Former governor's first lady files Chapter 13 bankruptcy

It might be easy for those in Nashville who are struggling with debt to think that the answer to their problems is to simply make more money. This no doubt comes from the perception that an abundance of income can easily overcome one's liabilities. Yet there are countless cases out there suggesting the contrary. People at all income levels may be subject to financial struggles, many of which are due to a plethora of circumstances. Some might be saddled with unexpected medical expenses; others might simply struggle in effectively managing their money. Then there are those who face a seemingly perfect storm of dire financial circumstances. 

What is an automatic stay?

Many in Nashville often ask "when does filing for bankruptcy become your best option in dealing with your debt?" Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to that question. There may be cases where simply "tightening your belt" for six months to a year would allow to get your debts back under control. However, there may come a point where multiple creditors are looking to initiate collection activities against you, which could serve to further compound your struggles. In these situations, the automatic stay afforded through a Chapter 13 bankruptcy could prove to be beneficial. 

How many households struggle with medical debt?

Tennesseans currently wading through a sea of debt know all too well that recovering from this financial hit can take a considerable amount of time and effort.

Although each situation can be unique, a common question surfaces during this process: what are the main differences between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13? 

How much does bankruptcy hurt my credit score?

Perhaps one of the most common concerns among people in Tennessee who are considering filing for bankruptcy is how severe the impact will be to their credit scores. This is an understandable concern as credit scores are evaluated in so many things today including many pre-employment hiring background checks. However, as MarketWatch indicates, while you should be prepared for an initial drop in your credit score after filing bankruptcy, you can help it improve sooner than you may think.

How Chapter 13 differs from Chapter 7

When faced with serious financial challenges, many Tennessee residents may understandably begin to consider whether or not filing for bankruptcy might be the best option for them. In making this decision, it will be important for people to have an understanding about the two primary forms of consumer bankruptcy and how each plan differs. This knowledge will help debtors to make the right choice for their debt-relief needs.
