Debt solutions

In a money fix and need a debt solution? We’re here to help.

Caught in a whirlpool of debt?

Life can get downright stressful when you’re caught in a whirlpool of debt.

You may be working hard but are still not able to save anything, if most or all that you earn goes to paying outstanding debts. To keep your head above water you may turn to borrowing, but this only increases what you owe and the interest you need to pay.

Ongoing financial difficulties can lead to stress, headaches, sleepless nights and even family conflicts. The added stress of your creditors knocking at your door, demanding their money can make life pretty miserable.

If you feel like money troubles are causing your bright vision of the future to fade, our debt solutions can help you.

Giving yourself a hard time about being in debt?

You shouldn't. Falling into debt is something that’s extremely easy to do, especially if you don’t have a financial background or any financial counselling. It’s even easier to fall into debt when your life’s plans go off track without any warning.

You may have needed to take out credit or large loans because you have:

  • Suddenly lost your job.
  • Serious health issues that have put you in bed, unable to work.
  • Broken up with your partner. Now your total household income is less than half of what it used to be.
  • Increasing rent that's becoming unmanageable.
  • A mortgage that just escalated because of an interest rate rise.

If you’re in debt and giving yourself a hard time, just remember you’re not the only one financially stuck and looking for debt solutions.

Across the country, Aussies owe:

  • $33.9 billion in combined credit card debt.

    These credit card balances are accruing interest, putting Aussies into even more debt (moneysmart.gov.au 2014).

  • $1.84 trillion in household debt.

    More than half of Australian household debts are made up of mortgage loans.

Debt solutions for worst-case scenarios

If you’re unable to pay off debts on time because you’re in too deep, you’re legally defined as insolvent. We know how stressful and overwhelming life can be when you’re insolvent. But if you’re desperate and looking for a debt solution to relieve financial stress, you’re going to need help. 

We can help you to:

  • icon

    Arrange a formal debt agreement

    A formal debt agreement lets you pay your creditors a sum you can afford at time intervals that work for everyone.

     

    Entering into such an agreement means creating a legally binding arrangement with your credit providers.
     

  • icon

    File for bankruptcy

    Putting the legal paperwork together to declare to your creditors that you're unable to afford the repayments on your credit products.

     

    By doing so we’ll be able to help to release you from most of your debts.

While these two acts of insolvency may sound attractive, they’re for worst-case scenarios only. There can be serious consequences and legal ramifications for both these options.
