Credit Cards & Medical Bills
A Common, Solvable Issue
Credit Card Debts, Medical Bills And Bankruptcy
The high interest rates charged by credit card companies make it difficult, if not impossible, for many people to repay their debts. In fact, just paying the monthly minimum payment on large credit card debts means that you could be repaying credit card debt for many years without significantly paying down the principal.
Medical bills are another common cause of bankruptcy. A 2009 article by CNN provides a startling account:
This year, an estimated 1.5 million Americans will declare bankruptcy. Many people may chalk up that misfortune to overspending or a lavish lifestyle, but a new study suggests that more than 60 percent of people who go bankrupt are actually capsized by medical bills.
Discharge Credit Card Debt And Medical Bills With Bankruptcy
There is a solution. Through a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you may be able to completely discharge your credit card debt and medical bills. While you must meet certain eligibility standards to qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, many of the people who contact our office are eligible for such relief.
If you are not eligible for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you may still be able to discharge a portion of your credit card debt and medical bills with a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
