Bankruptcy - California

Unmanageable credit card debts, coupled with an unstable economy, have left many residents in California in financial distress and possibly considering bankruptcy. If you are also overburdened with high-interest credit card debts and looking for relief, you can breathe a little easier because there are many ways to get debt relief without bankruptcy - including debt consolidation through credit counseling and debt settlement.

Both of these options have become popular alternatives to bankruptcy, in part, due to the fact that the impact to personal credit by using either debt consolidation or debt settlement is not nearly as damaging or long lasting as if you declared bankruptcy. If you want to find out how much you can potentially save by either consolidating your debts, or through debt settlement, request a free debt relief analysis and savings estimate.

An Alternative to Bankruptcy - Debt Consolidation

Many consumers like you who are struggling with credit card debts, as well as other types of unsecured debts (such as medical bills, department store charges, or utilities) have a wealth of debt relief options to choose from other than bankruptcy, regardless of whether you qualify for a Chapter 7 (known as straight or liquidation bankruptcy), Chapter 11 (reorganization of debts), or even Chapter 13 bankruptcy (debt adjustment).

As noted earlier, one viable option is debt consolidation, or a debt management plan (DMP). The goal of debt consolidation is to provide consumers with a single, more manageable, and more structured payment plan made to a credit counseling agency. Credit counselors, initially, will make an assessment of your financial situation, including the amount of your credit card debts and your ability to pay off those debts. Then, they typically develop a game plan to help reduce your credit card debts. Working on your behalf, your credit counselor will normally submit proposals to your creditors requesting reduced interest rates, or the waiving of any late fees and penalties.

Creditors that agree to those proposals are then placed into the debt management plan. An account is generally set up from where the credit counseling agency draws money to distribute to the various creditors in the debt management plan. With a new, more affordable and more structured repayment plan in place, you can, ideally, direct more of your payment towards paying off the principal balance on your credit cards versus just the interest. If you want to find out how much you can potentially save every month by consolidating your debts, answer a few questions to get a free debt relief analysis and savings estimate. Begin here.

Understanding Debt Settlement as an Alternative To Bankruptcy

Another proven debt relief option for many consumers is debt settlement. Unlike debt consolidation where you pay all of your debts, just at lower interest rates - with debt settlement, you are hoping to settle for substantially less than what you actually owe. However, as the term "settlement" suggests, creditors are certainly not legally required to accept the settlement proposal. Many consumers are typically advised to stop paying on their credit cards in order to save up funds, over an extended period, that they can later use to make a reasonable settlement offer to creditors. In these cases, creditors may threaten to sue consumers who default on the terms of their credit card agreement. Plus, those who default on the terms of their credit card agreement may see their credit scores decline.

However, in spite of the risk of getting sued or the impact to their credit score, many consumers still consider debt settlement a popular alternative to bankruptcy - which, as mentioned earlier, can have a more devastating and longer lasting effect on personal credit. That's why it is a smart move to explore all your debt relief options and take the time to understand all their pros and cons.
