your debt and the holidays 2017.jpgHas your debt landed you on the naughty list this year?

It’s that time of year when Santa is making his annual inventory of all the good and bad Minnesotans. But Santa isn’t alone: many Minnesota families are also taking a good hard look at their finances and wondering how much crunch they will feel once their credit card statements come in January. According to a recent report, the average American family spent almost $1,000 on just gifts during the 2016 holiday season and the projected expense of the 2017 season is expected to be even higher. For Minnesota families that are already struggling financially, the added cost of the holidays can turn a bad situation into a dire one.

Whether you have a couple thousand dollars in debt or hundreds of thousands in debt, the stress of owing money to creditors can take a toll on your emotional, and even physical, health. Between constant calls from creditors demanding payment and fear of foreclosure, wage garnishment, and repossession, having large amounts of debt you can’t pay can cause a significant negative impact on your family’s well-being.

There are many reasons people accumulate debt. Sometimes, it’s a simple case of making poor financial decisions. Most of the time, however, families accumulate debt because of unexpected circumstances, like serious illness, loss of employment, economic downturn, divorce, or even a death in the family.

Whatever the reason for your family’s debt, you can put your past debt behind you this holiday season by eliminating your unsecured debt with Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Chapter 7 vs. Chapter 13 bankruptcy

Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows you to erase your unsecured debt after liquidation of your assets. For families who can’t afford a repayment plan and don’t have big-ticket items they want to keep, Chapter 7 bankruptcy can give your family a fresh start by wiping your debt clean.

For working families that can afford partial repayment of their debts, Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to make affordable payments for a period of 3 to 5 years on your unsecured debt; after successful completion of your repayment period, your remaining debt will be discharged. With Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you can keep your most expensive assets, like your house and car, while whittling away at your debt balance.
