Discharging Credit Card Debt in Bankruptcy
It is amazing just how quickly credit card debt can spiral out of control, thanks to obscenely high interest rates. There is a misconception that poor spending habits are what lead to credit card debt. While this may play a role in some cases, the reality is that people often turn to credit cards in emergency situations. When a medical problem causes missed work and missed wages, food still needs to be put on the table. Credit cards can help. After a divorce, when adjustments are being made to a new life, credit cards can do a lot of good.
It really does not matter what happened. Bankruptcy does not discriminate based on how you became overwhelmed by debt. If credit card debt has you stuck between a rock and a hard place, consider a board-certified bankruptcy lawyer from Rothschild & Ausbrooks, PLLC. Contact our firm today to arrange your free consultation.
Credit card debt is unsecured debt. Unsecured debt can be thought of as debt that is not tied to property. A car is secured debt — it can be repossessed if a person does not pay.
