Hi ... I met with Trina at the Pickering Office of David Sklar, abouttwo month's ago. I was very worried about my financial situation,since I was unable to keep up with my bills. Trina was incrediblyhelpful, and assured me that everything will be fine. She offereddifferent options that were available to me, and did this in a verysoft, compassionate way. I never felt pressured, or rushed duringthis consultation. After discussing my concerns, and having Trinaanswer many questions that I had, I chose the best option that Ifelt was best for me. Now, two month's later, Trina is there for meany time I have a question to be answered. Everything is goingexactly as I had hoped. I would highly recommend Trina to anyperson going through financial difficulties, since her experiencewill definitely help you resolve your situation. She is there for youevery step of the way .

Consumer Proposal – Pickering

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 Pickering first to understand all of your options.

Personal Bankruptcy – Pickering

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. Speak to our Licensed Insolvency Trustee in Pickering first to understand all of your options.

Debt Consolidation – Pickering

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.

Speak to our Licensed Insolvency Trustee in Pickering first to understand all of your options.

Income Tax Debt

Income Tax debt can be a difficult challenge to overcome. Our Licensed Insolvency Trustee’s in Pickering help people who are overwhelmed by their debt load and have fallen behind filing their Income Tax.

During your free consultation we will discuss all your options and help you prepare the required documentation. This will include getting your Income Tax reporting up to date. We will then speak to CRA on your behalf and request a reduction to your unpaid taxes.

The results of filing vary from situation to situation, but our experience has been that Revenue Canada is reasonable in its handling of people looking to resolve their debts and not avoid financial responsibilities.
