With a debt agreement, all your unsecured debts are quarantined. This means no creditors can charge you more interest or take any action against you. You just pay all your unsecured debts back in one easy regular payment which is interest free.
A Part IX Debt Agreement is a negotiated arrangement between your creditors and you.
It represents an alternative to bankruptcy, and is suited to individuals on an income lower than $1,610.70 (after tax) per week.
