  • When declaring bankruptcy, it will be on your credit report for up to 10 years.
  • You will lose access to credit cards.
  • Bankruptcy can come with high legal and court fees.

With debt consolidation, you obtain a personal loan equal to the current debt amount. The newer loan has an interest rate that is lower. This means you will have one loan and one payment to handle. It is a good idea for those still maintaining reasonable credit. When you have credit that is not so great, a debt consolidation may not be the optimum option.
