Students Facing Debt Due to College Loans

The number of pending student loan cases in Birmingham has significantly increased in recent years. Sixty-two lawsuits have been filed against graduated students for their unpaid loans, which is four times the amount that was filed in 2003.

Along with rising tuition prices, the amount students take out for loans has also greatly increased. Rising costs coupled with the lack of available jobs once a student graduates has contributed toward this trend of early debt.

Those who owe money for loans are not given very much leniency. In order to receive the money for loans, prosecutors are sometimes able to place liens on the houses of people who owe money or, even, take money out of a debtor’s saving account or salary.

College administrations have attempted to combat this trend by issuing more grants.

Birmingham Aircraft Company Files for Chapter 11

Alabama Aircraft Industries, Inc., a company that is based out of Birmingham, has filed chapter 11 bankruptcy in order to reorganize their finances.

The company began facing financial trouble when they lost $5.8 million in revenue. The company also had expensive obligations for pension plans, which left them feeling as if they were in a long-term debt. By filing for chapter 11 bankruptcy, the company will be able to organize their pension plans in a way that does not produce debt. They are expecting to completely get out of debt by the summer of 2011.

Homeowners Receive Assistance to Reduce Foreclosures

Governor Bentley of Alabama has created a program that would help to prevent future home foreclosures by assisting homeowners with their mortgages. The federally funded program will aid families for up to 12 months and will be short-term, one-time assistance.

It has been speculated that, in the spring, the housing market will be hit with a new wave of foreclosures. Officials are hoping that this new program will prevent any future families from having to leave their homes. 500 families’ applications to receive the assistance have already been submitted by the Alabama Housing and Finance Authority.
