Issues with overspending and credit card debt may go hand in hand

There are a multitude of circumstances in which going into debt may be unavoidable, or even necessary. However, sometimes the monetary struggles individuals in Ohio experience could simply be the product of overspending. Those who wish to stave off debt may find it helpful to understand the most common scenarios in which financial challenges arise and the challenges such struggles can bring about.

When it comes to issues with overspending, many experts contribute a significant portion of similar concerns to the frequent use of credit cards. Studies indicate that many Americans have fallen victim to the luxuries of using similar accounts to fund purchases they would otherwise be unable to afford. Placing purchases that might not always be necessary on an account with interest rates ranging anywhere from 10% to 30% might not always be the healthiest financial decision.

Recent studies indicated that more than 80% of outstanding balances on credit accounts exist on accounts that carry the balances for months. In addition, nearly 70% of these balances continue to rack up interest for more than a year. As the rate at which individuals fall into debt far exceeds the rate at which wages grow, similar concerns may leave many seeking a path for debt relief.

Individuals who struggle under the weight of high levels of debt may wish to know more about their available options for relief, but choosing a path can be an intimidating endeavor. Those who wish to gain insight on each available outlet for relief could benefit from consulting with a bankruptcy attorney for guidance in making informed choices. An attorney in Ohio can examine a client's financial situation and assist in developing a strategy to reduce or eliminate debts through the necessary outlets.
