Common missteps that could lead to bankruptcy

Of all of the financial setbacks that people experience, bankruptcy is perhaps the most dreadful. In the majority of cases, filing for bankruptcy in Virginia can leave people facing an uncertain future and long-term consequences that take time to amend and overcome. When people understand what missteps to avoid in order to stay financially secure and reduce their risk of having to file for bankruptcy, they can make wiser decisions about how they choose to spend their money. 

Bankruptcy will relieve all my debt, right?

If you find yourself in a bad financial spot and realize there is no way out, you may want to consider the benefits of filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. With this, you'll find it possible to eliminate or reorganize most of your debt, thus putting you in a better financial position.

Can you do things to settle your divorce faster?

You and your spouse have made the mutual decision to get a divorce in Virginia and now the real work begins. It is time to begin making decisions about who will have primary custody of your children, which of you will pay alimony, how assets should be split and how retirement accounts will be divided. With so many time-consuming and critical decisions to be made, is there a way you can make everything go faster? Fortunately, by applying some general suggestions, you may be able to keep the process moving efficiently without compromising your benefits. 

Determining Chapter 7 eligibility with the bankruptcy means test

If you count yourself among the many people across Virginia who are dealing with overwhelming debt and considering filing for bankruptcy, you may have heard the terms “Chapter 7” and “Chapter 13” thrown around. You may not know exactly how they differ, though, or whether you are eligible to file for bankruptcy through either method. At Ferriswinder, PLLC, we understand how the bankruptcy means test determines Chapter 7 eligibility, and we have helped many clients find bankruptcy solutions that meet their specific needs.

Auction scheduled to locate potential buyer for Bon-Ton Stores

It is always surprising when well-known brands or companies announce that they are filing for bankruptcy protection and are on the verge of being liquidated entirely. For many companies, the thought of shuttering their doors despite a wildly successful run at some point, is met with feelings of disappointment and loss. While an organization in Virginia may have been coasting ahead of the competition in the past, sudden changes in the economy or consumer interest, poor financial decisions and even lackluster product development or advertising can create detrimental problems. 

How do I know if my credit card debt is spiraling out of control?
