Will I ever be able to buy a home after bankruptcy?

If you are like many of the people in Ohio who are struggling with unmanageable levels of debt, you might have considered filing for bankruptcy at least once. Seeking debt relief via a bankruptcy, whether a Chapter 7 or a Chapter 13 plan, is a big step that does require thorough investigation. This investigation can help you identify if bankruptcy is right for you and which type of plan might be best for you. It can also help you to feel more confident about your financial future after a bankruptcy.

Bankruptcy and cryptocurrency investments

When it comes to filing a bankruptcy petition, we have looked into many different legal issues affecting those who are facing financial challenges. With the emergence of new financial considerations due to technology, such as cryptocurrency investments, there are even more matters that you may need to consider before or during your bankruptcy. For example, your cryptocurrency investments may have resulted in your financial hardships after unfortunate developments, and this is certainly not uncommon due to the very nature of cryptocurrency markets. Moreover, you may wonder how filing for bankruptcy could affect your current cryptocurrency holdings.

How to balance bankruptcy with divorce

For many couples in Ohio, financial challenges can create or add to marital strife. Problems with money can even at times contribute to an irreconcilable breakdown of a marriage. If you and your spouse are in this situation where you have decided to get divorced but still need to figure out how to deal with your debt, you may even be considering bankruptcy. Before you rush into filing for bankruptcy or divorce, however, it is important to assess the timing of each of these things.

Filing for bankruptcy after an injury

People find themselves in difficult financial positions for different reasons, but some are completely unexpected. For example, a business owner who has been struggling with declining sales may have been considering bankruptcy for quite some time. On the other hand, someone who is completely healthy (physically and financially) may find themselves in a completely unexpected position after suffering a serious injury.

When an entity does succumb to bankruptcy in Ohio, the outcome can create lingering consequences that will take time and resources to fully recover from. 

What are the Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 eligibility requirements?

If you feel overwhelmed with crushing debt, filing for bankruptcy may be a way that you can reboot your finances and start over. There are usually two types of bankruptcy that individuals in Ohio may file: Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. Chapter 13 is reorganization bankruptcy in which you and the court work together to formulate a plan for you to repay the debt that you owe over the course of several years. Chapter 7, on the other hand, is a liquidation bankruptcy in which you pay off your debts by selling off some of your assets.

Certificates you need before your bankruptcy can be discharged

The U.S. Bankruptcy Code includes several requirements for filers in Ohio and across the country. One of these for anyone who plans to file a Chapter 7, 11, 12 or 13 bankruptcy is completing a credit counseling course through an approved agency, according to the United States Department of Justice.
