A repayment plan may help get you out of bankruptcy

New Jersey has a high cost of leaving compared to many other American states. It comes as no surprise then that people often find themselves with high-interest and long-term debt that they need to repay. These debts can spiral out of control, causing even financially responsible people to fall behind if they become ill, make a bad investment or have a break in employment.

The FDCPA gives you control over debt collection calls

Perhaps you lost your job, got divorced, or experienced a serious illness or injury. Maybe you got into a financial bind and continued to incur debt in order to keep your head above water, and over time, the situation got out of control. No matter how you ended up with an overwhelming amount of debt, the result is the same -- debt collectors are calling you constantly.

NJ homeowners still haunted by the past home foreclosure crisis

Foreclosure left an indelible mark on New Jersey residents. According to NPR, a decade after the housing crisis, “zombie houses” still remain. These are houses in the foreclosure process, or which have since been abandoned. In fact, NPR estimates that no state has as many of these houses remaining per capita as New Jersey. There were roughly 17,000 of these homes in the state.
