Unemployment and debt force young adults to live with parents

College graduation is supposed to be an exciting time, as students celebrate their accomplishments and look forward to the life and career ahead of them. However, as the economy continues to struggle, many young adults in Georgia and throughout the country are finding out that their college graduation may not be the beginning of a successful, prosperous life, after all.

According to recently released data from the United States Census Bureau, the number of young adults who live with their parents has steadily increased in recent years. Researchers believe that more young adults are moving back in with their parents as a result of the high unemployment rate, unmanageable student loan payments, and the shaky housing market, all of which leave millions of young people unable to rent or purchase their own home.

Since 2005, the number of young men aged 25 to 34 years old who live with their parents has increased from 14 percent to 19 percent, the Census Bureau reports. The number of young women of the same age who live with parents has also increased from 8 percent to 10 percent since 2005. However, while the rate for men has increased steadily since 2000, the rate for women only began to rise in 2003, and actually decreased by 0.8 percent from 2010 to 2011.

The numbers are even greater for adults aged 18 to 24. According to Census data, 59 percent of men and 50 percent of women live with their parents. However, the Census counts college students who live in dorms or other non-permanent housing under those tallies, which likely skews the statistics for college-aged students.

    They did an excellent job with my case. Jamie took the time to really listen and understand things. She delved into the details and was extremely knowledgeable and non judgmental. Very professional and they know what they are doing. Would definitely recommend!

    Dear Mr Gingold, There are so many reasons to be thankful for all you have done and will do. Anyone who has ever had unfavorable experiences with an attorney or the legal system will feel the trepidation that I experienced once I realized that my situation seemed hopeless. It was by chance and happily good luck that I decided to put my future and sanity into your hands. I was mortified at having to deal with my debts by claiming bankruptcy. I remember in our first meeting how you assured me that I was not alone and should not feel ashamed. And, anyone in this position obviously does not have money to spare and you were clear about all the costs and allowing me to pay according to my own ability to do so. You advised me in all aspects of the law, but also, you were at each meeting incredibly supportive and complementary of my personal and professional plans. Anyone else in this situation should feel blessed to have access to your expertise and support.

    I thought the process of filing bankruptcy was going to be a difficult one. However, Gingold & Gingold treated me with respect and dignity from the moment I walked through their door. I had the pleasure of working with Jamie. She is very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. She took the time and listened to my every concern and handled each and every one of them to my satisfaction. My experience with filing bankruptcy under Gingold & Gingold's representation exceeded my expectations in a major way. They gave me such a peace of mind. I am very pleased with my decision of going with Gingold & Gingold to represent me when I filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

    Wow! I am finally out of debt and can say that I am debt free after completing my chapter 7 bankruptcy case with Gingold and Gingold. Mr dangled was very knowledgeable and direct with regard to my debt situation. there were no surprises and the case went as I was advised. The staff was also very helpful whenever I had a question. I will definitely recommend them in the future to my friends.

    I contacted getting old and getting old regarding some old tax debt and credit card debt that I needed to address and had been putting off. miss Irving in the office was very very nice and put me at ease. I met with Jaime Gingold. She was very nice and explained the procedure to me and what would be left owing to the Internal Revenue Service and the State of Georgia after my case was done. My case has now been completed and I am on my way to a new start. Thank you Gingold and Gingold for all of your help.
