What Debt is Dischargeable through Bankruptcy?

June 27, 2011 Posted by kingcade

Bankruptcy laws specify that only particular types of debts can be discharged through bankruptcy. Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy allow borrowers to eliminate their unsecured debts. Unsecured debts include items such as credit card debt, medical bills, utility bills, service bills, personal loans, payday loans and judgments. Secured debts which are backed by some form of collateral, like a house, and debts incurred through fraudulent activity, student loans, tax debts, child support and alimony are typically not dischargeable in bankruptcy.

Foreclosure Relief Effort Finally Kicks Off- But there’s a Catch

June 25, 2011 Posted by kingcade

A long-awaited $1 billion program designed to provide the unemployed with loans to assist them in avoiding foreclosure is finally underway. But there’s a catch: Homeowners will have only one month to apply. The new Emergency Homeowners’ Loan Program aims to help unemployed homeowners with their mortgage payments by providing zero-interest loans of up to $50,000. The program is expected to aid 30,000 borrowers, and the loans can be forgiven over five years. Homeowners will need to apply by July 22 to be eligible for the program. Borrowers must be approved by September 30. At this point, the government’s authority to make new loans will have run out, so timing is everything!

Gamblers in Debt have Luck on their side as a result of New Bankruptcy Laws

June 17, 2011 Posted by kingcade

In the past, bankruptcy courts have found gambling debts as non-dischargeable. However, due to recent changes in the law, gambling debts owed to a casino can be eligible for debt discharge through bankruptcy. Gamblers often get trapped in a vicious cycle, taking cash advances in the hope that future earnings will pay them off. Gambling can be a slippery slope and can lead to addiction and financial devastation. However, gamblers have some luck on their side if they take advantage of the current bankruptcy laws, as a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing can eliminate gambling debts.
