chapter 7 bankruptcy Archives

Boomers and bankruptcy

Residents in Louisiana who are near, at or even after the age of retirement may never have expected to be facing serious debt and financial problems at this stage of their life. However, consumers of all ages can find themselves in this problem, forcing them to file for bankruptcy or seek other means of debt relief. This trend is particularly noticeable in people who are 65 years of age and older.

How the bankruptcy means test determines Chapter 7 eligibility

As one of many people across Louisiana struggling with finances, you may be working through your options and trying to determine whether filing for bankruptcy might help you begin to dig your way out of debt. If you do decide to move forward with a personal bankruptcy and wish to do so with a Chapter 7 filing, you will first need to pass a bankruptcy means test. At Pierce & Shows, APLC, we recognize that the results of your bankruptcy means test will determine whether you can move ahead with a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. We have helped many people facing similar situations figure out whether a Chapter 7 bankruptcy or an alternative option might better suit their needs.

The holidays are over, but their financial effects might not be

There are many things people here in Louisiana may be feeling now that the holidays have reached their conclusion. Unfortunately, not all of these feelings are happy ones. For example, some may be feeling regret or worry over their holiday spending.
