Overwhelming debt: Mississippians can eliminate or reorganize

When faced with a problem, the solution is usually either to wipe out the cause of the problem or plan a new way of tackling the challenge.

Usually, the two main options are Chapter 7 bankruptcy or Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

One of the most harrowing experiences of any adult Mississippian's life is dealing with debt that has gone into collections.

Chapter 7: Keep some property, liquidate other assets

It was recently revealed that over 190,000 jobs were likely added to the U.S. economy this past March.

Many residents are still struggling with unemployment or underemployment; in either case, that challenge can lead to one's struggling with debt as well.

However, many residents of Mississippi must grapple with not only their own financial difficulties, but also those of their family members. Many couples, for instance, have joint bank accounts, jointly-owned property, and may be listed on a partner's mortgage, car title or credit card.
