I am a victim of corporate downsizing and poor planning on my own part. In spite of that, I was able to find a way to keep my home from going into foreclosure using a home loan modification program, and you can too! It wasn't that I was living above my means, but I just had not been able to save enough to tide me over when the layoff came. I was struggling just to keep the minimum paid on my credit cards, car note, and regular bills, and my house was close to foreclosure. Fortunately, I learned that to make the payments on my home, affordable modification of my loan was the answer.

It wasn't long ago a friend of mine had found himself in a desperate situation. His credit was on the verge of being ruined. Well, to be honest it was basically nil, but he was an honest man and his intentions were to make right on some of the financial decisions he had made in the past that didn't work out. His creditors didn't care so much about his nobility though, they just wanted what was owed, and unlike a loan from a friend or family member, due dates are usually final, and repercussions begin immediately when the agreements are not met. Well I had experienced some credit difficulties of my own at various points in my life much like the rest of us. I had become fairly astute at seeking out professional advice and suggested he do the same. However, I learned quickly from speaking with him that I was never in the kind of financial debt he was currently in. It was going to take the help of some legitimate credit repair companies to dig this poor guy out from underneath theRead More »from Need a Credit Report Company?
I live in the city by myself, and have a family living next door to me who's son I often baby sit for when they need a few hours out in the evening on occasion. I adore the little guy and though I never wanted children of my own, I have to say I enjoy sitting down and helping him with his homework or watching a ball game. He's just around the age where he will be going to high school in a year or so, and the world will continue to get bigger with cell phones, cars, girls, and yes credit cards. When you talk to kids about the economy and credit crisis this, or debt crisis that, their eyes glaze over. He openly dreads if I flip to CNN during a break from the game, so I don't spend too much time talking about the "real" world with him. I'll leave that up to his parents. But recently some scary stuff happened to him involving things previously mentioned. How might a child be at risk of being in a debt crisis before they've even owned a credit card?

Applying for a Loan
It may seem like a good idea to pay off your debt with loans, but there are some things you need to keep in mind before you make a final decision.

Protect Yourself from Credit Card Fraud
Have you ever been a credit card fraud victim? Consider yourself lucky if you haven't! It doesn't have to been something big, but it's still inconvenient.

I don't even visit those sites, but it somehow made it to my credit card. The only thing that really saved me was the charge was generated during a time when I wasn't on the computer and was able to prove it to my card issuer. This saved me from a long and drawn out investigation.Read More »from How to Avoid Becoming a Credit Card Fraud Victim

There are specific needs men have that may not necessarily match those women need. This is also the reason it may be necessary for men to choose a lawyer with that specific area of expertise.
Divorce Planning for Men
Men are no less important in divorce than women, but their needs are somewhat different. Learning how to plan a divorce for men is something that will make things somewhat easier because you will have "all your ducks in a row" so to speak by the time you make an appointment with the lawyer.

While under age drunk driving is a serious problem it should not undermine the severity of drunk driving as a whole. Drivers on an overall scale need to learn the importance of avoiding combining drinking and driving because they just don't mix well together, and just like Hurricane Sandy the combination can cause widespread devastation.
Recognizing Your Limits
One of the most important things drivers need to learn is recognizing when they are too drunk to drive. My cousin used to tell me he could drive better when he was drinking because he knew he had to be more cognizant of what he was doing. I told him he would find out one day just how wrong he was, and unfortunately he did one night when he was driving home and ran his far off the road into a ditch! Fortunately he wasn't seriously injured, but he lost his license for a year and not only paid a huge fine for the offense but also to get his license back. When I visited him after the accident, the first thing he said toRead More »from Become Informed About Drunk Driving Laws in Your State
