Taking the non-bankruptcy route might be best for you and there are many possible alternatives to filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13. The decision to avoid bankruptcy may allow you to keep your possessions – your house and car, for example – and it may make rebuilding your credit faster and easier.
Debt Negotiation: When a creditor knows you are represented by a lawyer, it’s a sign that you are seriously looking to manage your debt. Further, the last thing an unsecured creditor wants is for you to file for bankruptcy; they will get nothing. When an experienced bankruptcy lawyer like Mr. Spivack contacts a creditor on your behalf, he can negotiate a payment plan you can live with. In turn, you can start getting your head above water without the harassing collection calls.
Debt Settlement: Piggy-backing on the “creditors hate bankruptcy” theme, they are often willing to settle debt for less than what is owed. Something is better than nothing, right? Mr. Spivack will negotiate with your creditors to get them to agree to a settlement plan in which you pay back a portion of what you owe with the agreement that the rest of the debt will be forgiven and your account will be marked “closed.”
Debt Consolidation: Simply put, when all of your debts (most or even some of them) are combined, you can pay back what you owe in smaller amounts over a longer period of time. To do this effectively, you will need to take out a loan at a low interest rate. Mr. Spivack can assist you with this process so you are able to successfully consolidate your debt and not get you into further hot water than you are today. In some cases, you can use your home as collateral and take out a low-interest home equity loan. You use the loan money to pay back your various debts (the ones with high interest rates!) and you make one payment going forward on the new loan.
