Debt Consolidation vs. Settlement
Queens Bankruptcy Attorney
Debt consolidation and debt settlement are alternatives to bankruptcy that should be explored before deciding how to resolve your financial problems. Debt consolidation is a method of
eliminating your bills by acquiring a large loan to pay off smaller bills. Although the loan is usually secured, the interest rates are typically lower than what a person is currently paying. The benefits of debt consolidation include only making one payment per month and reduced interest rates.
Debt settlement involves negotiating with creditors to reduce the amount of money you owe and, once a settlement has been reached, paying off the new balance in full. Some of the advantages to debt settlement are:
- A reduction in the total amount of money owed
- Lower interest rates
- Accrued interest reduced or eliminated
Which solution is right for you will depend on many factors, including your ability to acquire a secured loan or pay off a percentage of your unsecured debts after a settlement has been negotiated. Seeking advice from a Queens bankruptcy lawyer can make the decision-making process easier and ensure that you chose the best possible remedy. If consolidation or settlement isn't an option, an attorney can discuss other alternatives that can help you eliminate your debts.
