Bankruptcies are down but memories of hard times linger

Bankruptcy is a difficult possibility to face. Many years of work and investment must have gone awry for a person to have a high enough level of debt to consider it. But bankruptcy can easily happen to conscientious people with a modest living, and it can happen due to circumstances out of their control.

When you are divorced and both parents are living at separate residences, it can be even more chaotic.

A general overview of New Hampshire alimony laws

The end of a marriage can be difficult on a person, emotionally and financially. This may be especially true if one spouse earned much more than the other spouse while the couple was married, or if one spouse stayed out of the workforce entirely while married to care for the household. For this reason, the lesser-earning spouse may want to seek alimony (also called spousal support) from the greater-earning spouse as part of the final divorce decree. It is important, then, for residents to have a basic understanding of alimony laws in their state.

Do you know the difference between secured and unsecured debt?

Even though there are many different types of debt, there are two main forms: secured debt and unsecured. Most of the debt you have will fall into one of these two categories.

New Hampshire may use debt relief to counter an aging population

Debt is often part of the American experience for professionals and seniors. Students start their lives with costly educations, and many people begin their golden age with new medical expenses to resolve. When debt gets out of control, we often need help. Some in New Hampshire may be getting it before long.

An overview of some Chapter 13 bankruptcy requirements

Many in New Hampshire at some point fall on hard times financially. They may lose their job forcing them to rely on credit cards for daily expenses. They may experience a serious illness that racks up hefty medical bills. Or, they may find that they have fallen behind on their mortgage obligations and when they try to sell their home to satisfy them, their home is worth less than what they still owe to the lender. These situations are not necessarily anyone's fault, but they could spell financial disaster to even the most fiscally responsible person.
