Why Bankruptcy Over Debt Consolidation?
Unlike debt consolidation, Chapter 7 bankruptcy can completely eliminate liability to pay all dischargeable debt. In debt consolidation, you still end up paying creditors at least something. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is preferable to this because you are allowed to enter a payment plan you negotiated for and the actual debt does not increase. However, with debt consolidation, creditors can continue to add late charges and interest. In addition, Chapter 13 is normally limited to a three- to five-year term, but a debt consolidation repayment plan can be stretched out for years longer.
Debt consolidators rely almost solely on negotiations with creditors. Deals can fall through and there is less stability. Furthermore, if an agreement is eventually made, not all of the creditors are required to participate in the debt consolidation. This is because it is completely voluntary. Under Chapter 13 bankruptcy, creditors are required to be part of the repayment plan.
