Hard inquiries often follow debt relief

When a Louisiana resident files for bankruptcy, it no doubt has numerous consequences in his or her immediate financial future. There are various types of bankruptcy and determining which type best fits a given set of circumstances can be challenging. Once a solid solution is found, however, debt relief can help avoid foreclosure and even wipe the financial slate clean. It also typically has an impact on a credit report.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy situation leads to customer complaints

A family-run store in another state came upon hard times as online shopping and home delivery grew more popular. At least, that's what a spokesperson for the company recently said. The owners wound up filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy in early September. The events that unfolded after that have affected not only those directly involved but the community at large as well. If a similar problem were to arise in Louisiana, those involved may want to seek outside support. 

Debt relief options that help avoid foreclosure

While Louisiana laws may vary from other states, there are still options available to help someone keep from losing a home to foreclosure. Financial crisis often hits when least expected. Many homeowners feel stressed and helpless when notices from lenders start showing up in the mail. The more someone knows about debt relief programs ahead of time, the better.

Even billionaires need debt relief sometimes

Many Louisiana residents are experiencing financial problems, as are others throughout the country. Some might be hesitant to reach out for support because they feel embarrassed or worried about perceived social stigmas attached to certain debt relief options like bankruptcy. However, the simple fact is that even the wealthiest business owners in America sometimes run into financial trouble.

Senator reintroduces legislation over Medical Debt Relief Act

Louisiana residents are definitely not immune to financial challenges associated with medical debt. Most households, in fact, include one or more members who have obtained some form of medical care or treatment in the past several years. It is no secret how expensive medical care, products and devices are as well as how often such care prompts the need for immediate debt relief.
