Bankruptcy success stories: Carol from Louisiana


By obtaining Minnesota bankruptcy information from a reputable source, you can be confident you’re taking the right steps toward a debt-free future.


In recent articles, we've been profiling some of the many Americans who are able to overcome short-term and long-time financial issues with the help of Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy filings. For today's piece, we'd like to bring your attention to Carol, a mother from Louisiana who was able to keep her sick son with the help of court protection.

Carol's story began when her son was 15 years old. At that time, he was in need of extensive medical treatment, but Carol was unable to get these costs covered by her insurance provider. Despite this, she kept looking for a solution, searching for alternative treatment options and spending a substantial amount of time on the road and the phone to do so.

“A doctor told me at one point we could not afford his care and the insurance would not pay for it. Her solution was to give up custody of our child to the state so he could receive the care he needed,” Carol told USA Bankruptcy Guide, which profiled her story.

Carol eventually began to rack up debt, from both the medical payments and phone bills, which she says routinely climbed as high as $300 to $500 a month. This all changed, however, when her daughter, who was working for an attorney, encouraged her to file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

According to Carol, her relief in finding a solution was beyond words. In bankruptcy, she found a way to wipe the slate clean so that she could get out of debt while providing her son the care he needed.
