Some of my potential clients have been expressing hope that Congress would deliver substantial relief that would allow them to stave off bankruptcy. Unfortunately, it appears that the current relief bill will only offer minimal help for individuals. The most relevant provisions for my clients are the $600 direct relief payment and the $300 increase in weekly unemployment benefits. Both of these figures are half of what the prior COVID bill provided.
As this terrible year comes to a close, many have tough decisions to make. Clearly, Congress is not going to provide meaningful assistance to individuals. If you are struggling to deal with your debt, now may be the best time to review your bankruptcy options. I am available during and after the holiday season via phone and email to assist you.
