When will my debts be discharged after filing for bankruptcy?

Long Islanders who are having financial challenges and have sought relief through filing for bankruptcy might not be fully cognizant of certain basic factors. These are important to understand as the process moves forward. One question that might be foremost in the debtor's mind is when the discharge of debts will take place. Knowing the answer to this foundational question can help the debtor prepare for the future.

Financial challenges can happen to anyone in New York and across the country. Even those who seemingly had it all with major paychecks, fame and a prominent lifestyle are vulnerable to financial realities and must consider alternatives such as filing for bankruptcy if they are no longer able to make their payments and the debt turns into an endless cycle. For any debtor who has reached the point where it is necessary to find a way to get back on stronger financial ground, it is wise to consider bankruptcy.

Financial challenges and disclosures debt collectors must make

Long Islanders who are facing financial challenges and might be dealing with delinquent payments on their credit cards will have a lot to consider as they seek out options. While they are in the process of straightening out their finances, a frequent concern is that there will be a series of phone calls, letters and emails trying to collect on the debt. After a certain period, many companies will sell the debt to a third party. That third party will then try to collect the debt. There are certain laws that these collectors must follow. Unfortunately, some flout these laws or push them to the brink and end up committing creditor harassment. Understanding what disclosures these collectors are required to provide is essential for the debtor to avoid being harassed.
