Ways Of Handling Money That Can Lead To Bankruptcy

Sunday, January 9th, 2011

There are ways of handling money that can lead to a need for debt relief.  These financial approaches by consumers are common causes of personal bankruptcy.  The following ways of handling money can lead to serious financial problems including the need to declare bankruptcy:
•    Making purchases based on what you want rather than what you need.
•    Making large purchases that are beyond your current ability to pay for them.
•    Purchasing things under payment arrangements that call for high interest rates.
•    Purchasing items with a credit card that you cannot afford to pay for with cash.
•    Utilizing a credit card to pay on a bill and/or bills due on other credit cards
•    Inattention to the interest rate that a credit card carries with it.
•    Spending beyond the credit limit set by an account and incurring charges for being over the limit.
•    Being late on paying your credit card causing late fees to be charged.
•    Paying only the minimum payment due on a credit card.
•    Failing to keep have savings funds to cover a financial emergency
•    Not making mortgage payments on time
•    Failure to make timely motor vehicle payments
•    Not following a monthly budget for regular expected expenses.
•    Spending more money yearly than income that is received.
•    Procrastinating on try to improve and/or eliminate debt problems

Some people put off attending to money problems with the idea that things will get better over time.  This approach may lead to even more serious financial problems as time goes on.  Money problems should be promptly attended to by a consumer.  Procrastination on attending to money problems can lead to judgments against a consumer, garnishment, repossession and foreclosure. If a consumer finds that his or her resources are insufficient to deal with the problem then professional legal assistance should be sought to deal with the situation.  Consumers who are considering bankruptcy can contact a Twin Cities law firm that has a bankruptcy service.  The law office can set up a meeting for the consumer to discuss bankruptcy with a Minneapolis bankruptcy attorney or St. Paul bankruptcy.   A meeting with a Twin Cities bankruptcy attorney can be useful in determining potential avenues of relief.  At a meeting with a bankruptcy lawyer there can be a discussion of bankruptcy alternatives.  A consumer can at a meeting with a Minnesota bankruptcy attorney to  explore potential legal help including relief under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 of the federal bankruptcy law or, if a consumer is a Wisconsin resident under Wisconsin Chapter 128. People who face serious debt problems should not procrastinate, but rather move promptly to find a way to improve the situation.

Bankruptcy Assessment In Minnesota

Sunday, December 26th, 2010


A person or couple who want to do a bankruptcy must be eligible to do so under prevailing bankruptcy law.  In looking at declaring a bankruptcy there should be a bankruptcy assessment which is a review of a person or couple’s financial situation.  The bankruptcy assessment is an evaluation of a person’s financial situation to determine if he or she are qualified to file bankruptcy. At the time of conducting the bankruptcy evaluation the twin cities bankruptcy attorney can also conduct a bankruptcy means test.   Debtor’s troubled by growing financial pressures can seek out potential debt relief through the legal help of a Minnesota bankruptcy attorney who can conduct a bankruptcy assessment.  A person or couple can set up a time to meet with a Minneapolis bankruptcy attorney or St. Paul bankruptcy attorney who will go over the relevant financial situation to help a person considering doing a bankruptcy. At that meeting with a bankruptcy lawyer some of the considerations will be debt a consumer  may owe on both secured and unsecured assets, what assets are  owned and what is owed on the asset, ability to meet current obligations, threat of repossession, garnishment and/or foreclosure.   A Twin Cities law firm who offers a bankruptcy service is a good place to start to look for a Minnesota lawyer who can do a bankruptcy evaluation and provide legal assistance with doing the bankruptcy  if the debtor is qualified to do so.
