Will a Private Workout Work for You?

March 17, 2013

If you’re facing financial distress, you may be considering whether you should file personal bankruptcy or attempt a private workout with your creditors. In some cases, a private workout isn’t possible because your creditors simply refuse to negotiate with you. In other situations, a personal bankruptcy isn’t an option because you’ve already filed within the seven-year period following a prior bankruptcy discharge.

 

Notwithstanding these considerations, more often than not, debtors have a choice. If this is a choice you’re facing, it may be wise to speak with the dedicated bankruptcy and insolvency lawyers at Fears Nachawati. With years of experience advising clients just like you and your family, we know how to address your fears, ease your concerns, and advise you of your legal and financial interests.

 

A private workout has advantages. Compared to a personal bankruptcy, a private workout can take place quickly and without the hassle and expense of litigation. Similarly, because the parties can speak to one another more directly and define their own needs, a debtor and his creditors may consider options that may not be available otherwise.

 

Of course, a Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 bankruptcy has its advantages, too. By availing himself of the Bankruptcy Code, a debtor may operate within its protections. Interest on pre-petition debts will stop accruing. The automatic stay will prevent collection efforts by harassing institutions. State law exemptions, such as Texas’s generous homestead exemption, may allow a debtor to shelter valuable assets from creditors.

 

Each situation is unique. Your legal affairs deserve the personal attention and experienced qualifications that our team provides. Contact our professionals today to learn how we can help you as your move toward financial solvency and certainty.
