Debt can be overwhelming. For that reason, our Licensed Insolvency Trustees are always here for you. let’s discuss the options available to you. Your debt-free future starts now.
Debt, like most problems, usually has more than one solution. And while this may seem like a good thing, it can make it harder to find the solution that's best for you.
Almost everyone would agree they would like to be debt free as quickly as possible. But that might require large monthly payments that leave little breathing room in their budget. Most would also like to pay as little as possible to resolve their debt. But what if that means giving up their house or doing significant damage to their credit rating?
Experience tells me the overwhelming anxiety of choosing a path to becoming debt free can be just as (if not more) stressful than the debt itself. When every option seems like it could be the right (or wrong) one, it can be exceedingly difficult to determine which is best. Indecision can also contribute to procrastination in dealing with your debt, which usually makes things worse.
To paraphrase nearly every client who comes to me for a Free Confidential Consultation, how do you know you're making the right call?
Every debtor is different and so are their situations. What works for one person will not necessarily be appropriate for another. The good news is, there are steps you can take to narrow down your options. It starts with answering the following questions:
By working in absolutes, you remove much of the ambiguity from your decision making. While there may be three options that get you out of debt quickly, there is only one that gets you there the quickest. Some may be less expensive than others, but only one is the least expensive, and so on. Once you have these answers in hand, you will likely notice your indecision begin to dissipate.
In a perfect world, the answers to these questions would all be complimentary. But that's not always the case. For example, filing a bankruptcy can often be the least expensive option and have the added benefit of getting out of debt quickly. Unfortunately, you may not be allowed to keep certain assets and you will likely need to do a lot to rebuild your credit rating once you are discharged.
You will need to prioritize each question in an order that's most important to you. If you've been in debt for a long time and cannot stand it any longer, getting out of debt quickly may be your most important goal. If your monthly budget is already tight, you may want to focus on maximizing cashflow. Work through each option until each has a clear ranking.
You may notice your top three priorities compliment one another, and thus makes your decision obvious. You may also notice they all conflict with one another, which may mean some deeper reflection and helpful advice are required.
