Debt Consolidation Vs. Debt Negotiation

If you want to take care of your debts once and for all, you may be weighing two options, debt consolidation versus debt negotiation. Understanding the key differences between them can make a significant difference in your short- and long-term financial situation.

When you opt for debt consolidation, you are essentially taking out a larger loan from a third party, usually a bank, to pay off all of your creditors. Rather than paying each of your creditors individually, you will only have your bank loan to pay back. If you are already having difficulty creating a monthly budget to manage your household expenses and mounting loans, debt consolidation could be the answer.

However, if your creditors learn that you will soon file for bankruptcy, your creditors may decide to offer you a negotiation package. Should your bankruptcy case go through, their debts could be completely wiped out along with it, making it an incentive for them to offer you a good deal on your current loans.

If you would like additional information about yourdebt relief options, contact our firm and enlist the help of a Chicago bankruptcy lawyer.
