Who Do Licensed Insolvency Trustees Help?

Your financial situation does not need to be ‘bad’ to qualify for help from a Licensed Insolvency Trustee. Sands & Associates helps people across BC – any BC resident can have a free, confidential consultation to talk about their situation, needs, and get a plan to become debt-free.

Some common situations we help people resolve include, but aren’t limited to:

  • You’d like general information about how you can pay off your debt.
  • You need guidance about your legal rights or remedies in dealing with a specific debt or creditor.
  • You are concerned about escalating collections or legal action by a creditor, such as a wage garnishment or bank account seizure.
  • You feel trapped in a debt cycle or can’t make substantial progress in paying down your debt.
  • You think you may need debt forgiveness or formal debt relief.
  • You’re considering debt consolidation or some type of debt restructuring solution.

If you decide to move forward with a Consumer Proposal or personal bankruptcy, we can work with you throughout these processes, and if you prefer to work on a self-directed plan, we will provide you with information on any additional resources that can help you be successful.
