Even Florida Representatives are Feeling the Stress of Personal Debts

By Leavengood, Nash, Dauval & Boyle, P.A.  Jun. 21, 2013 4:25p

As Americans continue to struggle with underwater mortgages, high credit card balances, student loans and other personal debt, it is become more and more clear that no one is exempt from these stresses—including our lawmakers. St. Petersburg's Darryl Rouson (Fl. Representative-Democrat) is a prime example. His financial woes include a fairly recent bankruptcy, delinquent property taxes, personal loans and others. He reportedly declared bankruptcy in 2002 and some are suspicious that another bankruptcy may be inevitable for the man who has been a member of the Florida House of Representatives since 2008. He has been earning a reported $565,000 a year with a law firm which he has now left so some are wondering how he is going to handle back owed property taxes totaling $90,000 and $20,000 he owes to a family member. Rouson himself has not made any statements concerning financial difficulties. There are many options available to those who wish to resolve overwhelming debt and a bankruptcy lawyer may be able to help you with your specific circumstances.

Are you considering filing for bankruptcy protection?

The decision to file for personal bankruptcy protection under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 should only come after careful consideration. Having the help of a legal professional at this stage is vital for ensuring that you are aware of all specifics of the bankruptcy process, the pros, the cons and the requirements so you qualify for protection in the first place. If you do not qualify for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy then a knowledgeable attorney can still help you with other options. If you are weighed down by a mountain of debt that you have no hope of getting out from under then it is important to know that there are options out there for debt relief and debt settlement. Dealing with liens, creditor harassment and daily collection notices may make you feel that you won't be on solid financial ground for many years but a bankruptcy lawyer may be able to get creditors off your back almost immediately. Help is available!
