Has your financial situation gone through ups and downs during the last 5 or 10 years?  Any number of unforeseen circumstances can rock your financial boat, especially an unexpected decrease in income (or loss of employment altogether) as well as a sudden medical urgency or other family crises. 

If creditors take action against you, bankruptcy could help

You have reached a point in your life where you realize that your financial troubles can no longer be ignored. For a time, you may have convinced yourself that your situation did not pose a considerable issue or that you could get a handle on your affairs when you reached a point you designated in your mind. However, that point either never came or did not offer the relief you thought it would bring.

While there are certain things in life you plan for or come to expect, other situations or issues may arise suddenly, without notice, or develop over time without you being quite aware of what's happening.

Each of these issues, as well as many others, may affect your finances either positively or negatively.

Bankruptcy myths busted

Millions of Americans currently live paycheck to paycheck. They may be one small disaster away from living on the streets.

Recognizing a need for bankruptcy and solution options

Do you ever think back to when your Ohio business was just a dream? If so, you might recall the various challenges you encountered and overcame to bring that dream to fruition. It's hard to believe more than a decade has gone by. Like many people who built their own businesses from the ground up, you wouldn't change a thing. All the long hours, hard work and trial and error through learning experiences paid off and you enjoyed years of continued success.

How does wage garnishment work, and how can I make it stop?
