Dave Ramsey: Finding good tenants
AUG 27, 2013

Dave Ramsey

Dear Dave,

My husband was recently denied term life insurance because he has a criminal record from a long time ago. The good news is that, in a year, he’ll be far enough removed from the incident that he’ll be eligible for a policy. He has a whole life policy for $75,000 from before, which he doesn’t plan to cancel. We have two small children, so is there another kind of policy he could get in the interim?

AUG 19, 2013

Dave Ramsey

Dear Dave,

My husband and I would like to buy a home in the next year or so. My credit is in pretty bad shape, so we’ve decided to work on getting his credit in better shape in order to qualify for a mortgage loan. I have $104,000 in debt, and $92,000 of that is in student loans. He has $13,000 in debt, with $7,000 of that a repossession on a car for which he was a co-signer. Can I file bankruptcy on my debts only?
