Want to Know Who You Owe?

It's actually quite easy to find out who you owe money to -- and it could be creditors or collecetions agencies that you've forgotten about, never heard of, or who should have been removed from your credit report because you resolved the debt.

Tom McAvity recommends pulling a yearly credit report from all three credit bureaus. You are entitled to these credit reports free of charge under the Under the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act.

If you are ready to file for bankruptcy in Salem, Oregon or Vancouver, Washington, Tom McAvity and the legal team at the Northwest Debt Relief Law Firm (NWDRLF) are happy to assist you with everything you'll need to get started. They offer a free initial consultation and legal support that is second to none. You'll need help understanding how to do your pre-bankruptcy "homework" so that filing bankruptcy in Portland or Salem, Oregon can be done efficiently and accurately.

NWDRLF and Tom McAvity offer 24 hour support in the form of an Internet portal where you can log in and check on your personal bankruptcy status any time, day or night.

So get started. Get your free credit report from and get a feel for the ins and outs of your credit score and credit history. Once you've done this you'll have a much clearer idea of what you're up against, who you owe, and who you may have to file disputes with. It's fast, easy, and worth doing at least once every twelve months. Checking your credit report and score is like having a physical exam -- if you don't go to the doctor there's no way to know for sure exactly how healthy you are. Check your credit, and file for bankruptcy if you need to -- get more information on exactly how to do this by contacting NWDRLF at 1-866-601-1918.

Welcome to Tom McAvity's Bankruptcy Blog

We all know that bankruptcies are at all time highs in the nation right now because of the subprime crisis and the subsequent foreclosure crisis that still plagues the nation. Most of us also know there's a lot more going on behind the scenes than that.

What Tom McAvity hopes to achieve with this blog is to impart some inside information about bankruptcy and how yes, it is a good thing for the people who need real relief. Predatory lending practices, subprime and ARM mortgages are just the big issues that pose(d) clear and present danger for American consumers. There's much more to this puzzle than what can be simply stated, and perhaps that's the reason for so many bankruptcy FAQs all over the net, the constant discussion of bankruptcy in the news, and the constant chatter on every street corner; I was laid off, my husband was laid off, we can't keep up with our mortgage, I'm spending my retirement and my child's college fund to keep up with house payments.

Tom McAvity has a sincere desire to help residents of Portland and Salem, Oregon, as well as residents of Vancouver, Washington, face their fear of financial hardship with the antidote of Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.

It's not the end of the world. What really could be the end of the world would be consumers who really need to file for bankruptcy not doing so. Americans have a right to protection in the realm of finances. Given the harsh economic climate and the fact that many homeowners fell into mortgages that seemed great in the early 2000s but have turned out to put them in a horrible financial bind in the late 2000s, bankruptcy should not be the Scarlet Letter. Americans need to know that the truth about bankruptcy is hope for a future.

Thomas McAvity is a seasoned bankruptcy attorney serving Oregon and Washington states. More posts to come as we learn more everyday about what bankruptcy can do for those who need debt relief so badly.
