Common reasons older people file for bankruptcy

With increasing debt loads hitting today's senior Florida residents, many older Floridians are turning more and more to bankruptcy court to resolve their financial problems. According to a recent article by Forbes, there are a number of reasons senior Americans are looking to bankruptcy to help them out of fiscal trouble.

Can a creditor freeze your bank account?

It is very easy to get into debt in Florida. Anyone can overspend or over extend themselves. However, once your debt becomes problematic and you can no longer make your payments, some creditors may take drastic steps. You may be concerned about the security of your bank accounts in such a situation. Typically, for secured debts, you do not have much to worry about because they take whatever it is that secured the loan, such as your home or car. However, for unsecured debts, creditors may very well go after your bank accounts.

What you need to know about 0-interest credit cards

If you are like many Floridians, you have probably received an offer in the mail for a 0-interest credit card, and you may have found that offer appealing. Before you sign on the dotted line, however, keep in mind that credit card companies are there to make a buck, and they rarely act in a customer's best interest. At the law office of Kingcade Garcia McMaken, we have a firm understanding of how credit card companies operate, and we have assisted many clients who have fallen behind on their credit card payments or otherwise found themselves facing seemingly insurmountable debt.

How can you stop creditors from harassing you?

Florida residents struggling with debt will also commonly find themselves struggling against the harsh and unrelenting harassment of creditors. Unfortunately, the threats that collection agencies make toward you can be endless and frightening, especially since they can easily carry said threats out. Here at Kingcade & Garcia, PA, we want to provide you with all the information possible so that you can stop this harassment in its tracks.

What credit card options are available to college students?

It may seem hard to believe, but over the next month, parents with college-aged children will soon be seeing them packing up their rooms, loading their cars and heading back to campus for the start of the fall semester. This means that the weeks ahead will be filled with seemingly innumerable shopping trips and other preparations designed to facilitate both a comfortable existence and, more significantly, academic success.  

Why missing paperwork may eliminate billions in private student loans

Looking back, one of the more shocking aspects of the not-so-distant subprime mortgage crisis was that billions of dollars in loans were ultimately thrown out by courts in collection actions owing to the fact that lenders simply couldn't provide the necessary documentation.

Is it time to say goodbye to some of those credit cards?

Chances are good the last time you bought anything -- from that tank of gas on the way home yesterday to that cup of coffee on your way into work this morning -- you paid for it with a credit card. Chances are also good that you had multiple card options from which to choose, perhaps combing through your wallet to find some preferred plastic.

Experts remind college grads to be proactive about student loans

It's a truly exciting time of the year for young people throughout Florida and across the nation. That's because many will be -- or perhaps already have -- marched across a stage to receive their college diploma, the culmination of years of hard work and, for many, a major financial commitment.

How consumers can put auto loans in the rearview mirror

According to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the total amount of household debt here in the U.S. at the end of 2016 was $12.58 trillion. If this seem like an incomprehensible number, consider that just last week this same branch of the Federal Reserve released a report indicating that this number grew to $12.7 trillion during the first three months of 2017, surpassing 2008's pre-recession levels.
