Most people in Tennessee and around the country want to pay their bills, be responsible citizens and provide for their families. In a healthy economy, this should be an achievable goal. The reality is that even though the economy as a whole is healthy, wages have not kept up, and many people struggle to pay their monthly bills. If an un-anticipated crisis such as a layoff or health issue occurs, barely keeping up can rapidly become failing to keep up. Credit card debt can contribute significantly to the seriousness of the situation.

A business entity or an individual borrower who is unable to repay creditors for loans, goods or services will generally file a court petition to declare bankruptcy.
