Debt Restructure (Best Option)

Debt Restructure, or Debt Negotiation, as it is sometime referred to, is the process of negotiating with a creditor or debt collector to pay less than the full amount owed. By paying less than the full balance you owe on an account to satisfy the debt, you are able to become debt free in a shorter period of time.

Pros

  • Skilled strategists and negotiators are working on your behalf
  • Provide immediate payment relief
  • Be free of enrolled debt in under 4 years

Cons

  • Prevents the use of enrolled credit cards
  • Could adversely affect your credit worthiness
  • May temporarily increase the amount owed due to the accrual of fees and interest
Bankruptcy

  • Debt obligation could be cleared
  • Creditors are barred from attempting to collect on debts
  • Process takes only 3-6 months

Cons

  • Significant, long-term damage to credit
  • Loss of all credit cards
  • Chapter 7 can be difficult to qualify for

  • Gradually reducing debt
  • No negative impact on your credit

Cons

  • High monthly payments
  • High-interest rates
  • High levels of debt can hurt your credit over time
  • Very long pay off time frame
  • Could pay 2 to 3 times the amount originally charged
