Should You Dump Your Credit Card Debt Through Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?
Reducing credit limits for consumers is the first of a one-two punch being broadly applied by large credit card issuers.  The reduced credit limit is quickly followed by a huge increase in the interest rate of the credit account.  The bank who reduced the credit line thereby placing that consumer in a higher risk category (through no fault of the consumer's) now demands higher interest payments.


Exemptions

Bankruptcy exemptions are extremely important when filing for financial insolvency and you must understand what the term means.  A very simple definition is that the, individual or business entities, may list certain assets (as determined by law) to be protected from seizure by the creditors. A more precise definition is provided below.
