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 Coon Rapids, MN

Coon Rapids was once and small community with dirt roads and no electricity that was created by the building of a dam. Today, Coon Rapids is a thriving urban community with an excellent quality of life.

In 1857, the township of Anoka was organized and Coon Rapids became a separate government entity. With the exception of the community of Anoka, which was incorporated as a separate community, Coon Rapids still has the same boundaries as it did in 1857.

There was a road that was well-traveled which ran through Anoka County in 1847 when the Federal Government first surveyed the region. It may be the oldest road in the area. It was originally laid out for use by the military in 1835. A man named Norman Kittson established trade between Pembina and St. Paul in 1843 and then the road became part of the famous Red River Ox Cart Trail. The trail closely followed what is currently known as the Coon Rapids/East River Road Boulevard alignment.

At that time, the primary industry in the Coon Creek region was agriculture. Farms ranged in size from 90 to 600 acres. The first industry in Coon Rapids not related to agriculture was the Anoka Terra Cotta and Pressed Brick Company. It was the first brickyard in the area, located close to the old City Hall, and was organized by a Dr. D. Dunham in 1881. Today the location is known as the Clay Hole.

The Great Northern Development Company proposed the construction of a dam below the Coon Creek Rapids and to have a plant that generated power located on the eastern side of the river in the middle of 1898. However, it wasn't until 1912 that the actual construction got underway. It only took a year for a small community to develop on the shores of the Mississippi River. As streets were being laid out and graded, the population of this small community increased to more than 1,000 people, many of which were engineers and laborers working on the dam. By 1914, the dam constructed by the Mississippi Power Company was operational. Until 1969, the dam was operated by the Northern States Power Company. Then the Park Board of Hennepin County bought the dam and it currently serves as the Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park.

The township of Anoka became Coon Creek Rapids when the dam was completed and was later renamed Coon Rapids. In an effort to incorporate Anoka Township as a village, an election was held in mid 1948. In 1952, the initiative finally passed after originally being defeated. In 1957, the residents elected to change the type of village government to a Manager/ Council form of government. In 1959 Coon Rapids was incorporated as a city.

The population of Coon Rapids has increased to more than 61,500 people from the 14,000 people in 1959. This makes Coon Rapids the 9th largest community in Minnesota and the 5th largest suburb in the metropolitan region. The community of Coon Rapids is located only 20 minutes north of Minneapolis-St. Paul, is a quiet suburb on the Mississippi River, and is the gateway to the northern part of the state for the metropolitan region.

The population of Coon Rapids had increased to 14,931 people by 1960 and continued to increase rapidly. Many residents of Coon Rapids attended St. Stephen's Church in Anoka and St. Timothy's in Blaine. They wanted their own parish. Archbishop Leo Binz requested Father Bernard Reiser to organize the first Catholic parish in Coon Rapids in 1964. Later that same year, Father Reiser was officially designated as the first pastor of Epiphany.

The small residential house on 111th Avenue where the Father lived served as the rectory before the church was built. In the basement, which served as the chapel, Father Reiser baptized babies, heard confessions, and said daily Mass. Mass was held in the auditorium of the Coon Rapids Senior High School on Sunday mornings. A committee was formed during the next three years to plan for a school/church complex. In 1966, the groundbreaking ceremonies were held and, in 1967, the parish started holding their services in the new building.

In 1970, a new addition to the church was built because the church was growing as fast as Coon Rapids was growing. Construction plans for a new church with even more space was created by a task force by 1981. In 1984, the parish relocated into the new church.

These days, Epiphany Parish is one of the largest parishes in the Twin City region, with sanctuary seating of 1,600 people. Father Reiser will always be remembered as the man who made Epiphany the best place to worship in the area, although he is now semi-retired and no longer the pastor.

A Pastor named Harold Tollefson went from one house to the next taking a survey in 1955. He wanted to know if the residents needed a Lutheran church in Coon Rapids. When many answered yes. Pastor Tollefson held the very first Lutheran service in a store in Coon Rapids in 1955. This store was later known as the Sportsman's Bar. That first service on a Sunday morning saw ten families come together. However, as the number of families attending the service increased, they relocated to the L.O. Jacob School. The people soon found they needed their own church.

Between 1955 and 1960, there were many firsts for Faith Lutheran. One of these was the dedication of the Sunday school and church unit. The first Annual Congregational meeting was held in the church in 1957.

Coon Rapids is 23 square miles and offers a major shopping development, swimming pools, biking and hiking trails, tennis courts, baseball and softball fields, outdoor ice rinks, indoor ice arenas, a municipal golf course, and many different regional and neighborhood parks for everybody to enjoy.
