Former fling of Miami Heat star files for bankruptcy

There are many reasons that people in the Tampa area, and anywhere else, get into debt. Some of those reasons are due to bad choices or poor money management, while other financial problems are completely out of a person’s control. Getting out of debt can be difficult, but there are several options for a person to regain control of his or her financial status.

The former girlfriend of Miami Heat star Chris Bosh has filed for Chapter 13-bankruptcy protection after she claims she can’t afford to support herself and the child they had together on the monthly child support she receives. According to reports, Allison Mathis claims that Mr. Bosh only pays her less then $3,000 a month in child support. Reportedly the couple has been involved in an-going custody and support battle over the child for several years.

 Ms. Mathis claims that she currently owes creditors almost $287,000, while she claims about $320,000 in current assets. Meanwhile, Ms. Mathis claims that she has monthly expenses of $1,615 with an income of $3,985. Ms. Mathis says that she owes $284,000 on her home but that Mr. Bosh, who is still being paid for a $109 million dollar deal with the Heat, only pays her $2,700 in monthly child support.

Although the circumstances in this situation are up for debate, Ms. Mathis has made the decision to file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy in order to protect herself. No one ever wants to file for bankruptcy, but sometimes it’s the best option possible for the situation. If you feel like bankruptcy might be an option to help you get out of debt, then you might want to contact an experienced bankruptcy attorney.
