It is not uncommon for persons facing bankruptcy to feel helpless and trapped. If you are facing financial difficulties and threats of bankruptcy, it is important to remember that there are other options to settle your debts. Part IX debt agreements and Part X personal insolvency agreements are two possible ways in which you can resolve your liabilities without having to go bankrupt.
Part IX debt agreements under the Bankruptcy Act 1966 (Cth) are available to people who have small debts, a small number of assets and a low income available to pay creditors. A debt agreement may involve the transfer of some of your property to the creditors, the implementation of a system of periodic payments and/or the reduction of the overall debt owing. The potential benefit to a debt agreement is the avoidance of bankruptcy and total loss of assets. Debt agreements also benefit creditors because it usually gives them a better return than that of a bankruptcy.
A Part X personal insolvency agreement is a reasonably flexible agreement offered under Part X of the Bankruptcy Act 1966 (Cth) and is available to individuals where a Part IX agreement may not be available or appropriate. It is, however, much stricter and formal than a Part IX agreement.
