Choosing between debt repayment plans and bankruptcy

There are a lot of people in New Jersey who are struggling with credit card debt that they can no longer afford to make payments on. While many people think that consolidating all of their credit card debt in order to pay it off quickly is a better solution than filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, this alternative can actually end up costing a lot more money in the long term.

Some student loans can be discharged in bankruptcy

Many people in New Jersey with debt problems are dealing with student loans taken out from private lenders that they cannot afford to pay back. Although there is a popular belief that these types of obligations cannot be discharged in bankruptcy, this is not entirely accurate. In fact, it may only take a person about 90 days to have many types of private student loans discharged in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
