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 Little Canada, MN

As a result of the abundant hunting and fishing resources in the region that is currently known as Little Canada, the Mdewakanton Dakota tribe's seasonal home of Kaposi, also known as the village of Little Crow made their summer home in the region. The French/Canadians were the first settlers in the area. Many of these settlers' descendants still live in the community of Little Canada.

The settler Benjamin Gervais relocated from St. Paul north in 1844 to claim land so that he could build the first Minnesota grist mill, which was independent from the government. These days, on the eastern side of Little Canada there is a large lake that is named after him known as Lake Gervais. This grist mill is considered the birthplace of the community and was eventually converted into a park. In 1858, Little Canada started out as the township of New Canada.

The first school in the region taught classes in French after it was established in 1850. The Saint John the Evangelist Catholic Church, which was built in 1852, is one of the historical locations in Ramsey County. The Saint John's Cemetery was the second cemetery in Minnesota. The year 1858 brought the incorporation of Little Canada as a township.

Later, the suburban sprawl of the ensuing larger communities that were established during the 1950's, including Maplewood, threatened the small township. The leaders of this community came together and established the village of Little Canada in 1953. The year 1974 brought the incorporation of Little Canada as a city.

This community isn't shy when it comes to its Canadian heritage. For example, the Canadian Flag is proudly on display in council chambers and the initials LC on a white Fleur de Lis with a red Maple Leaf background is the official symbol. In early August, the community hosts the annual celebration called Canadian Days with its sister city, Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada.

The sister cities, Thunder bay, Ontario and Little Canada, Minnesota have been coming together since 1977 to celebrate their international friendship, and enjoy a weekend of fun and food. In 1976, the first Little Canada festival began as Bicentennial celebration of the United States. Volunteers elected to continue this annual festival because it was immensely enjoyed by the residents. Although they didn't need any reason to celebrate, members of the community believed that the community needed to host an event that wouldn't interfere with the festivals on July 4th.

Sharron Clasen, president of the PTSA in Little Canada, conceived of an event to celebrate the longest undefended border in the world between the United States and Canada, and at the same time honor the heritage of the community. This began the annual Canadian Days festival. Little Canada asked Thunder Bay to become a sister city and the celebration that summer began.

The international friendship between the two communities continues to be strong some 40 years later. Numerous genuine relationships have been fostered. Approximately 50 residents from Thunder Bay arrive for the celebration every year, including the Thunder Bay Councilors and Mayor, committee members from their sister city, and the MacGillivray Pipe Band and their families. Ever since 1977, the MacGillivray Pipe Band has been a traditional and integral part of the celebration of Canadian Days.

The Historical Society of Little Canada was established in 1977 with the objective of preserving the unique history of the community of Little Canada, especially the French/Canadian genealogy and is a completely volunteer organization. There is a reference library that is available to the public as well as a genealogy database and many different historical exhibits that present the history of the community within the society. A gift shop is also available both on the website of the historical society as well as at the physical location.

Little Canada takes great pride in the settlers that established the community as well as their French/Canadian heritage. The community works hard to maintain their identity of a unique small community in spite of their busy surroundings of a metropolitan area. Little Canada is located centrally and is only 11 miles northeast of downtown Minneapolis and five miles north of downtown Saint Paul.

With the nearby regional trails, a transit hub, and access to the metropolitan freeway system, the community is well connected to the region. Little Canada offers a beautiful park system, access to a variety of different lakes, community gatherings, nearby entertainment, strong local businesses, a very large array of housing options, good schools, and numerous opportunities for employment. Both families and individuals alike can be comfortable in this community doing both exiting and peaceful activities alike.

In January, 2013 an incident involving a Little Canada resident made national news when he was charged with obstruction of legal process and disorderly conduct for videotaping police officers making an arrest. This incident comes at a time when the topics of civil liberties and rights under the Fourth Amendment are hot-button issues in our nation.
