Christie is back for her fourth episode of The Crushing Debt Podcast.  Bear with me this week, as I deal with some laryngitis.

Christie and I have discussed student loans, but in this episode, we're going to talk about consumer law - the TCPA (Telephone Consumer Protection Act).

The TCPA is designed to stop robocalling, and abuse or harassment of borrowers by creditors.  Creditors can pay damages of between $500  and $1,500 PER CALL if they are told to stop making calls and cease to do so.

To contact Christie, visit her website www.ChristieArkovich.com or 813-258-2808.

We have a great guest to kick off Year 3 of content here at The Crushing Debt Podcast.

We met Mary Wheeler, of Abundant Wealth Solutions, at PodFest Multimedia Expo 2018 this past February in Orlando, FL.

Mary is a financial coach who holds local workshops, speaking to high school and college students about the dangers of debt.  Mary's mantra is "Know debt, no problem!" and that makes her a perfect guest for The Crushing Debt Podcast!

What we found incredible was that Mary eliminated over $30,000 of debt in 96 days!  Hear her story and her tips in this week's episode.

Mary can be reached at www.abundantwealthsolutions.com

In this week's episode of podcast (the last of Year 2), we talk about Property Tax Portability. 

Applications to qualify your FL residence as your Homestead were due March 1, however what happens if you move from one primary residence to another?

Florida has a "Save Our Homes Cap" that prevents the taxable value of the homestead property from increasing by more than 3% from year to year.  Previously, when the homeowner moved, they lost that 3% cap.  In response, the Legislature enacted "portability" that allows the homeowner to carry with them (to port) their 3% savings from one homestead to another.

For more information, of if you want to ensure that your homestead was ported properly, contact us at Shawn@YesnerLaw.com or www.YesnerLaw.com

In this week's episode, we talk about bankruptcy cases that are DOA or Dead on Arrival - meaning a bankruptcy case that is dismissed within 6 months of being filed.

This week's episode is based on an article in the ABI Journal article written by Ed Flynn, a consultant with the ABI (American Bankruptcy Institute.  You'll remember Mr. Flynn, who also wrote an article that was the basis for Ep 79, Chapter 13 Success Rates.

Today's episode reviews different factors that may cause a case to be DOA - or dismissed within 6 months.  Some of the factors analyzed by Mr. Flynn include:

Filed pro se (without an attorney)

Filed jointly (by husband and wife)

A second or third filing

Filed without paying the filing fee

Filed "bare-bones" (without supporting schedules)

Involved real property

We discuss all of these statistics, as well as give our spin on Mr. Flynn's findings.  If you want to see the article written by Mr. Flynn, please email me at Shawn@YesnerLaw.com.
