Bankruptcy: When home remedies for debt relief prove unfruitful

When facing extended periods of financial strain, there may be a variety of tactics a person in Ohio or elsewhere can deploy to lessen the burden. In some cases, these strategies could help alleviate a significant amount of one's monetary load. However, should one's efforts to cut down on expenses merely act as a temporary fix to a growing issue, a more long-term solution such as bankruptcy could prove to be just the tool to help achieve a healthier financial future.

Average household debt rises for 20th consecutive quarter

A surging economy may have a way of leaving individuals in Ohio and across the nation less hesitant to take on additional financial obligations. While having confidence that one will be able to afford payments on accounts can be an encouraging feeling, there is always a risk that circumstances could change. With reports indicating that debt levels have continued to increase for 20 consecutive quarters, it could take little more than a minor change in circumstance to leave many families facing financial hardship.

Is bankruptcy a good way to tackle medical bills?

Unfortunately, it's common for people in Ohio to deal with massive medical bills that feel overwhelming and impossible to pay. Having these debts hang over you can feel like a huge burden. It can lead to feelings of constant anxiety and even depression. However, some solutions are available to debtors from all walks of life. Filing for bankruptcy can, in many cases, be a great choice when it comes to wiping the slate clean regarding medical bills.

Timing as an issue in debt collection attempts

Many individuals in Ohio and elsewhere may worry that their outstanding financial obligations will continue to haunt them throughout life. While as time passes, a person's debts might not disappear entirely, there may be restraints on the type of action creditors can take to seek payments on debts. However, should a debt collection agency convince a person to make any form of payment on an old debt, creditors may argue that the statute of limitations no longer applies.
