Chapter 128 / Debt Consolidation

Chapter 128 gets its name from the Wisconsin state statute it falls under, 128.21. The main intention of Chapter 128 is to repay debt without filing bankruptcy. It is NOT a consumer credit counseling program, but a debt consolidation plan filed with the Wisconsin Circuit Courts, with documents prepared by an attorney. A trustee is then appointed to administer the plan.

The Chapter 128 is a win-win situation for all parties involved. You repay your creditors without the worry of collection procedures or garnishment of wages. Your creditor receives payment for 100% of the money that was owed to them at the time of filing.  Our clients have found the Chapter 128 to be an effective personal bankruptcy alternative.
