Wisconsin Chapter 128 Reorganize Debt
Chapter 128 is an appealing alternative to bankruptcy if you are struggling with debts such as payday loans, credit cards, medical bills, and other unsecured debts. Ch. 128 is a non-bankruptcy debt consolidation repayment plan through the Wisconsin court system. Debts are reorganized and repaid, interest free, over a 36-month period. It’s important to note that mortgages, car loans and student loans cannot be included in a Chapter 128. Similar to bankruptcy, you must qualify for Chapter 128. You must be employed or have a steady source of income to fund the consolidation. But, this voluntary debt consolidation plan costs less than a bankruptcy and does not require credit counseling.
Why Credit Counseling May Help
Credit counseling is an educational option that covers topics such as debt management, consumer credit, budgeting, and debt management. It is designed for folks who struggle with managing finances and paying off debts. The counseling programs are provided by a range of providers. You will want to confirm that you select a reputable non-profit organization. Credit counseling can be used to prevent bankruptcy. If you are trying to determine if bankruptcy is necessary, credit counseling can provide you with the insight to make an informed decision. When filing bankruptcy, credit counseling remains a requirement. Credit counseling can also help prevent future bankruptcies.
Option To Negotiate Debt
Debt Advisors Law Offices offers effective, reliable debt negotiation to our clients that do not want to file for relief under the bankruptcy code. Settling debt with your creditors may result in a significant reduction in the amount of debt you owe. Debt negotiation involves our attorneys negotiating a client’s debt down to a payoff balance that both the client and creditor find acceptable. We are transparent in regard to the likelihood that debt negotiation will succeed as well as the fees involved.
