What are today’s most common types of debt?

If you can spend money, you can get into debt. However, not all forms of debt are the same. Some are the result of an unforeseeable emergency, while others stem from unwise spending and charging habits. Some debts can be discharged through personal bankruptcy, and other types are non-dischargeable. You may want to consider filing bankruptcy for certain types of crippling debt, while it may be smarter to restructure and repay other debts. It can help you and other New York residents to make informed decisions before making a decision regarding your debt.

This can quickly snowball from an occasional charge to reliance on using your cards until the balances become too much to handle. When your credit card debt gets out of control, you have to take steps to avoid a serious financial issue.
