Consumer Commission – Student Loan Proposals (Part II)

[ad_1] Photo: Nina Konstantinidou Last week, we outlined the ABI Commission on Consumer Bankruptcy’s proposals to improve the fresh start in bankruptcy by expanding the discharge of more student loans.  But the Commission recommended Congress make other changes to help people burdened with student loan debt.

It’s important to let those victims know though that there is support out there. By allowing an abusive relationship to continue, you could be putting yourself and your family in an even worse position. When victims opt to not ask for help, it not only puts them in...

What You Need To Know About First- and Second-Year Home Expenses

[ad_1] My husband and I were so excited to buy our house. We’d been renting since college and were eager to have our own place. Finally, no one could tell us how many dogs we could have or how many posters we could hang up. Once we moved into our home, we quickly realized how much we didn’t know. We didn’t know how to make basic repairs or know what kind of contractor to call. We also didn’t know how expensive home buying could be. Even now that we’ve been in our house for a year, we’re still surprised at how much...
