New Jersey Debtors' Rights and the Bankruptcy Attorney to Call

At the end of the day, a debt is just an agreement – backed by pages and pages of legalese, of course – to pay a certain amount of money to someone at a certain time for certain goods or services rendered. When you can’t repay a debt, however, that agreement can become mighty disagreeable … if not downright unbearable.

It doesn’t help that people who’ve racked up too much consumer debt are often also dealing with difficult life events at the same time – divorce, for instance, or job loss, the death of a loved one, serious health issues, or maybe having to close a business.

As bills pile up, collectors start calling, and court documents start rolling in, you may feel stressed, ashamed, powerless, and even doubtful of your own self-worth.

The thing is, debt needn’t consume you with fear, shame, or anxiety for even one second. You can do something about it – something positive. Because, even in debt, you do have rights.
