Insolvency and Sequestration

Insolvency by itself does not mean you have to undergo sequestration. In everyday terms, insolvency means an individual cannot pay his/her debts. Such an individual could seek debt counseling and financial coaching to manage their situation of financial difficulty. In legal terms, insolvency means the debtor’s liabilities exceed his/her assets and the individual is in financial distress. If you meet the requirements for legally declaring insolvency as an individual, you can request to be placed under an order of sequestration by the court. If the court is satisfied with the proof of insolvency provided, a sequestration order will be issued.

Sequestration is the legal situation in which an individual’s estate is surrendered to the High Court because debts cannot be paid. Only the High Court can grant a sequestration order, and it is not be confused with a company or closed corporation that is insolvent, as that can be placed under liquidation by magistrate’s and regional courts. Sequestration has to do with the individual in his/her own capacity. Sequestration can be entered into voluntarily or it can be forced. In instances where you have a large amount of debt, which is going to take more than 5 years (excluding your home loan) to pay back, sequestration may be a better option for you than debt review or debt management. A creditor can force an individual to be placed under sequestration when they can prove the individual’s insolvency and apply to the court. Regardless of the method through which the individual is placed under sequestration, an Insolvency Practitioner will need to assist the insolvent debtor and/or the creditors through the sequestration process.

So what happens if you find the need for declaring insolvent?

Insolvency and sequestration is a specific life event that has a long-lasting effect. Each person has a different experience and most people will navigate their way through feelings of inadequacy, failure, and shame. If the process is handled correctly and with the right sequestration coaching, they will learn coping skills and slowly heal from the experience. For some people, the process can take years and be very stressful. It is not a process that one should try to handle alone and having a stable support system is absolutely crucial. This support system should include your Insolvency Practitioner and Sequestration Coach.

We at Ursula Gouws Consulting offer specific coaching and consulting for those in financial difficulty or financial distress and for whom sequestration has become the only option to settle debt. Our advice is tailored to help you move through the emotional process faster and start your life after sequestration and the financial future that you have worked so hard for. Ursula is a trained Life and Business Coach that has personally been sequestrated twice – she knows that there is indeed a beautiful, debt-free life after sequestration. There is no judgment or lack of understanding when you talk about your experience. With the proper infrastructure and support we provide, we take care of the person, not only the debt.

Coaching sessions are only as long as you need with a follow up to complete the process.
