Another famous individual, musician Meatloaf, struggled with addiction and other medical issues. These led to a variety of problems, including financial ones. Again, Meatloaf was able to overcome his financial problems through bankruptcy.
Almost every Kentucky resident will struggle financially at one time or another. For some, this struggle is short-lived and they find a way out. For others, however, the struggle just seems to get harder and harder to overcome. When this happens, filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy may the answer.
