Can my boyfriend and I do a joint application?

April 2nd, 2015 by Questions

Hi there, if I am interested in a consumer proposal can my boyfriend and I do a joint application? Combined we have about 23000 in debt, we both have vehicles and are just overwhelmed. Combined we make $80,000 and do not have a problem with pay our creditors but the interest is killing us with so many cards to pay we just want to have one monthly payment.

Please let me know if you can help.

Thank you,
Ashley

This certainly sounds like many situations where we’ve been able to help couples setup a consumer proposal. It’s very common that people come to talk to me and are still able to make their minimum payments, but are struggling to make any real headway on paying down the principal. Joint proposals are also an option and can be assessed on whether it’s a possibility when you sit down with a trustee to discuss your options and information that’s very good to know.
