        Structured dismissals have become an attractive option for debtors in recent years.  The outcome of a case pending before the Supreme Court, however, may halt that trend. 

         On December 7, 2016, the United States Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Czyzewski v. Jevic Holding Corp.[1] to decide if a bankruptcy court can approve settlements that contravene the Bankruptcy Code’s priority scheme in section 507, so long as the court finds that no creditor would be better off under any available alternative (even though some creditors would fare better under the otherwise non-compliant settlement).

Gail DonaldsonHyundai is one of Montgomery’s biggest employers where more than 3,000 team members are employed with high-paying jobs and full benefits. Additionally, more than 35 tier one suppliers are located in seventeen counties across Alabama.  Further there are 78 total suppliers located throughout North America to support the Hyundai plant. Altogether, these suppliers created 7,000 additional jobs by Alabama based suppliers according to Hyundai’s website.

President Trump’s campaign made threats to trash the North American Free Trade Agreement or impose stiff import tariffs to keep more jobs at home. Mexico is attractive to the automotive industry due to low operating costs and a large number of free trade agreements. Alabama imports car parts from Mexico and if there was a tariff, the amount could add millions to costs which could be passed on to the consumer.  According the U.S. Commerce Department, auto parts is the single largest product imported from Mexico with about $51.6 billion through November, 2016 and accounted for about 19% of all products shipped from Mexico.  No one knows whether Congress will go along with a tariff on Mexican goods, or whether President Trump will keep his campaign position.

It can be difficult to come to terms with the harsh reality of having to file for bankruptcy. However, you are not alone if you find yourself faced with such a challenging decision. According to data from U.S. bankruptcy courts, over 1.5 million people file for bankruptcy annually. And almost 97 percent of bankruptcy filings are made by individuals, and not businesses.

Following are some of the top reasons that people file for bankruptcy:

Medical expenses

A Harvard University study indicated that medical expenses are the reason for 62 percent of personal bankruptcies in the U.S. It is interesting to note that the study also revealed that 72 percent of those who filed for bankruptcy because of medical bills had health insurance, thereby disproving the notion that only those who are uninsured confront financial disasters because of medical expenses. You can file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy to lower your medical debt.
