We can't solve every problem, but we have helped many people to improve their credit scores and get out from under crushing debt.

Bankruptcy is a Possible Solution to Many Common Debt Problems:

  • Harassment by Creditors – Are you getting collection calls and letters for bills you can't pay?
  • Robbing Peter to Pay Paul – Are you taking cash advances from one credit card to pay another?
  • Payday Loans – Are you caught in an unending cycle of short-term high interest loans?
  • Foreclosure – Are you in danger of losing your home? If you have a second mortgage, there is a good chance you will be sued after you lose the house to foreclosure. A Chapter 13 bankruptcy might be the best way to save it.
  • Repossession – Have you missed one or more car payments? A Chapter 13 bankruptcy might be the best way to catch up. If your car is repossessed and you are unable to deal with the lender, the car will be sold at a wholesale auction, usually at a heavy loss, and you will probably be sued for a surprisingly large amount of money. You will then have a judgment against you and no car.
  • Lawsuits & Judgments – Have you been sued or threatened with a lawsuit? If a creditor wins a lawsuit against you (which often happens by default) a judgment will be entered against you and the creditor will look for ways to collect, including wage garnishments and bank levies.
  • Garnishments and Levies – If a creditor garnishes your paycheck, you could lose a quarter of your take home pay. If you have a bank account, a creditor might drain it to pay its judgment.
  • Low Credit Score – A low credit score can be devastating. You either won't be able to get a loan at all, or will be forced to pay high interest rates, which may make the payments too high to afford. Even worse, a low credit score may make it hard to rent an apartment or get a good job. Call us to talk about improving your credit.
  • Driver's License Suspended After an Accident without Car Insurance – If you can't afford to pay the damages, bankruptcy may be the only feasible way to get your license back.

About Bloomington, MN

Bloomington is the fifth largest city in the State of Minnesota. It is located in southern Hennepin County, on the north bank of the Minnesota River, above its confluence with the Mississippi River. The city is situated about ten miles south of downtown Minneapolis, and is directly connected to the Minneapolis street grid. It is serviced by two major interstate highways, Interstate 35W and Interstate 494, as well as Highways 77 and 169. Bloomington has small town beginnings, grew as a post-World War II suburb, and has thrived in recent years as a commercial center. As of the 2010 census, the city had 82,893 residents.

Bloomington's known history dates to 1839, when Chief Cloud Man of the Mdewakanton Dakota relocated his band from the shores of Lake Calhoun to an area called Oak Grove, located in present-day southern Bloomington. The first European settlers to the area, Peter and Louisa Quinn, built a cabin on the banks of the Minnesota River in 1843. The government had sent them to the vicinity to teach farming techniques and methods to the Native Americans. Following the Treaty of Traverse des Sioux in 1851, the territory in which Bloomington lies was opened to settlers. In 1858, 25 residents incorporated the Town of Bloomington, giving it its name after the city of Bloomington, Illinois.

By 1880, the Town of Bloomington had 820 residents. In 1892, the first town hall was constructed, near the intersection of Penn Avenue and Old Shakopee Road. The city would grow slowly but steadily over the next half-century, and in 1940 had 3,647 residents. Following the Second World War, America entered a period of unparalleled prosperity and mobility, enticing returning war veterans and others to buy into the suburban lifestyle in their pursuit of the "American Dream". At the time, Bloomington's development vision was to be a place of "low-density, low-cost housing, each with its own well and septic system". This was just the type of housing that was in demand at the time, and before long, the city exploded with development.

In 1950, at the precipice of the housing boom, the city had 9,902 residents. During the next decade, a massive level of development occurred in Bloomington, from large-scale residential suburban developments to the Metropolitan Stadium, which would become the home of both the Minnesota Twins and Minnesota Vikings until 1981. During the 1950's, the city also saw the first of its large-scale businesses arrive in town when the Toro Manufacturing Company set up shop in 1952. Commercial development would slowly become the mantra of Bloomington, and the city government changed its form in 1958 to accommodate. The 1950's radically transformed Bloomington, and during that decade the population increased 510%, giving the city 50,498 residents by 1960.

In the 1960's, the city's slogan regarding business growth was "all the business that will fit". Corporate campuses began to pop up around town, and in 1967 the city would become the site of the Metropolitan Sports Center, home to the Minnesota North Stars hockey team. In 1968, Normandale Community College opened its doors, with an attendance of 1,358, adding an element of higher education to the city which hadn't previously existed. By 1970, however, growth in the city began to slow, and the city was nearly fully developed, with a population of 81,971. The 1970's saw the expansion of the city's commercial base, and the construction of several high-rise business buildings along Highway 494. By 1980, there were 54,000 jobs in the city.

In 1981, the Minnesota Twins and Minnesota Vikings left for Minneapolis, and left an 86-acre parcel open for future development. In 1985, the City of Bloomington Port Authority purchased this site, and in less than two years approved preliminary plans for what would become the Mall of America. Groundbreaking of the site took place in 1989, and the Mall of America would be completed by 1992, directly adjacent to the Metropolitan Sports Center. Within two years of the mall's opening, Minnesota lost the North Stars hockey team to Dallas, and the sports center was razed to make way for the IKEA store, which did not open until 2004. During the 1990's, employment surpassed population in Bloomington, buoyed by the Mall of America and its tenants, which employ approximately 13,000 people. In 2006, the Water Park of America opened nearby, the ninth largest indoor water park in the nation. In 2010, Bloomington had 91,500 jobs.

In the 21st century, the focus of the city has shifted to confronting the needs of an aging population and housing stock. Development and redevelopment are simultaneously sought to keep the city both competitive and desirable. Traffic congestion has become a major issue in the city, with endemic traffic jams being a concern along Interstate 494. Sustainable development and transportation issues in recent years have taken center stage, as the city works to remain viable in a changing world.
