    Danger signs of bankruptcy

    If you think you might be on the edge of filing for bankruptcy then denying it’s a problem, will only make the situation worse. There’s always a solution that we can find to resolve your situation but first, you need to ask yourself some difficult questions:

    – Do you have to use credit cards to pay for everything?

    – Can you only pay the minimum monthly amount on your credit card(s)?

    – Are you constantly borrowing money?

    – Have you had final demand letters from your creditors?

    – Have your creditors sold your debt or placed your account with a collection agency?

    – Are you having sleepless nights worrying about paying your debts?

    – Is your mood being affected by stress brought on by your debts?

    If you recognize any of these signs in your own life then bankruptcy may be imminent. It’s so easy to acquire a large amount of debt when you’re faced with house payments, car payments, student loans and the generally high cost of living, so if your finances have gotten out of control, reel them back in with the help of a Harris & Partners Licensed Trustee.

    Frequently asked questions

    What is a consumer proposal?

    Bankruptcy is considered a last resort as it comes with many restrictions that make it difficult to apply for new credit. The most popular alternative to bankruptcy is a consumer proposal.  

    We’ll help you to negotiate with your creditors for a reduced payment, which means you’ll only pay back a portion of your debts and your creditors will write the rest off. Once the consumer proposal is in place, your creditors are legally not allowed to contact you for more than you’ve agreed, giving you more disposable income each month and a release from the worry of unmanageable debt. 

    Contact Harris & Partners Inc. in Nova Scotia today to learn more about consumer proposals.
