    BK Law: Another Blow to Katrina Victims

    and the hits just keep on coming...

    Phew. Good thing Congre$$ didn't include any inconvenient waivers to the new BK law signed into law back in April and set to go into effect 17 October. The impoverished credit card cos. are starving and scrambling to make a buck, after all. Wouldn't want anything like a tsunami of medical bills from a catastrophic illness to impede on the flow of obscene profits, now, would we.

    According to whom? Contrary to popular sheeplethink, cr. cd. debt is not due to partying it up. Recheck your sources and determine who bought them off to pay for the perception that you have - Most debtors file BK b/c of medical bills from catastrophic illnesses, not because of allegations of fiscal irresponsibility. And anyway, so what if it is. Look at the federal govt. We're all drowning in an ocean of red ink b/c the pRezdint has us paying for 2 wars, 2 hurricane reconstructs and tax cuts for the mega-wealthy. Fiscal insolvency is the American way.

    I agree with you Izzo. People have been taking advantage of this far too long.

    But IMO, with a disaster like Katrina, they're should be some leniency to the law

    Oh man, don't even talk about it. I'm so afraid that I may end up claiming bankruptcy because of the surgical bills for my wife, that it's hard not to think about it and the procedures to go through.

    meh ..don't worry about it ...if you wait until after Oct17th ...you'll have more paperwork to fill out and more hoops to jump through ...for example ..your attorney has to 'certify' that there is no abuse taking place--meaning you're not hiding money away--and it will get more expensive to file and some debts won't be so easily dishcharged ... consult an attorney would be my recommendation

    I'm hoping I don't have to take that step. I owe no one anything except for that hospital. Seems like a pretty dumb reason to claim bankruptcy under the circumstance, but it depends largely on how bad they want to push for their money. What they want each month and what we can afford to give are two entirely different things.

    they can be aggressive ...try and be proactive in establishing arrangments but don't give out too much info ...document everything you can and if possible ...and if you have the resources see if they will settle for a discounted lump sum of money ...

    Aside from being part of a BK filing, what, exactly, does a 341 hrg have to do with the topic of this thread, exactly? What does your personal bankruptcy filing have to do with a hurricane victim and/or catastrophic illness as it relates to the new BK law? If there aren't any other BK trivia questions you picked up from Court TV, then how about staying on topic now.

    Apparently staying on topic of any given thread is a foreign concept to you geniuses and ad hominem attacks are what passes for discussion, particularly when you can't think of anything else witty/intelligent to say. You people deserve each other.
