A Divorce Can Divide a Family and Double Expenses

A divorce can be both emotionally and financially devastating. A two-income family has been torn apart. A primary wage earner has moved out. Mortgage and car payments that were once easy to pay have become a burden. Credit card bills are out of control with late fees and other penalties.

A Sudden Job Loss Upends Financial Stability

An unexpected layoff ends a steady stream of income. Without warning, the money going out exceeds the money coming in. You may receive unemployment benefits, but that represents a portion of the income you once enjoyed. Even a slight loss of income can cause strain on your financial situation.

Growing Medical Bills for Illness or Injury Become Out of Control

A sudden illness or injury can cause financial distress. You may not have health insurance or your plan may only cover a portion of your medical bills. Thousands of dollars later, you are experiencing stress from collection agencies calling you. You attempt to keep up, but end up sacrificing other bills in the process.

Credit Card Debt

Credit cards are tools of convenience. But credit card debt can quickly spiral out of control, considering the high interest rates most companies charge. Many people end up paying interest only when making minimum monthly payments, doing nothing to reduce the actual principle. Find out more about discharging credit card debt through bankruptcy.
