Recent tough economic times have resulted in many Americans facing severe financial distress. The inability to pay your financial obligations, otherwise known as insolvency, can come about from losing your job, having your hours or wages reduced, through a debilitating illness or injury which has resulted in a loss of income and / or significant medical expenses, through a costly divorce, loss of investments, business failure, or merely through financial mistakes and mismanagement. Whatever the circumstances, overwhelming debt is an unpleasant, stressful, and often confusing situation. You may be subjected to creditor and collection agency harassment, lawsuits, wage garnishment, repossession actions, or foreclosure proceedings.
