Frequently Asked Questions about Bankruptcy

Q: Why do so many folks file bankruptcy?

A: Americans generally have overextended themselves by using too much easily accessible credit to finance overspending, combined with lack of savings. With no financial safety net, sudden crises such as medical emergencies, job losses or failed businesses, death or disability of spouses, or divorce can result in insurmountable debt.

Q: What alternative courses of action are there to filing bankruptcy when facing overwhelming debt?

A: Short of bankruptcy, a debtor may enter into mediation with creditors or negotiate workout agreements to extend due dates, lower interest rates, partially forgive debt, or alter other terms. These options can be risky  as the debt you don’t pay back could be sold to a debt buyer  who could come after you later.

To help sort your way through the complicated maze of  bankruptcy, you need the assistance of knowledgeable legal advocates, with years of experience and demonstrated trustworthiness.

If you are facing financial problems, an experienced bankruptcy lawyer can explain bankruptcy options that can help you to get a fresh start on life and a return to financial stability. At the Glasgow, Kentucky, law office of bankruptcy attorney John Rogers, we have a thorough understanding of the realities faced by people entering into Chapter 7 bankruptcy or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. It is our goal to help our clients find realistic solutions to their financial problems.

Independent Information on Filing Bankruptcy … What You Need to Know

Posted on September 19, 2018. Filed under: Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, Consumer Alerts, Consumer Bankruptcy Attorney | Tags: , , |

The well respected National  Consumer Law Center has published an excellent article for the public entitled “Deciding Whether to File for Bankruptcy”.

Here’s an excerpt:

“Federal law provides the right to file bankruptcy for people with debt problems. This article explains how bankruptcy can help you and when it may be the wrong solution for you. It also describes the difference between chapter 7 and 13 bankruptcies, lets you know the best time to file for bankruptcy, and sets out what a bankruptcy will cost. Importantly, the article corrects common misconceptions about bankruptcy.”

I would highly recommend that if you are considering filing for bankruptcy, or even if you are just thinking about your  debts, that you read this article.

Finding information about filing bankruptcy from someone  other than a bankruptcy attorney or law firm can be difficult. This article provides the information.

If, after reading the article, you think we can help,  give us a call and  we will schedule  you a free,  no obligation appointment to discuss your  options.

Your Tax Refund and Bankruptcy: What to Know

Posted on January 24, 2018. Filed under: Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, Consumer Alerts, Consumer Bankruptcy Attorney | Tags: , , , |

tax-refund-2.jpg

Tax refund time is here.  We have questions from folks as to whether they can file Chapter 7 bankruptcy before or after filing taxes and still keep their tax refunds.

The answer is that they generally can keep their refunds, depending, of course, on how large the refund is. The general bankruptcy exemptions available under the federal bankruptcy exemptions (which can be used in Kentucky) are usually large enough to protect most tax refunds from being lost to the trustee. You can also use your tax refund to pay the fees and costs for the bankruptcy.

Also, if you are thinking about filing bankruptcy, and are going to use your tax refund to pay off a debt to a family member or creditor prior to filing bankruptcy, you should consult with a bankruptcy attorney before doing that. There are provisions in the bankruptcy law which may allow the trustee to take that money back from the family member or creditor should you then file bankruptcy after paying them. Alternatively, if you just keep the refund and don’t pay any of it to anyone, then the refund may be able to be protected with the exemptions as outlined above.

Your circumstances may be unique, so always discuss your options with a bankruptcy attorney before you do anything with your tax refund money.

Will you get to keep your tax refund money if you file bankruptcy ?

Posted on January 5, 2018. Filed under: Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, Consumer Alerts, Consumer Bankruptcy Attorney | Tags: , , |

It will soon be that time of year for tax refunds. We have questions from folks as to whether they can file Chapter 7 bankruptcy before filing taxes and still keep their tax refunds coming to them after they file bankruptcy or whether they can keep a tax refund received right before filing bankruptcy.

The answer is that they generally can keep their refunds, depending, of course, on how large the refund is and what you do with the refund. The general bankruptcy exemptions available under the federal bankruptcy exemptions (which can be used in Kentucky) are usually large enough to protect most tax refunds from being taken by the trustee. You can also use your tax refund to pay the fees and costs for the bankruptcy.

Also, if you are thinking about filing bankruptcy, and are going to use your tax refund to pay off a debt to a family member or creditor prior to filing bankruptcy, you should consult with a bankruptcy attorney before doing that. There are provisions in the bankruptcy law which may allow the trustee to take that money back from the family member or creditor should you then file bankruptcy after paying them. Alternatively, if you just keep the refund and don’t pay any of it to anyone, then the refund may be able to be protected with the exemptions as outlined above.
