Don't rush to bankruptcy without getting advice

If you were extra generous over the holidays and had to skip a credit card payment, you may feel terrible. On the other hand, you may be going through a slowdown at work that has caused your paycheck to be temporarily smaller until the warm weather returns. While these and other scenarios may set you behind on your bills and debts, they may not be adequate reasons to file for bankruptcy.

An estate plan isn't complete without a health care directive

Although addressing one's mortality through estate planning could be uncomfortable, it is important for anyone who wants control over what happens to their body as well as their assets immediately before and after their death. Most people know they need a will and possibly a trust to provide guidance about their assets but many Virginians don't understand the importance of a health care directive.

How to keep medical debt under control

Medical debt is often cited as a reason why people in Virginia and other states file for bankruptcy. While it might not be possible to predict when a health issue will arise, it may be possible to manage medical debt. Ideally, individuals will take time to read and understand their health insurance policies. In some cases, it will be necessary to obtain approval before seeing a specialist or having a procedure done.
