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 St Paul, MN

Saint Paul is Minnesota's state capital, the county seat of Ramsey County, and the 2nd largest community in the state. The combination of its location on the upper part of the Mississippi River, which has the most northern natural navigable port on the river, and its' proximity to Fort Snelling, which was the first major presence of the US military in the region, spurred the growth of the city.

Between about 438 and 505 million years ago, during Ordovician and Upper Cambrian time, much of then-equatorial southern Minnesota was covered with shallow tropical seas. The sedimentary rocks that make up the bedrock of St. Paul were deposited during this time. A layer of St. Peter Sandstone, which is between 156 and 166 feet thick, is the most visible of these. The lowest layer of sedimentary rock above the Mississippi River is located in Saint Paul. Between a 3 and a 5.5 foot thick layer of Glendale Shale overlays this sedimentary rock and is then capped with a layer of Platteville Limestone that is 28 feet thick. The fossiliferous Decorah Shale overlays these units, which is as thick as 95 feet in some places, and completely eroded away in other places. This is exposed in Lilydale Park, which is where the popular fossil hunting known as the brickyards is located. All of the exposed units in St. Paul on the surface are of the age of Ordovician.

Initially called Fort Saint Anthony, Fort Snelling was established in 1819 at the confluence of the Minnesota and Mississippi Rivers so that an American dominance could be established over the fur trading industry on the rivers. The military officers at Fort Snelling banned distillers from the land that the fort controlled when the whiskey trade began thriving. However, there was a French Canadian fur trader who had retired and turned to bootlegging named Pierre Parrant who was especially irritating to the military officials of the day. Parrant relocated his operation and living quarters about five miles downstream on the northern bank of the river near present day downtown St. Paul in 1838. In this location Parrant established the region that became known as the L'Oeil de Cochon, which translates from French into Pig's Eye. This new location was first settled by the French Canadians. The region was secured for white settlement by a treaty with the Native Indians in 1837. In honor of Paul the Apostle, a Father named Lucien Galtier, who was a priest from France, changed the name of the small new community to Saint Paul in 1841.

In the city's early years, it had became known locally as Pig's Eye Landing or simply Pig's Eye, and had developed in to a stopover point for settlers traveling west, and an important trading center by the early 1840's. In 1849, Saint Paul became the capital of the newly formalized Minnesota Territory. The year 1854 brought the incorporation of Saint Paul as a city and Minnesota was accepted into the union in 1858 with Saint Paul the capital of its newest state.

The development and settlement of Saint Paul as a transportation and trade center was influenced by the natural geography of the community. Saint Paul was developed around the last place to unload boats that were coming upriver at an easily accessible location about 14 miles downstream from Saint Anthony Falls (then known as Lambert's landing). In this region, the Mississippi River valley consists of a series of stone bluffs that line either side of the river. This geographic feature is what defines the location of Minneapolis and its prominence as the Mill City. This made Saint Paul a gateway for westbound settlers from the upper Midwest for who were traveling to the Dakota Territory or the Minnesota frontier.

Over 1,000 steamboats unloaded passengers and cargo in Saint Paul in 1858. The wagon and cart road became the Saint Anthony Trail which became the Red River valley, which led from Saint Paul and was followed by many different railroads that had their headquarters in Saint Paul, including the Northern Pacific Railway and the Great Northern Railway, which are both currently part of the BNSF Railway.

For more than a century, Saint Paul was a railroad community and a frontier community. These days, the community is more influenced by its function as state capital as well as commerce. Saint Paul has been referred to as the Last City of the East.

The people of Saint Paul have defined the flavor of this community. First generation immigrants have been dominant throughout the history of Saint Paul, by introducing their cultures, religions, and languages. The institutions in Saint Paul demonstrates this influx of peoples because they were built by Hmong, Mexican, Italian, Polish, Austro/Hungarian, Czech, Irish, Swedish, German, French Canadian, and French peoples. These days, Saint Paul is flourishing and continues to be a great place to live, work, and play.
