Controlling behavior and deciding to divorce

Marriages come to an end for a plethora of different reasons, such as physical abuse or an affair that resulted in gossip throughout the family (and even community). That said, some problems may be more difficult for others to detect, but they can still be very serious and may ultimately seal the fate of a marriage. For example, if someone is very controlling in their spouse’s life, their behavior may cause the marriage to fall apart. If you have a very controlling marital partner, you may be tired of the different challenges you have to face, and you may be considering moving on.

Medical expenses: A major cause of bankruptcy

When people file for bankruptcy, they are often seeking relief from a surmounting pile of loan payments, debt and expenses. Medical expenses, however, are one of the most common types of debt responsible for pushing people off the financial ledge. Whether they have just been diagnosed with a chronic condition or they are required to go in for an unexpected surgical procedure, people may find themselves with medical debt. Furthermore, people may not be able to work while they are recovering or may become disabled and unable to work at all. 

What is loan reaffirmation in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy?

When you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you have the opportunity to discharge the majority of your debts and start again with a clean financial slate. Also referred to as liquidation bankruptcy, Chapter 7 may be beneficial for you if you are overwhelmed with credit card debt, mortgage payments, car loan payments, medical expenses and other bills that have been following you around for years. There may be, however, some property that you do not wish to part with once your bankruptcy is finalized. Whether you want to stay in your family home or want to keep your car, you may want to consider reaffirming your loan.
