Do I qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy?

Mississippians struggling with debt may want to consider their bankruptcy options. One option is filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. To do so, debtors must meet certain eligibility requirements. Applicants may qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, if their income falls below the median income in their state. Debtors must participate in credit counseling within 180 days prior to filing for Chapter 7 and submit a certification of completion upon filing with the bankruptcy court.

International abductions in non-Hague Convention cases

A previous Mississippi blog post discussed the Hague Abduction Convention, an international treaty that allows parents to request access to, or the return of, their child who was wrongfully taken across international borders. However, parents may only do so if the other country has adopted the Convention. There are other avenues of assistance for parents of children who were internationally abducted to a country that has not adopted the Convention.

International abductions: The Hague Abduction Convention

A Mississippi child may be illegally removed from the care of his or her legal guardian, often by a parent, because of a child custody dispute or other divorce issues. If that parent lives abroad, it may further complicate the situation. Parents seeking the return of their child taken abroad have options, depending on whether the country has adopted The Hague Abduction Convention.

Providing experienced guidance through the divorce process

Getting a divorce requires spouses to make important decisions, such as how property will be divided, whether alimony will be paid, who will have child custody and child visitation. In Mississippi, there are two types of divorce -- fault-based (contested) and no-fault (uncontested).
