Bankruptcy Consultation

Individuals who are unable to meet their debt obligations can file for bankruptcy under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (Canada). This process can be stressful. We have the expertise to guide individuals through the process and make sure that you understand your rights. 

What are the main benefits of personal bankruptcy?

  • You’ll have relief from all of your creditors.  If you’re this deep in debt, your creditors have probably been harassing you for payments for a long time. When you file for bankruptcy, your trustee will see that you no longer have to worry about or deal with your creditors directly. You may also benefit from the termination of wage garnishment, if applicable. In short, you can start over.
  • You’ll have consolidated all of your debt payments. Your wallet and budget won’t be strained every which way, because you’ll have only one payment and one set interest rate to deal with. The bankruptcy process is designed to get you back on your feet more quickly, relieving you of financial stress.

Why is an insolvency trustee required?

Your trustee will handle all aspects of the bankruptcy process on your behalf.

  • Drafting legal documentation
  • Dealing with creditors
  • Setting personal budget and payment schedule
  • Distributing assets

During The Process

If bankruptcy is the right solution,  you are now on a course to a better situation.  Once your bankruptcy documents are filed, you will continue to work with your Trustee in Bankruptcy to understand  your entire income to set a personal budget for you and meet your debt obligations.  This means that, until your debts are met, your financial flexibility may be limited.  This can be challenging for some, but it is imperative to meet your obligations and discharge your bankruptcy as soon as possible.

Many people that ultimately go this route do feel relief once they make the decision to begin the bankruptcy filing process.
