For many immigrants living in the United States, access to financial resources and services, such as savings and checking accounts, business loans, and home mortgages, is very difficult to acquire. Some of the reasons why immigrants have less access to financial institutions can be limited English language proficiency, lack of experience with American banking institutions, and the requirement for a Social Security Number.

In 2015, the United States legalized same-sex marriage in all 50 states with a historic Supreme Court ruling. Five years later, in May 2020, Costa Rica also legalized same-sex marriage, becoming the first Central American country to do so. However, there are many countries that do not recognize LGBTQ+ relationships, and even punish people for being openly part of the LGBTQ+ community.

The COVID-19 pandemic caused government services offices to shut or slow down much of their operations for months on end. Even as these offices have reopened and moved to hire more workers to help with the work backlog, the sheer number of immigration petitions have not stopped.

The Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) is a tax-processing number issued by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to ensure that anyone residing in the United States regardless of immigration status is able to pay taxes. The ITIN program was introduced in July 1996, and has allowed undocumented immigrants to pay billions in taxes annually for nearly 26 years. Undocumented immigrants pay more than $11 billion a year in state and local taxes, according to a 2017 Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy report. Research shows that if immigrants were granted a pathway to legal immigration status, the tax contribution would increase by $2.1 billion. 💸 But, what is the purpose of paying taxes? How can I request an ITIN from the IRS? What if I send money back to my home country –do I need to report that too?

Did you know that Bankrupcy had been around since the Medieval period? In fact, bankrupcy in the United States has been around since 1803. Throughout the ages, many people have used this powerful financial tool, from celebrities like Brendan Fraser, 50 Cent, Nicholas Cage and Mike Tyson, to American presidents like Abraham Lincoln and Donald Trump. Although bankruptcy is a great tool that can help anyone in the United States get a fresh financial start, it does have its limitations, such as with fraud.

Undergoing bankruptcy proceedings can be a very emotionally difficult situation, and adding a divorce on top of that does not make it any easier.
According to data from the United States Census Bureau, the average age for couples going through their first divorce is 30 years old. Moreover, nearly 50 percent of all marriages in the United States end in divorce or separation. In fact, every 42 seconds, there is one divorce in the US. A survey from the US Census Bureau also found that the top three reasons for divorces are incompatibility (43%), infidelity (28%), and money issues (22%).

It is estimated that 9 percent of adults, or nearly 23 million Americans, have some form of medical debt, ranging from $250 to $2,000. 1 percent of Americans owe more than $10,000, according to government data. In 2019, it is estimated that the collective American medical debt totaled out to at least $195 billion.

1 in 8 Americans have student loan debt, according to US Census data. That’s 43 million people, or 12.9 percent of the American population. Collectively, they held a total of $1.6 trillion in student loan debt as of March 31, 2021. The greatest amount, a staggering $600 billion, is owed by those between the ages of 35 to 49 years old. Black Americans borrow more often and in greater amounts, in comparison to other races and ethnicities. Additionally, among all borrowers, women typically borrow more for a college education than men –and attain a higher number of degrees, as well. Student loans are notoriously difficult to pay off, much less wipe out. So, can bankruptcy help with discharging student loan debt? Does student debt and student loan forgiveness affect every American equally? And, what exactly is The Brunner Test?

Benjamin Franklin once said: “In this world, nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” An estimated 11.23 million Americans owed a total of more than $125 billion in back taxes to the federal government in 2019, according to Internal Revenue Service (IRS) data, and growing even more ever since the pandemic has started. Adding further difficulties into the mix have been tax deadline extensions, mid-tax season changes in taxable unemployment benefits, an advance Child Tax Credit, and stimulus payment recoveries through filing taxes.

Since 2022 began, there has been an average of 1,310 Bankruptcy filings per day across the United States. Filing for bankruptcy has a bad reputation in many circles, and a large part of the reason why people say bankruptcy is bad is because they don’t understand the process. There are different types of bankruptcy designed to meet an individual’s specific financial needs. Chapter 13, also known as a “wage earner’s plan” is a type of bankruptcy that allows individuals to develop a plan to repay all or part of their debts over the course of 3-5 years. But, what exactly is a Chapter 13 Plan? How does it work? What happens if I lose my job? Can a Chapter 13 plan help me with foreclosure, tax debt or child support? This week, our Bankruptcy Attorney Amy Wilburn continues the discussion of Chapter 13, the repayment plan, and how Bankruptcy can be a valuable financial tool for you.

Ask The Experts | Chapter 13 (2/12/22 – 26:47)

Have you tried everything to catch up on your debt but still can’t seem to manage? If you’ve exhausted all your options, Bankruptcy and specifically Chapter 7 might be the next option to consider. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a legal process that can help individuals get relief from debts by discharging or clearing some or all of what’s owed.

As forbearance programs come to an end and people go back to dealing with their mortgages, there’s an expected rapid and dramatic increase in foreclosure proceedings.

Title 42 is one of the biggest anti-immigrant policies to come out of the Trump administration. Originally, Title 42 was enacted as part of the Public Health Service Act of 1944 as a response to World War II. On March 20, 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Robert Redfield authorized the use of Title 42 to “expel” migrants seeking asylum in as little as 15 minutes in order to control the spread of COVID-19.

A pair of Ukrainian-American twins were less than two weeks old, born prematurely via surrogate near Kyiv, Ukraine, when the city turned into a war zone. Lenny and Moishe were born at 32 weeks, and needed intensive care due to their premature birth. The hospital in Kyiv had no bomb shelter and no basement, and were in grave danger. Although the twins were born US citizens, getting them to the safety of their parents in the United States was no easy feat legally.
