Alternatives to Bankruptcy in South Carolina

It's possible that you may not need to claim bankruptcy. Often times creditors will be willing to work with you under a debt repayment plan or even offer you a deal to pay off a percentage of the loan and call it even.

You also could be eligible for a Debt Consolidation Loan. Under this scenario you attempt to secure a loan to pay off all creditors. Now you would have everything consolidated into one monthly payment.

So is Bankruptcy my best option?

In our one-on-one consultation at my law office in Charleston South Carolina, we will discuss in broad terms your current income, your outstanding debts and your current monthly expenses to determine whether filing for bankruptcy would ultimately help you toward your financial goals. If bankruptcy is a viable option for you, as your bankruptcy attorney, I will do a ”Means Test” to determine whether you qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy or whether Chapter 13 bankruptcy would better suit your needs.
