Not every Chapter 7 bankruptcy ends with a discharge

Overwhelming debt can be a major source of stress and frustration for Texas residents. Many of them turn to Chapter 7 bankruptcy for relief from these obligations, and look forward to the day when they receive their discharge and get to move forward with a fresh financial start. However, if filers are not careful, their cases could result in a dismissal instead of a discharge.

Was the amount of medical debt a surprise after a hospital visit?

JAMA Internal Medicine recently published the findings of a study conducted between 2010 and 2016 by researchers at Stanford University. It took years thereafter to compile the data. What it discovered is that the number of patients being surprised by large amounts of medical debt rose dramatically. People here in Texas more than likely discovered the same thing, but they may think it is just the rising cost of health care, but it may be more than that.

That morning coffee isn't your biggest source of credit card debt
