Knowing credit card debt rights can help New Jersey consumers

Simply having credit card debt can be stressful enough. Add in harassment from debt collectors or non-stop, repetitive calls at home or work, and many people feel overwhelmed and even hopeless. New Jersey consumers facing creditor harassment for credit card debt should know their rights to protect themselves, and also understand how an attorney with experience in handling such matters could offer assistance.

Personal bankruptcy may help New Jersey residents' credit scores

At one point or another in their lives, many people find themselves in the midst of what feels like insurmountable financial troubles. Often through no fault of their own, individuals face mounting credit card debt or other types of personal or medical debt and simply don't know where to turn. New Jersey residents can take comfort in knowing that filing for personal bankruptcy can actually be beneficial for their credit scores.

Is ownership of a car protected in Chapter 13 bankruptcy?

When New Jersey consumers experience financial difficulties with no indication that their circumstances will improve shortly, they may consider filing for bankruptcy. However, those who cannot do without their cars may be concerned about the possibility of having to give it up if they file for Chapter 13 bankruptcies. Except under a few circumstances, consumers may be allowed to keep at least one vehicle.

How will personal bankruptcy affect a sole proprietorship?
