What Is Debt Workout?
Debt workout refers to a negotiated agreement between a debtor and creditor — or creditors. At the Law Offices of David H. Sandler & Associates, our legal team will thoroughly examine your situation and work to negotiate an agreement on your behalf. Typically, these agreements can take one of two forms:
- Composition: This is typically a settlement between a debtor and two or more creditors where the creditors agree to take a partial payment in full satisfaction of the claim.
- Extension: This is an agreement between the debtor and two or more creditors to extend the period of time in which the debt may be repaid.
