According to the latest US Census data (from 2010), the average family has $7,360 in revolving debt (typically, mostly credit cards). The data also shows that the average household owes $11,244 in student loans, $8,163 on automobiles, and $70,322 on a mortgage.
Total that all up, and that’s $97,089 in debt – and we know that current data shows that the average debt per family has increased.
It doesn’t take much to push a family over the edge of a downward spiral. If you’re living anywhere close to paycheck to paycheck, or if you don’t have much in savings, a single event can put you in a situation where debt skyrockets.
If you lose your job, or get in a major car accident, or have a significant health issue – anything that interrupts your ability to work and bring in money – you could find yourself in a downward debt spiral.
Unfortunately, bad things happen to good people. If you’ve had a similar bump in the road and you’re overwhelmed with debt, bankruptcy could be the answer you’ve been looking for.
