Tennessee residents may consider bankruptcy for credit card debt

It is not unusual for individuals across the country, including in Tennessee, to have credit cards. Additionally, many of those individuals also have considerable credit card debt. The amount of debt accrued by consumers can lead to substantial difficulties, and individuals may wish to find ways to handle their debt in an effective manner. 

Bankruptcy can stop creditor harassment over credit card debt

Many consumers in Tennessee and other states are harassed by debt collectors every day. Reportedly, the Consumer Protection Financial Bureau is working on overhauling the rules related to debt collecting and the limits placed on collection agencies. The bureau says a recent study revealed that about three in 10 consumers who were questioned indicated that they had experienced creditor or debt collector calls during the past year. One in three of those said the debt collectors tried to collect amounts that had already been paid, or they demanded the wrong amounts. These calls can be for forgotten medical bills, unpaid credit card debt and more.

Chapter 7 may be the answer for some Tennessee residents

Bankruptcy is a debt management option that many Tennessee residents may have considered at one point or another. Chapter 7 is the most common form of bankruptcy, and its liquidation process has allowed numerous individuals to get back to financial stability. As such, individuals who are on the fence about filing their own personal bankruptcy may wish to look into the potential benefits. 

Debt forgiveness may depend on bankruptcy type in Tennessee

Tennessee residents looking to get back on stable financial ground may wonder about the best routes for doing so. Considering bankruptcy may be a viable route to take, but some individuals may be concerned about what types of debt may be forgiven through this process. Though it often depends on which type of bankruptcy is filed, there are some liabilities that may not be discharged.
