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 Eden Prairie, MN

For over 100 years after becoming a township in southwestern Hennepin County, Eden Prairie remained primarily farmland, a pastoral village just outside the growing Minneapolis-St. Paul Metropolitan area. In the 1960's, Eden Prairie began to experience rapid growth, and had completed its first major residential developments. In the mid-1970's, the city gained a higher profile with the opening of Highway 494, and the Eden Prairie Shopping Center. Today, Eden Prairie is a thriving suburb of over 60,000 residents, and has been ranked #1 in Money Magazine's "Best Places to Live" 2010 survey. The city is the home to several large businesses, and the headquarters of SuperValu, Digital River, C.H. Robinson, MTS Systems Corp, and the Minnesota Vikings. Also, the city is home to several television broadcasting companies, such as Fox Sports North, KMSP, and WFTC.

American Indians were the first humans known to inhabit the area that would become the City of Eden Prairie. The city's modern history, however, began in 1851 following the signing of the Traverse des Sioux Treaty, which opened up lands west of the Mississippi River for European settlement. Seven years later the Township of Eden Prairie was founded on the date that Minnesota became on state, May 11, 1858. The city was named by Elizabeth Fries Ellet, a writer from the eastern United States who visited the area, and proclaimed it to be the "garden" of the Minnesota Territory. By 1880, Eden Prairie Township had a population of 739, and was primarily a farming community. Located 12 miles southwest of downtown Minneapolis, the city initially grew slowly due to its distance and relative inaccessibility from the city. By 1960, the township had only experienced moderate growth, with its population increasing to about 2,000.

In 1946, Flying Cloud Airport opened, and was the first large-scale development in the township. As growth accelerated, the city needed to change its governmental form to accommodate future development. In 1962, Eden Prairie became a village, and began to see a sprinkling of development, mostly on the eastern end of town. By 1970, the city's population had increased to 6,938, over three times its 1960 population. In 1974, to accommodate growth, Eden Prairie incorporated as a statutory city. As a city, Eden Prairie's growth further accelerated with the construction of Eden Prairie Center in 1976. Around this same time, Highway 494 was completed through the city, and it subsequently became more accessible to commuters. These events became the impetus of Eden Prairie's widespread growth, which hit its peak in the 1980's and 1990's.

In 2000, Eden Prairie had 54,901 residents, and had become a major presence in the Twin Cities Metro Area. Development remained strong in the city throughout the 2000's, but had slowed due to a reduction in available open space. The area around Eden Prairie Center has remained the center of commercial development in the city, and continues to grow to this day. The city has ample open space, but much of it is dedicated to parkland, which occupies about 2,250 acres (about 3 1/2 square miles). The city is a business-rich community that is a highly desirable place to live and work, and, each year since 2006 has been named one of the "Best Places to Live" by Money Magazine.

By 2010, the city was nearly fully developed, had 60,797 residents, and had earned a reputation as a place with a high quality of life. The city boasts an excellent educational system, a beautiful park system, and ample employment opportunities. Eden Prairie High School is the second largest in the state, its enrollment boosted by its reputation. The city has a wide array of housing options for all demographic groups, but is dominated by upper-middle class residences. With the opening of Highway 312 in the 2000's (now called Highway 212), accessibility to the area has increased, and with it, demand for business and housing. This demand has caused the city to continually evolve, building and re-building to create a truly remarkable place.

Eden Prairie is a highly-educated city, with 60.8% of the population 25 years old and older having achieved bachelor degrees or higher in education, almost twice the state average of 32.2%. The population is fairly diverse as well, as 14.5% of residents were born outside of the United States, and 17.9% speak a language other than English at home. Median household income is $93,828, well above the state average of $59,126. As the median household income would suggest, Eden Prairie also has a low level of residents living in poverty (5.4%), at less than half of the Minnesota average (11.2%). Living in Eden Prairie is not especially cheap, however, as the median value of owner-occupied housing units was $311,800 during the period 2008-2012, over $100,000 higher than the state average. Statistics would suggest that Eden Prairie is also a city of families, with above average percentages of those under 18 years old, and a below average percentage of seniors living in the community.
