Seeking a mortgage after bankruptcy: What you need to know

For many Americans, buying a house is a huge milestone in their adult lives. It is a milestone of their financial independence. A home is without a doubt one of the (if not THE) most expensive assets that someone will own in their lifetime.

Medical bills still the most common reason for bankruptcy

A visit to the doctor's office can be expensive. And yet, it is impossible for individuals to predict when they or a loved one will need medical care or suffer a medical emergency. Therefore, it is not easy for New Mexicans to plan for how they will pay for medical issues. 

Is your credit card spending leading to financial crisis?

Most people in New Mexico have credit cards, and there are many reasons why this type of debt accumulates. When you think about the amount of debt that people carry, you may assume that it's because of medical emergencies or other unexpected costs they could not pay for out of pocket. In reality, credit card debt is often the result of discretionary spending. 

What you should know about the bankruptcy trustee’s role in Chapter 7 cases

When someone files a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, a trustee is appointed to administer the bankruptcy estate. Understanding the chapter 7 trustee’s role in bankruptcy can help individuals prepare for the process and know what to expect.
