What Challenge Did The Family Face?
Sam, a resident of Oshawa, was facing difficulties with the financial challenge of supporting six incredible children.
Indeed, the bills were becoming overwhelming, and the family income was not covering the cost.
His wife, Ellie, was staying at home with the kids while Sam worked and earned an average salary.
Slowly but surely, the costs on the credit card built up.
Before long, the family owed more than $30,000 in unsecured debts.
Sam and Ellie were terrified that the debt would ultimately cause them to lose their home because they were finding it impossible to keep up with payments.
Even with the debt, it was absolutely crucial for Sam and Ellie to keep their home.
They had to continue to be able to support their children.
What Action Did They Take?
Eventually, Sam and Ellie contacted a debt support office in Oshawa.
It soon became clear that they were in more debt than they could afford to pay off.
Most of the debt was unsecured that was spread out across different credit cards.
They had also been unable to pay off a lot of the mortgage on the home that they owned.
In fact, the couple had virtually no equity on their home at all.
The only asset of any real value was the car.
What Was The Solution And Outcome?
If they filed for bankruptcy, Sam and Ellie discovered that creditors would receive roughly $9,000.
Due to this, they were able to negotiate and instead set up a payment plan of $175 per month for sixty months in total.
They ultimately cleared $10,500 worth of their debt, and the rest was wiped clean.
The couple were able to pay their creditors, keep to a budget, and even managed to keep their home as well as their car.
Sam and Ellie managed to get their finances back on track and, after the sixty months, were even able to afford a seventh child.
