Best thing I ever did! Don't let the messaging out there convince you being unable to manage your debt is shameful and a failing. Cori is amazing! She knows what she's talking about and she will guide through all your options. Everyone I've dealt with at David Sklar has been respectful and friendly. This was life changing help for me.

Rhoda had helped, not only myself but also my mother, with our situations and with utmost understanding and compassion. She is very thorough with her work to make sure your case is successful. We highly recommend her expertise if you ever in need of a consumer proposal.

Firstly I liked the convenient location (Head Office) located on the north side of Fairview Mall, parking was also as never a problem. Took myself some time to really 'Hit rock-bottom' before realizing that I had no choice, But to declare bankruptcy. Skylar & Associates was the first Trustee office that I contacted speaking to Associate Jackie Stains for a free phone consultation. Not knowing much about the process (bankruptcy) I also talked to other Trustee companies before ultimately trusting my 'Gut' by choosing David Skylar & Company's, Jackie. Highly recommended for her friendly, non judgmental approach & explanations regarding the Process. Questions were welcomed. Today I have a hopeful direction to move forward with far less stress & seeing light at the 'end of the Tunnel'!Chris Childs.

What is a Division 1 Proposal?

A Division I Proposal enables a person or business to avoid bankruptcy and be released from their unsecured debts after they have repaid a portion of those debts and honoured all the terms of their proposal.

WHAT IS THE PROCESS?

The Division I Proposal process varies from case to case. For most businesses and some individuals, it can include:

  • Extensive audits and cash flow analysis
  • Tax liability assessment
  • Business operation assessments – including employee and client retention

After you have met with a trustee and all relevant debt, liability, asset, and income information has been reviewed in detail the trustee will go over all the options available for debt relief. If both the individual and the trustee agree that a Division I Proposal is the best choice, they will then prepare a proposal together.

The proposal will set out the portion of debt your are able to repay over a given period of time and other terms that will be followed in exchange for being released from the debts included in the proposal.

The trustee then files and submits the proposal to your creditors. Note not all debts can be included in a proposal.

Once the proposal is filed the creditors must:

  • Stop all collection efforts
  • Stop all legal actions
  • Stop charging interest

The creditors vote on whether to accept or reject the proposal. For a Division I Proposal to be accepted – more than 50% of the creditors who hold more than 66.6% of the debt must accept the proposal. The Court must also approve of the proposal before it can be put into effect.
