Alternatives To Bankruptcy: Learn About Your Options
Most people want to avoid filing bankruptcy. Unfortunately, many people attempt to avoid bankruptcy simply by ignoring the problem. They may review some alternatives to bankruptcy, but without a skilled professional on their side, they ultimately end up with the same debt loads and the same struggles.
Just because you want to avoid bankruptcy does not mean you should avoid talking to an attorney. At the Arkansas law firm of Robertson, Oswalt & Associates, you have an opportunity to talk with a lawyer during a free initial consultation. This is your chance to find out about bankruptcy and other debt relief solutions.
Know Your Debt Relief Options
Our lawyers will conduct a thorough analysis of your situation to help you understand all of your options. Many people come to us with questions about loan modification. Depending on the situation, modifying your mortgage or another loan may be beneficial. If it is a possibility, we will educate you about how to move forward with this step.
In some cases, debt can be resolved and bankruptcy can be avoided by addressing a discrepancy between income and expenses. For example, many people come to us because they have been threatened with foreclosure. Sometimes, foreclosure can be prevented and it may make sense to do so. Other times, the home simply does not match the person’s current income level. By selling the home in a short sale and purchasing a different home that is within the person’s means, long-term debt relief is achieved.
While we recognize that people want to avoid bankruptcy, we also believe that it is a valuable debt relief option. Many people fear bankruptcy because they do not understand it. If we believe that bankruptcy is truly the right option for you, we will recommend it, but only if it makes sense based on your financial situation.
Avoid Debt Consolidation Scams
You may have seen advertisements for debt consolidation companies that promise to help you gain control of your finances. Please recognize that these are typically not legal organizations. They do not have the strength of the law behind them, and many of them are not truly able to fulfill their promises.
Too often, we meet people who ended up in worse financial situations than they were in before they worked with a debt consolidation company. We encourage you to talk to us first.
