For some, bankruptcy is the only way to stop foreclosure

The crash of the housing market back in 2008 is still affecting millions of homeowners across the country. Many New Jersey residents who hoped their homes would increase in value when they bought them before the housing crisis are still struggling with declining home values. For some of them, bankruptcy could be the only way to stop foreclosure.

Filing bankruptcy could save your house and stop harassment

When a New Jersey resident encounters financial difficulties, it can feel overwhelming. Creditors who are calling you constantly, threatening to foreclose on your home and garnish your wages often compound the concern. Fortunately, filing for bankruptcy can provide a way to get out from under most -- if not all -- of your debt.

Recent study's data shows people fare better after bankruptcy

New Jersey residents have experienced numerous economic setbacks in recent years from which many people are still attempting to recover. Bankruptcy is an effective option that helps families and individuals who are unable to pay their debts. In fact, a recent study indicates that people who do file bankruptcy and receive a discharge fare better than those who continue to struggle to pay their bills.

Divorce and filing bankruptcy in New Jersey

As is the case around the country, up to one-half of the married couples in New Jersey will divorce. Ending a marriage can take a financial toll on both parties even if their financial situation was good prior to the divorce. In some cases, money problems are what lead to the parties going their separate ways. Bankruptcy could be a way to alleviate financial problems.

Stop harassing phone calls from creditors and debt collectors

Any number of reasons can cause a New Jersey resident to get behind on his or her financial obligations. When that happens, debt collection actions begin. Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), it is possible to stop harassing phone calls from creditors and debt collectors. In fact, some of the practices used by debt collectors are illegal under the Act, and consumers need to know what some of those illegal practices encompass.
