Unsecured Personal Loans

A personal loan is a popular way to consolidate debt, or to pay for expenditures you didn't plan for like taxes, education expenses, medical bills, a wedding, home improvement bills, moving costs, and anything that life seems to have a way of throwing at us when we least expect it!

The advantages of an unsecured personal loan? There are many. First, there are different loans available to those with great credit as well as those with bad credit. And of course, the interest rate you will pay may depend in part on your credit rating. The better your credit score, the easier it may be to get a better interest rate. But don't quit if your credit is below perfect: there can still be many loans available.

San Diego Bankruptcy Attorney

A typical bankruptcy candidate is a person who is already in fragile financial circumstances, often with great amounts of consumer debt, who then all of sudden faces a period of hard luck (loss of job, injury, divorce, uninsured medical expenses), which results in mounting payment penalties and an unpayable mountain of debt.
Bankruptcy law is created to help people who find themselves in this situation, who need assistance in making an escape from the walls of debt -- a "fresh start" on life, rather than spend the rest of their lives being crushed by the burden of unpayable debt.

Loan Forgiveness

When one's student loan debt isn't managable and exedes one's income, it may cause the loan barrower to abandon the prospects of a career in a low-paying profession. For instance, a public defender or prosecutor can have more than $100k in law school debt, but a greatly lower beginning salary, yielding a debt-to-income ratio of 2:1 or more.

Loan forgiveness that requires the borrower to work in a particular occupation is tax-free under the current federal laws. Other types of debt forgiveness are treated as your income to the borrower, leading to what may be considered as a tax liability.

Perkins Loan

The Federal Perkins Loan Program provides students with low interest loans to help low income students to finance the costs of higher education. Students who attend any of the approximately 1,700 participating postsecondary schools may obtain Perkins loans from the institution.

The school's Perkins loan fund is maintained by ongoing functions, such as a collection by the institution on the outstanding Perkins loans performed by the school and multiple reimbursements from the department for the cost of certain statutory loan cancellation provisions.

Bankruptcy San Diego

There are 2 main types of bankruptcy for consumers:
Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows someone to eliminate the most unsecured debts in a matter of just a few months in return for giving up all of their "non-exempt" property.
Most people in debt who file for Chapter 7 may not be available to pay off unsecured debt creditors.
This is known as "no asset" bankruptcy, and most Chapter 7 bankruptcy are of this type.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy takes about 3 to 5 years. Rather than giving up property that you own, you may choose to repay a portion of your debts and live within a budget that is kept monitored closely by a bankruptcy court trustee. If you don't think you can manage required monthly payments, your Chapter 13 bankruptcy fails and your debt will remain (unless you convert to a Chapter 7 bankruptcy).

Client Testimonial

To whom it may concern,
Mr. Rausa is extremely knowledgeable with the complexities of Federal Student Loans.
I went from a thriving career to full medical disability, ending with an SSDI placement. Unfortunately, I lost everything and became unable to continue making the student loan payments, so it was in deferment for over five years. When the SSDI settled I tried to negotiate an affordable payment plan with the loan holders but they refused my efforts, instead demanding over twice the amount I could afford.
I contacted Mr. Rausa and found him to be courteous, responsive and quick to assess my situation. He was sure he could help and took time to answer all questions, which relieved much anxiety. Within months he successfully resolved the debt! With much confidence, I highly recommend Mr. Rausa.
Please contact me if you have any additional questions.
Sincerely,
