Credit card debt increased in the U.S. last year

Posted on March 30th, 2015 No Comments

A recent survey observed that credit card debt in the U.S. ballooned in 2014, and it may continue to increase this year by five percent, a March 10 article of CBS stated.

CardHub said American households in 2014 were left with $57.1 billion in credit card debt and it is expected to increase to $60 billion. The credit card debt average in 2014 reportedly left most households struck with debt balance ranging from $7,200 to $8,300, yet most family’s total income has only increased by 2 percent in the last decade. This shows that, though the economy as a whole has improved since the recession, CardHub is still seeing individuals relying on their credit cards for personal reasons or out of necessity.

Homes with bigger mortgages experience increased foreclosure

Posted on March 16th, 2015 No Comments

Though the U.S. housing market is continuing to recover from a foreclosure crisis, recent data from CoreLogic revealed that foreclosures of wealthier homes have increased, The Wall Street Journal stated on March 5.

According to the data, as the national foreclosure rate at the end of 2014 has been reduced to 1.4 percent, foreclosure rates have increased by 2.5 percent on homes with a mortgage of $750,000 or more. The trend reportedly started in 2008 as nationwide foreclosure rates continued to increase. Deputy Chief Economist of CoreLogic Sam Khater explained that wealthy homeowners were badly affected by the crashing stock market. Another factor, according to Khater, is that many upscale homes are situated in states with a prolonged foreclosure process.

In this difficult situation in which your home is being threatened with foreclosure, working with an experienced lawyer could be critical to defending your home.

Tips on recovering from foreclosure

Posted on February 3rd, 2015 No Comments

Fox News offered some tips on January 23 about how to recover after experiencing the stressful process of foreclosure.

• After a foreclosure, people may initially improve their credit by using it responsibly enough to impress potential lenders. Homeowners with high credit scores before foreclosure may struggle more to get their credit back to their previous point. Despite this, it is important to continue using credit, as regular, responsible activity is crucial for potential lenders.

• People who lost their homes to foreclosure should dutifully settle their tax bills. The government may not require people to settle their foreclosure taxes if they declare insolvency or file for bankruptcy.

• After a foreclosure, homeowners may need to wait for several years to possibly get a new loan. However, if a family member died or a sudden job loss contributed to the foreclosure, people may not need to wait as long.

The attorneys at Ryan J. Ruehle Attorney at Law, LLC, understand that many homeowners in Cincinnati are being threatened by foreclosure. If you are experiencing this, we may give you legal advice that could save your home. Find out how we may work for you today by calling (513) 621-0999.

Senator proposes bill for employees to get cash advance

Posted on January 21st, 2015 No Comments

U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown recently proposed a bill to help millions of Americans avoid the high interest rates of payday loans, WSPD reported on January 19.

In the proposed bill, employees who qualified for Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) may be given advance cash by their employers. After qualified employees get their advance cash, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will repay the employers, and that money would later be deducted from the employees’ tax return. According to Sen. Brown, workers with children could take out as much as $500, while those without immediate dependents may qualify to receive $133. The senator further said that his bill would provide an alternative to payday loans for millions of hardworking people, potentially allowing them to avoid significant debts that accrue from the high interest rates of these predatory loan services.

The lawyers of Ryan J. Ruehle Attorney at Law, LLC, know that many people in Cincinnati are experiencing financial difficulties after feeling trapped by their payday loan debts. If this happens to you, we may be able to offer you legal solutions to help you recover from this stressful situation.
