Bradley D. McCormack Helps Client Discharge $19,000 in Debt by Winning Adversary Proceeding

One of our attorneys, Bradley D. McCormack, recently helped a client discharge thousands of dollars in debt during a complicated Chapter 7 bankruptcy case. After our client had filed his bankruptcy paperwork, his ex-girlfriend alleged that he owed her $19,000 in personal loans. She had objected to the discharge of this debt, claiming our client had made omissions and misrepresentations on his bankruptcy disclosure forms.

Withdraw EFT Authorizations By, Stewart Bogart

EFT stands for Electronic Fund Transfer. This is basically a system where funds from a bank account can be automatically transferred to pay another party. Many payday loan and short term loan companies require the customer, as a condition of the loan, to set up an automatic transfer of funds from the customer’s bank account to the lender. It is important that the borrower understand that they do not have to continue to allow the lender to withdraw money from their account. Especially if the borrower is thinking of filing bankruptcy. These loans are typically unsecured debt, meaning they can be discharged in a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Therefore, if the borrower is going to file and eventually get these loans discharged, it makes no sense to continue to allow the lender to take money from their bank account. Additionally, if you need the money to pay utilities…
