Finding the Right Debt Relief Solution
Making the wrong decision about how to achieve debt relief for your particular situation can lead to further financial trouble. When you bring your case to me, I can review it and help you make the decision that is optimal for you and your financial situation. These solutions generally apply to unsecured debt, such as those involving credit cards, department store cards, or medical bills.
Debt relief solutions include:
- Debt management plans
- Debt consolidation loans
- Debt settlement
Debt Management Plan
A debt management plan is one in which your unsecured debts are consolidated without taking out a new loan to pay them off. Under such a plan, your creditors generally agree to reduce your monthly payment and/or interest rate as well as to forego any penalties.
A payment schedule is then arranged that usually allows you to pay off your debt over a three- or five-year period with one affordable payment. It often involves using a credit counseling agency that helps to determine your monthly payment based on your current financial condition.
Debt Consolidation Loan
A debt consolidation loan involves taking out a loan at a lower interest to pay off your higher interest rate debt. It consolidates all your debt into one manageable monthly payment. This type of solution does not eliminate your debt, but does restructure your payments.
Because you have only one payment to make each month on the loan, it becomes a simpler and easier way to handle your debt. Home equity loans and personal loans without collateral can be used as debt consolidation loans.
Debt settlement involves negotiating with your creditor to pay off less than you owe. You must first establish that your creditor is willing to settle your debt. Then you will eventually provide the creditor with a negotiated lump sum payment that is a percentage of what you owe and the rest of your debt is forgiven.
In many cases, you will stop making monthly payments to the creditor and begin stacking those payments in an account that can be used to negotiate the settlement.
Bankruptcy is a legal solution that allows you to eliminate your debt through liquidation of certain assets or through a repayment plan. Options include Chapter 7, Chapter 11, and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. If needed, my firm can assist you with an emergency bankruptcy filing.
How Do You Get Medical Debt Forgiven?
