Tennesseans with credit card debt would be well-versed knowing where lawful debt-collection practices end and illegal ones begin. Doing so can eliminate many problems before they escalate.

But, fewer have heard of Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Despite that obscurity, Chapter 13 is a common and often effective way for people to gain a fresh financial start.
