Can you discharge student loan debt through bankruptcy?

As many of our readers in Colorado may know, many people in our nation are struggling under an insurmountable amount of student loan debt. Many factors, including the economy, job markets and skyrocketing tuition prices, have led many people to take out student loans that they are ultimately unable to pay back. Unlike other types of loans, generally, student loan debt cannot be discharged through Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. However, there are always exceptions to the rules, and in very limited circumstances a person may be able to discharge their student loan debt through bankruptcy.

Addressing property division issues in a prenuptial agreement

While some couples in Colorado marry young without much by way of assets to their names, it is not unusual for couples to marry at older ages these days, or even to divorce and re-marry a second time. This also means that it is not unusual for couples to enter into a marriage with significant assets of their own. Some of these assets may be investments, retirement accounts, bank accounts or even a house.

Medical bills, even for the insured, can spell financial disaster

When most people think about having to file for bankruptcy, they think of people who have amassed massive credit card debt. What most individuals don't consider is that many people who are contemplating bankruptcy are in this position because of a medical condition or emergency.

Can a short-sale stop home foreclosure?

When a person in Colorado is facing foreclosure, it can be incredibly stressful. After all, that person may have tried selling the home at a price that would allow them to pay off their mortgage, but could not find a willing buyer, especially if the value of the home is less than what is owed on it. And, losing one's home to foreclosure can be a terrible blow that only exacerbates a person's financial troubles. If a person finds themselves facing foreclosure, they may have some options for stopping the foreclosure process. One of these options is a short-sale.

Parents in Colorado can plan for the school year post-divorce

Summer has come and gone, and children across Colorado are going back to school. While this can be an exciting time of year for some children, for children whose parents are divorced going back to school can be stressful. It is important for divorced parents to work together to set their child up for success in school.
