Clearing the Deck of Legal Problems

When a person feels like they are on a sinking ship they often feel like they need to clear the deck of legal problems. That feeling is understandable and may be workable. Each individual’s situation may be different so it takes a careful review of the facts to know what is best to be done. If a person lost his or her employment position because of whisteblowing, sexual harassment, discrimination or wrongful termination there may be relief through getting just compensation. This may require starting a lawsuit that may even turn into complex litigation. A person who has been injured through no fault of his or her own by someone else’s illegal act may also have recourse to financial relief. Whether that relief is enough to clear the deck of money problems depends on a person’s particular situation. For those who can not get help through negotiation or litigation another option may be relief through a bankruptcy. A chapter 7 bankruptcy can provide relief for an eligible debtor to clear certain debts and financial obligations that are dischargeable. Some types of debt that are not dischargeable are domestic support obligations, most taxes, student loans except in cases where hardship can be established, debt that was obtained through fraud, and damages from personal injuries resulting from the use of alcohol or drugs. Under chapter 7, it may be possible to retain your home, an automobile and other personal property. A good first step to trying to see about clearing at least part of the slate of debt is to contact a Minnesota law firm that can help with your particular legal concern whether it be employment, personal injury, civil litigation, business or bankruptcy to meet with a qualified Minnesota lawyer to address your concerns and get your legal questions answered. A Minneapolis law firm can provide needed information and help a person formulate an approach that is suitable to helping alleviate the legal pressures that are bothering them.
