Recognize the Reaffirmation Trap
When you face extreme debt and are considering bankruptcy or other debt relief options, it is important to get an attorney involved in the process as soon as possible. This is especially true if you have been asked to sign a reaffirmation agreement or a waiver discharge.
Lenders often use high-pressure tactics to get borrowers to unknowingly sign these agreements, thereby signing away many of their rights and their ability to retain their possessions. These lenders will tell you that these agreements prevent car repossession or possession of other property, but the reality is that these agreements eliminate your ability to discharge certain debts through bankruptcy. Your property or your car may still be repossessed if you fall behind on your payments at a later time.
