Bankruptcy Legal Questions and Answers

Bankruptcy

Debt Settlement Agreement

New York

Asked on Jul 15, 2023

Debt settlement agreement vs. bankruptcy?

I am currently in a difficult financial situation and am looking at my options to get out of debt. I am considering both a debt settlement agreement and filing for bankruptcy, but am not sure which option is best for my situation. I am hoping to get advice from a lawyer regarding the pros and cons of each option, so that I can make an informed decision.

Jeffrey Z.

Answered Aug 15, 2023

Bankruptcy is a very large part of my practice. I have had many clients that have attempted to use a debt resolution service without success. Unfortunately, they often pay a substantial amount of money to the service, their debts do not get resolved, they end up in bankruptcy anyway, and they do not get their money back. Aside from the difficulties in successfully completing a debt settlement agreement, there is also a tax issue. Forgiven debt is considered taxable income. You will receive a 1099 from any creditor that accepted a reduced amount to satisfy a debt. The result may be an income tax liability that you were not expecting. Debts that are discharged in bankruptcy are not counted as income.

Contracts Counsel was incredibly helpful and easy to use. I submitted a project for a lawyer's help within a day I had received over 6 proposals from qualified lawyers. I submitted a bid that works best for my business and we went forward with the project.

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.

I got 5 bids within 24h of posting my project. I choose the person who provided the most detailed and relevant intro letter, highlighting their experience relevant to my project. I am very satisfied with the outcome and quality of the two agreements that were produced, they actually far exceed my expectations.
