Getting a bankruptcy loan, sometimes known as a consolidation loan, can be a wise alternative to filing for bankruptcy. It can save people from dealing with the black mark of bankruptcy on their credit for a full ten years. Bankruptcy is not the best option for everyone, and getting a consolidation loan, if possible, is nearly always preferable.
Sometimes filing bankruptcy is the answer, sometimes it’s not. Bankruptcies can relieve a family of a lot of debt. Sometimes, however a bankruptcy cannot be filed, either because the individual or family in question has filed bankruptcy previously, or because the request to file is turned down by the court for another reason. 1 Bankruptcy & Loans Alternative found at this website offer helpful information concerning bankruptcy and consolidation as an alternative. They list some of the things that are not allowed to be discharged:
- Alimony & child support
- Back taxes and student loans
- Recent purchases for substantial amounts
- Property involving titles or liens
If your debt consists mostly, or even substantially, of any of these items, don’t file. Consider a bankruptcy loan for consolidation.
Remember, filing for bankruptcy has a big downside. A bankruptcy remains on your credit for up to ten years, while the worst credit error other than bankruptcy can only remain on your record for up to seven. Your credit record is the single most important factor in determining what credit you can obtain, and what the interest rate on that credit will be. If you file a bankruptcy, kiss any chances of purchasing a home or car in the near future good bye
“So if I can’t eliminate my debt,” you may be asking, “what can I do?” Reduce your monthly debt payments by up to 50% by consolidating your bills into one monthly payment with a lower interest rate, through a bankruptcy loan. If any of your debt is in the form of credit card bills, your rate is almost certainly over 10% and possibly over 20%. You’ll be surprised how quickly that pile of debt shrinks when the interest rate is significantly lowered. Get out of debt, and do so in a timely manner. Remember, the sooner you pay it off, that’s that much less time spent paying interest into your creditors’ pockets. You have better things to do with your money.
