Student loan debt and Chapter 7 bankruptcy

When a Tennessee consumer is overwhelmed by his or her financial responsibilities, it can lead to unpleasant consequences, such as wage garnishment and other debt collection efforts. Credit card debt and medical bills can lead to an unmanageable debt burden, as can student loan debt. Many people seek debt relief through Chapter 7 bankruptcy, but one type of debt not dischargeable through this process is student loan debt.

Many consumers will go into 2020 seeking debt relief

The impact of owing a significant amount of debt can be significant. In addition to the stress that comes with bills are piling up and interest accumulating, many people also face the threat of losing personal property and calls from debt collectors. In fact, many Tennessee residents will start 2020 looking for effective debt relief options.

Medical care is expensive, even for people who have health insurance. When a Tennessee resident goes in for surgery, needs diagnostic testing or has to visit the emergency room, he or she may find bills from the hospital or doctor in the mailbox a few weeks later. These bills can come as a surprise, leaving many people struggling with medical debt they cannot pay. As a result, some hospitals are actually suing these people for payment.

Accumulating credit card debt during the holiday season

The holidays are fast approaching, which means many in Tennessee are getting ready to spend money on traveling, presents and other expenses that pop up during this time of year. Most people are not prepared to pay cash for all of their holiday purchases, which means that many will rely on credit cards to buy what they want and need. Often, this leads to a significant accumulation of credit card debt in a short amount of time.
