Debtor's Prison in the US? Maybe, if you are not paying your student loans!

We have always thought that there is no such thing as a Debtor's Prison in the USA. People with bad debt are not treated as criminals unless the debt itself is the result of specific forms of criminal activity. Well, that may not be the case. In today's financial news, Bloomberg discusses a recent case where the Department of Justice arrested a man for a 29-year-old unpaid student loan debt.

5 Must Have's in a Bankruptcy Attorney 

Perhaps oversimplifying, but this is a good article to guide anyone who is in need of assistance in a bankruptcy case.  I like it because it highlights some of the things I really stress: (1)  only hire someone you feel comfortable working with (2) avoid "mills" where you will be treated like a number; and (3) hire a real bankruptcy attorney, not a general practitioner that just does bankruptcy from time-to-time.  Bankruptcy is a complex area of law and you need counsel that knows their way around the Bankruptcy Code

Do you have a "20 Days" claim for goods sold to a debtor? Read this article to find out what your rights may be! 

"Don't Reclaim! Get Paid on Your 20 Day Claim!"

Have a claim for goods sold to a debtor just before bankruptcy was filed? This article may interest you! Often business people are aware that they can file a motion to reclaim goods that wer e shipped to a debtor shortly before the debtor filed a chapter 7 or a chaoter 11 bankruptcy petition. But did you know you can file a motion to get paid... 100% of your claim on an admistrative priority basis? That's right. If the debtor sells your goods while the debtor is in bankruptcy you can get a special super-priority claim and get paid 100 cents on the dollar... not share pro rata with all the rest of the creditors! So why take back the goods when you can get paid instead! That's really what you wanted in the first place, right?
