A difficult task: Proving undue hardship with student loan debt

Of all the bills that Americans have to pay, student loans are atop the list for many people. Unfortunately, someone struggling with finances in Washington, D.C., or elsewhere across the country will find that it is nearly impossible to get rid of student loan debt, even after filing for bankruptcy.

The alternatives to filing for bankruptcy in Washington, D.C.

Every year, hundreds of people file for bankruptcy in Washington, D.C. According to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Columbia, there have been 513 bankruptcy filings so far this year, including Chapter 7, Chapter 11 and Chapter 13. While that route may be beneficial for some, it is important that people who are struggling financially understand the other options available for getting a fresh start.

Is that credit card debt transfer offer a good idea?

Using credit cards has its positives and negatives. In a previous blog post, you learned about different ways in which you can control your credit card balances to avoid financial problems. One option, which you may receive often, is an offer from credit card companies that features 0 percent interest on a balance transfer. However, is this offer a benefit or the source of further issues?

What to do if you cannot make your Chapter 13 payments

When you filed your Chapter 13 petition in Washington, D.C., your debts were organized based on the amount you were able to pay based on your current income and living expenses. We at Ammerman and Goldberg Bankruptcy Law Office understand that keeping up with payments is not always easy when emergency or life-altering circumstances crop up. If this happens to you, it is very important that you address the problem right away, before you miss a payment, or your case may be dismissed and your debts reinstated.
