Choosing the Right Financial Advisor


There are many considerations when choosing a financial advisor or even whether to choose one. While the value of working with a financial advisor varies, keep in mind that average additional investment returns can range from 1.5% to 4% more each year when working with a financial advisor. People who work with financial advisors report greater financial security, confidence and clarity than those who don't.

Streamlined Chapter 11 for Small Businesses


In this time of economic upheaval and distress more businesses are looking at reorganizing. Subchapter V of Chapter 11 offers a streamlined process for small businesses going through bankruptcy. Simplifying the process means that filing under Subchapter V significantly reduces the time and money typical bankruptcy takes, making it more accessible to more businesses. Under Subchapter V, currently, businesses with up to $7.5 million in debt can be eligible. The threshold was raised to $7.5 million for one year as part of the CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act from $2.7 million.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy


Chapter 13 is one type of bankruptcy for individuals. This form of bankruptcy focuses on the reorganization of one's finances for individuals with regular income. It is also known as a wage earner's plan. Debtors develop a monthly payment plan to their creditors for a three to five-year period. Creditors may not start or continue with collection efforts during this time. Chapter 13 is valuable for those who are unable to make immediate payments to their creditors but have income.
