A Consumer Proposal is a legally binding agreement offered by the federal government that significantly reduces the amount of debt you owe to your creditors. A consumer proposal is a popular alternative to bankruptcy as it consolidates and reduces the total amount of debt you owe, stops accumulating interest charges, stops wage garnishment, stops legal action, provides relief from collection calls and allows you to keep your assets.
At David Sklar & Associates we will help you every step of the way through the proposal process to present the best offer possible to your creditors. After your proposal is accepted by your creditors you will be asked to make monthly payments for up to 5 years, that are based on your income, expenses, assets and what you can afford to pay. The proposal is a fair solution for everyone involved. Speak to our Licensed Insolvency Trustee in Hamilton first to understand all of your options.
We understand that most of the people we help never imagined they would find themselves in such a difficult financial crisis. Most of the people we work with tend to be hard-working, honest people who, often for reasons beyond their control, are simply not able to pay back their debts.
Before we recommend personal bankruptcy, we work closely with you to see if any other debt repayment options can be used as an alternative, like a Consumer Proposal. Only when we are satisfied that personal bankruptcy is in your best interest, do we recommend this process.

We’ve all seen the ads claiming how a debt consolidation loans can get you out of financial trouble and reduce your monthly payments. Yet, you should know there can be significant risks with this approach.
If you have missed even one payment or received a collection call, it may be too late to qualify for a bank loan. To get a debt consolidation loan from a bank, you will need a spotless credit history, steady income, equity in your home or a co-signer.
If you use the equity in your home and are unable to make the payments, you could lose your home. Frequently, people who take out debt consolidation loans don’t know about the hidden high interest fees and find themselves in even more debt than before.
