Navigating Debt: Options Before Bankruptcy

Back to Blog >

Dealing with debt can be a challenging journey, but bankruptcy is not the only path. In this blog post, we’ll discuss three debt resolution options – debt management, debt settlement, and debt consolidation – along with some pros and cons of each.

1. Debt Management:  Balancing the Scales

Definition: Debt management involves working with a credit counseling agency to create a budget and payment plan, often at reduced interest rates.

Structured repayment planMay take several years to complete
Professional guidanceEnrollment may impact credit score
2. Debt Settlement: Negotiating for a New Landscape

Definition: Debt settlement involves negotiating with creditors to settle debts for less than the total owed. Debt settlement companies have experience negotiating debt with financial institutions, but charge fees based on the total debt enrolled.

Potential for reduced total debtRequires loan default; will impact credit score
Faster resolution than debt managementMay result in lawsuits and tax consequences
3. Debt Consolidation: Merging Debts for Simplicity

Definition: Debt consolidation combines multiple debts into a single loan or payment by taking out a new loan and using the proceeds to pay off your debt.
