Borrowers do not default their payments always with an intention to do so. It sometimes happens without any intention. This happens when some unforeseen circumstances arise. These unforeseen circumstances include layoff, divorce, and bankruptcy.
Example: If an individual has lost his job and due to this, he has made a default on the credit card payments that were due in his name. Usually, he would be recommended to close the account. But doing this is not the optimal solution for this problem. In such situation, the most feasible solution is to restructure the total amount that is related to the credit card.
