If you have been thinking about getting out of your current financial situation, then bankruptcy will be your best policy – especially if you are not making necessary payments each month.
Even if you can prove to the creditors that you are making sufficient monthly payments to take advantage of the bankruptcy provision, you still want to get another job or to change your existing lease. There is still a great deal of stigma attached with bankruptcy.
However, what many may not know is that bankruptcy is not typically a bad thing after all!
If you are not able to make sufficient payment on your mortgage, automobile, or other property each month then doing nothing for the next few months could cause you to be declared a bankrupt within a few years.
This is because when an individual file bankruptcy there is almost always a chance that it will take effect within that few year – period; so the chances of successfully rebuilding or rebuilding your life in the near future are much better.
If you actually feel that you have made sufficient progress in establishing credit and are able to pay your mortgage, auto, clothing, and/or other monthly payments, then you are lucky.
The bottom line, though, is that filing for bankruptcy is not that bad a decision.
Another fact is that getting out of debt can be easier than ever. Your family can help you. Unfortunately there is a stigma attached with bankruptcy filing and getting out of debt.
But do not allow your creditors to make it worse than they already are. Try getting another job or taking a leave of absence from your job to deal with your creditors.
Your creditors can help you stay in the act of getting out of debts. However, never attempt to do so. The last thing you hope for is for your creditors to try and get you out when you cannot.
Finally, try trying to negotiate a better repayment plan with your creditors. Ask your creditor if you can discuss options such as a late payment fee, on the past due date or either a grace period or installment payment. If you are unable to find a solution than you better make sure to stop at nothing to make sure your company can also work on getting on the other financial path that your creditors may make you take.
One last point here can assist you. Although you may think that financial counselors are all of a sudden trying to win you over to their side, all of the counseling services that you and your family and friends may be calling are actually doing is easing pressure on your creditors to allow you to join them. This, again, is not helping anything either.
Hopefully, you have found the right path forward to overcome your current financial situation, which is what has put you in the position you are today.
Paying Real Time On Your Credit Card Debt
What is the purpose of your credit card? Well really according to some of the most popular theories put forward by the credit card firms and credit card companies. The purpose, however, is not clear cut and people have been claiming that their credit cards are a form of control or pressure. At the moment the purpose of your credit card is to withdraw your cash and withdraw the interest. This is the purpose behind the plastic and the bill that you have been paying for weeks to be repaid. Another theory claims that your credit card is a way of making you look bad to your creditors, which they claim is a deterrent for getting the money back. Unfortunately most of the things listed above just apply to you as if your creditors were actually looking at your performance, which is usually not the intention of the credit card lenders or banks. Credit card debt will always be there in the form of bills, unpaid medical bills, missed telephone payments, and even the loss of an unfortunate job if you continue to do nothing to repay them. Many of the credit card companies will even go through your old monthly statement for every unpaid statement, so that you will have to re-check them even if no statement has been paid in the last two weeks. If you ever make a payment and miss the scheduled allowance, then you will have a bill from late April, with interest being 2.5% of your debt. This is a very tempting thing to do and it certainly sounds good on the statement. Also, is there a point when you are writing a check on one of your cards but then realize that you cannot pay it off due to the late payment or the debt collectors cannot be there to help you? Well you would be surprised at the number of cards that come in the mail informing you that you cannot pay off your bill. The point I am trying to make here is that if you are even aware of how other institutions handle your credit card debt then this is something that you should take a close look at.
