Freedom From Debt Is On The Horizon

Chapter 7 a possible route to handling debt

For many Americans, debt is a reality of day-to-day life. Kentucky residents know debt can accrue for many reasons, from unforeseen medical debt to a loss of income leading to credit card spending. Thankfully, the options for households facing serious debt are diverse -- from credit counseling to Chapter 7 bankruptcy, there is a solution for every family.

Cutting unnecessary expenses and creating a comprehensive budget are both good places to start for the average American family, which often finds itself spending money where it need not be spent. Some families find it helpful to cut down on entertainment and dining out as one way of "cutting corners" and reducing costs. Building a budget that takes into consideration where money is being overspent, and plotting a course toward lowered spending across the board, is also helpful.

Having a clear understanding of existing debt is also important. This is the first step toward restructuring debt in a way that makes it easier to pay down. Consolidating debts, seeking out credit counseling and other options are available. For those in truly dire circumstances, Chapter 7 bankruptcy offers the ability to liquidate assets to pay down debt, as well as discharging unsecured debt.

No two situations are alike for Kentucky residents facing debt struggles. This is why it is so important to seek out the support and expertise of a financial professional, especially in cases where Chapter 7 bankruptcy is on the table. An attorney can help navigate the process in order to help an individual or family find financial footing on solid ground.
