Have you ever felt helpless concerning your financial problems? Are you looking for ways to get out of your current financial situation? You are not alone! Millions of people all around the globe are experiencing the same thing. Others might say the best and easiest way to be free from debt is filing bankruptcy. But what is the real truth regarding bankruptcy? Here are some truths you should be aware of.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is one type of bankruptcy available today. It offers some benefits like clearing out your unsecured debts. However, you are required to sell your assets to pay any remaining balances. This is a tremendous disadvantage of chapter 7 bankruptcy because you are not allowed to decide what to do with your remaining assets. Instead, the court will seize control and make decisions they think are best to resolve any debts.
This process usually does not work in favor of the debtor. Filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy is also very difficult because of the new laws implemented in 2005. In most cases, it is impossible to even qualify for because of the complexity of the process. To avoid wasting your time, and money, it is best to look for other effective options.
On a different note, Chapter 13 bankruptcy is easier to qualify for. This is another type of bankruptcy which will also take over the control of your finances and assets.
True, the people in the courts might have more knowledge and experience in handling these sort of matters, but no one wants to give away their rights, power, and money to someone else. You will also be obligated to pay them for these “services” and will be bound to pay them regardless of the turnout. Is this the kind of solution you want?
There is a better option to be free from debt. Get disciplined with your finances and watch every penny you spend. And if you need help, consult with a certified debt counselor. Using a knowledgeable and experienced service provider to guide and assist you can be a great ally in your battle against debt.
This process allows you to learn and gain full control of your finances and offers step-by-step counseling, techniques, and materials to guide you out of your financial troubles. This gives you a long-term solution for debt resolution not just a “quick fix” that will haunt you and your credit for years to come.
Additional options to explore are debt consolidation: a process in which all your debts can be consolidated under one convenient monthly bill.
And debt settlement: a process in which your overall debt can be negotiated typically up to 50% to enable you to pay off the debt in full.
