Student loan debt may, rarely, be discharged

When New Mexico citizens face financial challenges or some type of unexpected life changes, life can become very difficult very quickly. Many people have little or no savings, and unpaid bills begin to accumulate with not much chance to dig out of the financial deficit. Bankruptcy may be contemplated if the source of the debt is, for example, medical bills or credit card debt, but some debts are not dischargeable such as child support or government fines. Student debt has rapidly become almost a national epidemic, and although it is rare, under certain circumstances, it may be included in a bankruptcy proceeding.

An important document that two thirds of Americans are missing

One study performed in 2017 showed that a third of all Americans do not have a healthcare directive. This is surprising considering how important this document is and that both legal and healthcare professionals advocate for it. New Mexico residents may be interested in learning more about this document.

What to consider before a New Mexico divorce

The decision to file for a divorce is never something to be taken lightly. It might be that you have spent years considering whether to take action, and you are finally in a position where you feel ready to move forward. However, before filing for divorce, make sure that you have paid particular attention to financial as well as emotional factors.

Automation and intense competition impact warehouse safety

The retail landscape in New Mexico continues to shift from brick-and-mortar stores to online retail. Shipping orders requires warehouses to store merchandise and process orders. As more commerce relies on warehouses, the injury rate among warehouse workers has become comparable to agricultural work. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that warehouse work injures 5.1 people per 100 full-time warehouse workers. Between 2015 and 2017, the fatal accident rate in warehouses doubled from 11 to 22. Safety analysts attribute the worsening situation to humans working alongside robotic equipment and business financial concerns that focus on productivity and sometimes limit time committed to safety training and accident evaluation.

How women are meeting the challenges they face after divorce

In a country where women often experience a decrease in income after a divorce and are usually awarded custody of children, it only makes sense that women will face challenges that are different from those men face after the divorce process. Women in New Mexico may be interested in learning about the challenges that other divorced women have faced and learning ways that they have coped with the situation.
