Filing for bankruptcy can provide immediate debt relief

We understand that the thought of filing for bankruptcy can create considerable stress for those considering this decision. If you’re struggling with debt, however, it is important to know that bankruptcy is not the only solution. A Licensed Insolvency Trustee (LIT) will explain every option available to you and help you choose the best solution for your financial situation. With that said, in some situations bankruptcy can be the most effective solution. This may be the case for you if the following applies:

  • You currently owe more money to creditors than you earn
  • You’re unable to pay bills or make monthly debt payments without using more credit
  • You’re having your wages garnished by one or more creditors
  • You’re seeking immediate relief from debt and a fresh start financially

If your debt has become unmanageable, and you’re struggling to pay bills, you can request a call from a Licensed Insolvency Trustee who will discuss filing for bankruptcy and other possible alternatives.
