How bankruptcy can help resolve vehicle debt issues

Failing to make a car payment on time could result in an individual's vehicle being repossessed. However, lenders in Virginia and throughout the country don't want to see that happen. Usually, it is more expensive to repossess a car as opposed to working out a new payment plan. They will generally work with those who reach out to them in a timely manner. Car owners can also look to refinance their vehicles in an effort to create favorable payment terms.

How parents may conceal some trust information from children

Virginia and many other states have adopted a version of the Uniform Trust Code. This law establishes certain obligations toward trust beneficiaries, requiring that they get the necessary information about the trust to protect themselves. However, for various reasons, some parents do not want their children to know very much about their trusts. Depending on what kind of information the parents want to conceal or how they want the trust administered, the solution might be to establish the trust in another state. Trusts that conceal a significant amount of information from the beneficiary are called "silent trusts".

Medical debt continues to soar

Statistics show that the U.S. spends more on health care per capita than any other country. However, not all of this is government spending. Many Virginia residents carry a heavy burden of medical bills. This has resulted in an ever increasing inability to pay for out-of-pocket costs associated with expensive medical necessities.
