Here are your options

Pros and Cons


Option 1 – Bankruptcy

  • Negative credit report for ten years
  • BK-13 may require the pay back of principle amounts borrowed over a five year period
  • Attorney fees to file BK typically range between $2,000 and $5,000
  • Must qualify for bankruptcy. With new regulations, bankruptcy has become increasingly difficult

Option 2 – Debt Management / Consumer Credit Counseling

  • Negative credit report for 7 years
  • Usually requires 100% pay back of principle amounts and usually some interest
  • Fees for the program are generally split between the lender and the consumer
  • Typical payment for $40,000 of unsecured debt would be in the $1,000 range up to 5 years

Option 3 – Do Nothing

  • Negative credit forever, debt to income ratios and high utilization of revolving debt will prevent the ability to use credit at all
  • Interest continues to accrue causing the balances to continually increase
  • The cost of never ever being able to re-enter the credit system as average payoffs on unsecured debt ranges between 20 - 30 years if just making minimums or even more than minimums

Option 4 – Debt refinement

  • Can potentially adversely affect credit
  • Payment plans only last 18-48 months by which time the consumer is debt free and protected from any further collection efforts by the creditor
  • Typical payment on $40,000 of unsecured debt is in the $569-$750 range for 3-4 years
  • Monthly payment includes all fees - no additional out of pocket expenses from consumer
  • Access to account in the case of an emergency and borrow or withdraw cash without a penalty
  • No prepayment penalties 

Option 5 - Consolidation Loan

  • Lower interest rates than credit cards
  • Ability to consolidate credit card payments into one monthly payment
  • Ability to lower the monthly payment
  • Lengthy and cumbersome application process
