CHAPTER 7

If credit card debt, medical bills, or other unsecured debts are the source of your financial trouble, Chapter 7 Bankruptcy could be the path towards your fresh start. If this plan is selected as the most beneficial route to you, filing will result in an automatic stay which bans creditors from collecting or ringing your phone ever again. While the benefits of Chapter 7 are immense, it is not the most desirable option for all, and eligibility requirements can be tricky. Furthermore, if your debts are student loans or child support payments, these debts are not dischargeable, and this path is likely not ideal for you.

To determine if Chapter 7 is capable of providing you with debt relief, it is imperative you consult with a trusted Bankruptcy Lawyer. Navigating the ins and outs of the Minnesota Bankruptcy laws to ensure you receive the best possible outcome is only possible with a qualified lawyer on your side.

CHAPTER 13

Filing for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, safeguards assets such as your home or car that would not be protected from the Bankruptcy Court in Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Chapter 13 can be particularly favorable for those looking to discharge debts that are not dischargeable in Chapter 7, such as child support or student loans. Whether you have already filed for Chapter 7 in the past or you are looking for a nondisruptive way to reorganize your debts, Chapter 13 could deliver you into financial freedom.

Upon completing a three to a five-year payment plan to your creditors on a reduced debt, your remaining debt is discharged. While Chapter 13 is harsher on your credit report than Chapter 7, Hoglund Law sticks by you to rebuild your credit score to ensure you can fully partake in a financially stable future.

Chapter 13 is only beneficial if it is the correct course of action for you. To determine if Chapter 13 is your route to a fresh start, trust our qualified team at Hoglund Law and book a free 30-45 minute consultation at our Minneapolis office.

DEBT SETTLEMENT

If you have outstanding personal debt and fail to qualify for bankruptcy, there is no need to worry because debt settlement is still a viable alternative. While this option does not discharge your debt, it almost always results in significantly lowering the total debt you owe. Often referred to as debt negotiation, having stellar legal representation draws creditors to the table for mediation.

Thirty years of experience has allowed our outstanding Bankruptcy Attorneys to understand creditors prefer to negotiate with you instead of you filing for bankruptcy which would result in them receiving no payment. Consequently, your representation will negotiate until a resolution is agreed upon that allows you to make feasible payments on your reduced debt. To obtain an attorney that is well versed in debt settlement and has deep expertise in negotiating, schedule a consultation right here at Hoglund Law.

Minneapolis Social Security Disability ATTORNEY

Hennipen County, MN

What is Social Security Disability

Social Security Disability benefits were designed to protect people like you from loss of income due to a condition that prevents them from working. If you think you qualify, it is extremely important that you contact a Social Security Disability attorney to help you receive the benefits you deserve.

There are two different types of Social Security Disability: Social Security Disability Insurance SSDI and Supplemental Security Income SSI. SSDI is for applicants who have worked long enough and paid Social Security taxes, whereas SSI is distributed based on financial need. Regardless of which kind you apply for you must meet certain medical criteria to be considered disabled.

Unsure whether you meet the criteria, or simply want help figuring out the best strategy for applying? Your best course of action is to meet an experienced Hoglund Law attorney who will be able to give you a case evaluation for free—supplying you with the answers that you are looking for.

How a Minneapolis Social Security Disability Attorney Can Help

Though you only need to fall under one of three categories to qualify for Social Security Disability, the categories themselves are much narrower than people think and there are many factors that can lead to someone being wrongly denied. Unfortunately, there have been cases where people have filed an SSD or SSI case, were denied, and gave up without consulting an attorney. Often, there was just information missing in their file or they didn’t know what sort of evidence the Social Security Administration was looking for.

At Hoglund Law’s Minneapolis office, we know what information the Social Security Administration looks for and offer a free case evaluation to arm Minneapolis residents, like you, with that information. This means that if you have any doubt about whether you qualify for Social Security, or know you qualify but are unsure how to proceed, legal consultation is easily accessible to you. It also means that you will be able to find out exactly what you need to do to file your case and have the best shot at being approved.

