Mary, Gail, and Ms ReeseThis time of year, the added expenses of back to school expenses can really hurt our clients.  The supply lists seem to get longer and longer with paper products in addition to the notebooks, pencils and paper we expect every year.  This year, as a community outreach, our office “adopted” a second grade class at Highland Avenue Elementary School.  When we told Ms. Reese-Holley that we selected her class to purchase the supplies for all twenty-eight kids in her class this year, she was in complete shock.   She told us that in all her years of teaching, no one had ever done anything like that for her or her class.  We were so happy to help her and her students this year get off to a great start! We hope lots of learning and happy memories are created in her class.

If back to school has you in a bind, please contact one of our Bond & Botes offices to see if we can help you.

What was omitted from bankruptcy schedules

In my bankruptcy alphabet, L is for the Life you can get back when you get rid of your debts.

My clients are often simply consumed by managing their debts.

There is no room for rest, savings, dreaming.

Life has become the struggle to make the next round of payments.

L could also be for Lift, the lifting of a weight that many don’t realize they are carrying around until they know that most debts can be discharged.

Federal Courthouse, Omaha, Nebraska

By Donald L. Swanson

It’s January 2011. I’m sitting in a conference room at the Federal Courthouse in Omaha (the building is new and beautiful; you should visit it sometime). It’s a “brown-bag luncheon” for the local bankruptcy bench and bar. We’re on the last agenda item (open forum), and the judge asks for input. Having recently completed a couple of state court meditations, I raise my hand and say, “What about using meditations in bankruptcy?” Next thing that happens: I’m chair of the Nebraska Bankruptcy Court Mediation Committee.

With more and more millennials putting off buying a house due to mounting debts and rising home costs, real estate agents and home improvement retailers are devising new strategies for targeting this shrinking segment of the home buying market.

What many have found is that millennials have different tastes and priorities when it comes to the kind of properties they are interested in. For instance, a lot of millennials are concerned about their impact on the environment and desire energy-efficient homes that utilize smart technologies.

Additionally, many millennials seem to have a desire to stand out with their home purchases, to infuse their homes with personality. In other words: some potential entrants into the real estate market may be delaying their entrance into the real estate market because they are particularly picky about the kind of house they want to live in. This is especially true of older millennials, according to a recent study conducted by Home Depot.
