors from engaging in harassing, deceptive, or unfair practices in order to collect from you. The FDCPA also prohibits debt collectors from trying to collect on time-barred debts.

Can I save my business through bankruptcy?

Starting, building and running a business is a continuous act of courage. It takes courage to overcome self-doubt or the doubts of others about your idea. It takes courage to put your money on the line, or possibly even your property as collateral to secure start-up funding. It takes courage to keep going even if the profits do not start rolling in right away. It takes courage to keep from second-guessing the wisdom of your decision to become an entrepreneur.
