Consumer debt to hit $4 trillion

According to statistics posted by Yahoo! Finance, consumer debt has increased since 2013 by more than $1 trillion. Total consumer debt in Virginia and across the U.S. is expected to reach $4 trillion before the end of 2018. The total debt numbers break down into $1.04 trillion in credit card or revolving debt and non-revolving debt of $2.9 trillion. Non-revolving debt includes debt tied to auto loans and student loans. Mortgage debt is not included in consumer debt figures.

Filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy for a second time

Those who are struggling to repay their debts may want to file for bankruptcy protection. However, there are certain criteria that must be met to do so. For instance, those who have filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection in the past must wait eight years to file another such case. To convert a Chapter 7 case to a Chapter 13 case, four years must have passed from the date in which the Chapter 7 case was filed.
