Having dealt with financial problems and financial solutions for almost 40 years I can take certain things for granted. However, most people that find themselves in financial difficulties are doing so for the first time. They know nothing about the options that may be available to them to solve their problems. So if you are in this situation how you do get good advice? How do you know who to talk to for advice you can trust?
With the proliferation of television, internet, radio and print media advertising, offering all sorts of catchy phrases that basically boil down to “solving your financial problems” there is one good rule of thumb. Look at the qualifications of the person or agency that you are considering. What is their training, who monitors or audits their business?
While the term “Licensed Insolvency Trustee” is often seen as a negative title – nobody wants to go bankrupt –the title also means something else. It gives you a guaranteed level of expertise. Trustees are licensed by the Federal Government, after rigorous years of study, examinations and experience. As well, Trustees are continually audited by the Superintendent of Bankruptcy who works for the Federal Government. The term Licensed Insolvency Trustee basically guarantees a minimum standard of experience and education that can lead you in the right direction to solving your unique financial problems.

In this way, you can make an informed decision that is in your own best interest, knowing that you are working with people who are qualified, experienced, and regulated.
