Debt Relief Options Without Damage To Your Credit
Many Wisconsin residents struggling with their finances resist the option of bankruptcy because they worry about damaging their credit rating. If bankruptcy is still not an attractive choice, another option exists to reorganize your debt without an actual bankruptcy showing up on your credit report.
At the Helbing Law Office, LLC, we can inform you about a little-known alternative exclusive to the state of Wisconsin: a Section 128 filing.
Since many people are not aware of Section 128, we strive to educate and encourage clients to look at this option. It is possible to enter a payment plan with all of your creditors and keep your credit score intact. Contact attorney Timothy J. Helbing at our Appleton office by calling 920-659-5606 or contacting us online.
The Alternative You Need During Tough Financial Times
Section 128 is similar to a Chapter 13 debt repayment plan: You have three years to pay off 100% of your credit card and medical debts. For those with a smaller debt load, this type of debt settlement is sometimes the best option. Most of the institutions you owe will not report to a credit agency, and no reporting means no damage to your credit.
There are upsides and downsides to the Section 128 option. The repayment time is shorter and the debts cannot be reduced or discharged. However, the more affordable process still allows you to stop collection actions and harassing telephone calls.