Who Qualifies for Social Security Disability

Disability is one of the three categories that those filing for Social Security fall under. The following list covers some of the conditions that qualify for Social Security. If you are at all unsure whether your specific condition qualifies, it is imperative you speak with an attorney for a free case evaluation, during which you will receive information specific to you.

If you live in Minneapolis and suffer from one of these conditions, it is possible you qualify for SSD: Mental Disorders, musculoskeletal problems, skin disorders, immune system disorders, digestive track disorders, speech and sense issues, cardiovascular conditions, neurological disorders, etc.

Again, this list is nowhere near exhaustive. Meeting with an attorney is the best way to get an idea of whether you specifically qualify. To see a longer list of qualifying conditions, click here.

Why Are People Denied Social Security Disability

There are numerous reasons that people may be denied Social Security Disability. Sometimes there simply isn’t enough medical evidence to support—to the Social Security Administration’s standards—that an applicant has the condition they claim or that it prevents them from working. Other times the Social Security Administration simply fails to consider all of an applicant’s conditions. In these cases, we advise appealing the decision. But there are some cases where applicants will be denied due to things that disqualify them.

These situations can include an applicant’s use of drugs or alcohol, fraud, short term disability, convictions, etc. so it is important to consult with an attorney to be sure that these things will not impact your filing.

How to apply for Social Security Benefits in Minneapolis

You will want to go into your nearest Social Security office to apply, or you can try filing online. The Social Security office in Minneapolis, Minnesota is located at 1811 Chicago Avenue Suite 2, Minneapolis, MN 55404. Be sure to bring with you the names, contact information, and addresses of all doctors, hospitals or clinics that you went to for treatment regarding your condition, as well as a list of condition-related prescription medications you’ve taken or are taking and the names/addresses of all previous employers within the last 15 years.

If you do not have all this information, you should still file with what you do have. Immediacy is crucial in filing, and you can always update your case later. The longer it takes you to apply the more time you will spend waiting for that first check.

Have You Been Denied SSDI / SSI?

Simply being denied once does not mean that you should give up. In fact, most applicants are denied in the first two rounds of application. It isn’t until applicants reach the hearing that they are fully able to explain why they need those benefits.

At a hearing you will be able to argue against information contained in your file, cross examine witnesses, and introduce new evidence to the administrative law judge—things that are much easier done with an attorney.

Therefore the best way to apply for Social Security Benefits is to contact an attorney. An attorney will be able to make sure that the information you file will be as complete as possible. They will be able to advise you on what must be done to get your case taken seriously, as well as protect your right to a fair hearing should your case be denied initially. These advantages cannot be overstated—in fact, statistics have shown that claimants represented by attorneys are more successful in receiving benefits than those representing themselves.

Our conveniently located Minneapolis office will be able to assist you in getting started. Your first step is to walk into the door for a free case evaluation where you will learn what you need to file successfully. Already filed? Coming in as soon as possible is important to allow our attorneys ample time to prepare for what comes next.

About Minneapolis Minnesota

Exceeding the population of its twin city, St. Paul, Minneapolis is home to 425,403 proud Minnesotans. With an abundance of fresh water, residents have access to 13 lakes, the Mississippi River, and a plethora of creeks and waterfalls scattered throughout the area. Home to the fifth-highest number of Fortune 500 headquarters in the nation, this cultural hub is also exploding with talent. Originally built around Saint Anthony Falls which powered the early flour industry, Minneapolis has since transformed into the home of the powerhouse, General Mills.

Even with a delicately curated city plan that incorporates green spaces, bike trails, and parks into the downtown area, you don’t have to go far to be overcome with the beauty of Minnesota’s wildlife truly. Minneapolis residents live in a city that enables them to shop at the largest mall in the United States on the same day they visit the cascading waterfalls of Minnehaha Park. From its cultural landmarks including the Sculpture Garden and the Walker Art Center to its substantial production of internationally recognized talent like Prince and Lizzo, there is no shortage of things to adore about Minneapolis.
