"Bankruptcy should be avoided if at all possible"
Beverly, MA (PRWEB) October 29, 2014
“Bankruptcy should be avoided if at all possible” according to Shannon MacLean, vice president of S&N Debt Solutions. “While there are some advantages, such as the elimination of most debts and creditor legal action, we believe that debt negotiation and settlement of credit cards may make it possible to side-step the need for bankruptcy.”
The disadvantages of bankruptcy are obvious. MacLean described it this way, “Bankruptcy can remain on a person’s credit report for up to ten years. A person must also stay current on a home mortgage or car loan because if they don’t the assets can be lost.”
Among the less obvious reasons to avoid bankruptcy is that it may effect a person’s future employment. MacLean illustrated it this way; “If a person is applying for a sensitive financial position such as an accountant, many employers will not hire them if they have filed for bankruptcy. In addition, that person may not qualify for certain surety bonds.”
The better alternative to bankruptcy is credit card debt settlement. The reason for this is that most people who have gotten themselves into financial difficulty have done it by running-up large amounts of credit card debt. Shannon MacLean pointed it out this way, “When we analyze our client’s financial statements, we clearly see that most of their trouble comes from overusing and in some cases abusing their credit cards.”
MacLean left us with this parting thought, “What we help our clients do is to reevaluate their behavior and counsel them during the credit card debt settlement period. Obviously, we never want S&N clients to get back into financial trouble again. And, most important, we want them to never have to declare bankruptcy.”
S&N Debt Solutions also recommends that anyone thinking about filing bankruptcy should meet with a qualified legal professional in order to learn about all of the issues that may impact their lives.
