According to a study from CNSnews.com, the most common form of debt comes from mortgages, at 44%. Unpaid credit card balances come next with 39%. Car loans make up 37%, and student loans round out the list with 21%. These numbers are absolutely staggering, and a large portion of that 80% will never live to see themselves debt free.
This year, rather than use your tax return on something frivolous, invest in fixing your finances. Bankruptcy is a powerful tool that aids those struggling and drowning in their debt, offering a fresh start and a chance to correct the mistakes of their past.
People who reside, own property, or have a place of business in the United States may file for bankruptcy under Chapter 7. Chapter 13 enables debtors with regular income to create a plan to repay all or part of their debts to creditors over a three-to-five-year period.
The Orlando Law Group specializes in both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, and will help you navigate this process, and get your financial life back on track! To book a consultation, call us at 407.512.4394.
