What Is A Debt Consolidation?

A debt consolidation is not a loan but rather the process of restructuring a debt to be repaid over three to five years. To file for a consolidation, a debtor must have a consistent source of income. A debtor's income and their amount of debt will determine their owed monthly payment. A debt consolidation can cut the total amount of debt owed, which in turn eliminates additional interest.

In a debt consolidation, the courts organize a person's debts into three categories:

  • Secured debts: Debts with collateral such as a car loan or mortgage
  • Priority debts: Debts designated by the bankruptcy code as a high-priority debt payment, including some tax debts, spousal support and child support payments
  • Nonpriority debts: Payday loans, credit cards, medical debts and other debts without collateral

A debt consolidation will pay secured and priority debts first. For unsecured debts, a debtor only has to pay back what their budget will allow. A debtor may have their remaining debts eliminated after the debt consolidation repayment plan is complete.
