Rhode Island Military Bankruptcy

We appreciate all the sacrifices you have made for our country. If you are presently serving in the military and you are struggling financially, trust your bankruptcy matter to Janet J. Goldman. Since 1989, Attorney Goldman has been assisting members of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. She has a full understanding of the unique issues facing active duty military personnel and veterans.

Bankruptcy laws can help all citizens of the United States resolve their debts and regain control of their finances, but military personnel are entitled to some additional protections.

Collection Activities: While you are on active duty the Soldiers and Relief Act protects you from collection activities by creditors. The Act prevents creditors from pursuing any type of litigation, while you are deployed and unable to respond.

Relocation Costs: If you have relocated from another state, you may have incurred many unexpected expenses. Many of the debts are dischargeable. Your must have established residency in Rhode Island for at least 180 days in order to qualify.

Military Pension: Your Military Pension is fully protected when you elect to file for bankruptcy relief either under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 regardless of your active duty of veteran status.

Income Testing: Active duty military personnel are not subjected to income or means testing in order to qualify for either Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Military Star Credit Card Debt: Unsecured debt, including debt accrued on Military Star credit cards are dischargeable upon completion of Chapter 7 bankruptcy or Chapter 13 bankruptcy proceedings.
