Can You Receive Compensation for Occupational Claims in New Jersey?

Wear and tear injuries are often overlooked by employees, dismissed as nothing significant, even though these injuries, developed over time, can merit workers’ compensation aid as occupational claims. When people discuss workers’ compensation, they imagine critical and dramatic injuries. They imagine someone at a factory, their arms crushed under gears. They imagine drivers T-boned against a building front.

However, many people dismiss the prevalence of injuries that develop over time. Exposure to some chemical or repetitious physical actions can, over time, result in serious and painful injuries that are just as debilitating as a more dramatic and immediate injury. You are entitled to occupational claims for wear and tear injuries.

How Long Does Foreclosure Take in New Jersey?

When you are behind on your mortgage payments, it is only a matter of time before you ask how long you have before the foreclosure process begins.

In New Jersey, when you take out a mortgage loan, your property serves as collateral for that loan. If you fail to meet your due payments, your home may be taken from you by your lenders and creditors. Your lender or creditor has a lien on your property, which makes them legally justified to foreclose on their collateral.

That means you might lose your house and home when the lender – with the assistance of the county sheriff -- sets out to sell your property to pay off the outstanding debt to the lender that you have accrued. This is referred to as a Sheriff Sale. It is the final step in the process known as foreclosure. From start to finish, how long does a foreclosure take in the state of New Jersey?

How Much Does it Cost to File Bankruptcy in New Jersey?

When you file for bankruptcy, you are often struggling to overcome the fees and debts that have smothered your financial status, so when you are offered a solution to escape that debt, your first question is “Well, how much will it cost me?”


Ultimately, bankruptcy will probably save you more than it will cost you. If your debts are piling up and you stand to lose your house, your car, your property – then filing for bankruptcy is a small price to pay. However, there are fees along the way that you will need to make to push the process along.

How Do You Rent a New Apartment After Filing for Bankruptcy in NJ?

When you file for bankruptcy, you often feel marked by the filing. Whether you’re buying a new car or looking for a new apartment to rent, you remain conscious that your bankruptcy will follow you. Bankruptcy remains reported for a time on your credit score.

If you intend on finding a new apartment or a new house to rent, you will need to be open about your financial history. This includes any past bankruptcy filings or prior evictions. Some landlords will obviously reject people if they do not feel your records satisfy their needs for a tenant. This can be highly stressful for people who needed bankruptcy relief.

If you are looking for a new place to live and are afraid that bankruptcy will hold you back from success, then you may want to consider a few factors before moving forward in order to know where you stand and how you can convince a landlord to give you a new lease on an apartment.

Is it Better to File Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in New Jersey?

When someone researches bankruptcy for the first time, they come across individuals discussing their experiences with two entirely different forms of bankruptcy: Chapter 7 or Chapter 13. Bankruptcy, with its numerous chapters and subchapters, might be an overwhelming to an ordinary person. It might take hours of research, for example, before one realizes that Chapter 11 is usually only an option for businesses and not private individuals trying to eradicate debt.

Without an experienced bankruptcy professional guiding your way, Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 might seem like nebulous concepts. How do you know, for example, whether you should consider liquidation? How do you know which option can better help you reorganize your credit and dispel unsecured debt? In cases like these, you need to consider what Chapter 7 Bankruptcy and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy both bring to the table, how they can help you understand and navigate your financial situation, and what you should do when and if you choose to file for bankruptcy as an individual in New Jersey.
