testimonial

How It Works

The company helping you will negotiate directly with the creditor to lower your outstanding balance of debt. You will make one monthly deposit into a bank account, and as the balance of that account increases, the company will contact your creditors to negotiate settlements for less than what you owe.

testimonial

Best for People:
  • - in very serious debt
  • - who can't make required minimum payments
  • - looking for alternatives to bankruptcy
  • - looking for a low monthly program payment
  • - who want to resolve debts relatively quickly

testimonial

Pros/Cons:

Pros: Reduce total amount owed, low monthly program payment, fees only on resolved debt, company acts as consumer's credit advocate

Cons: may negatively affect credit score, you may still be contacted by collectors

Don't wait! Find out if Settlement is right for you!

debt consolidation

Take out one loan, to pay off many others

If you're making payments to many different creditors every month, debt consolidation might be perfect for you! Making one single payment for all your debts might be more convenient, but you'll need to remember that your interest rates might be higher, or you might have to leverage an asset of your own to secure the loan.

testimonial

How It Works

The most common type of debt consolidation loan is cash-out refinance. Qualifying people must have sufficient equity in homes, strong incomes, and good credit. This option shifts several of your unsecured debts into one, single new debt that is secured by an asset of your own, like your home.

testimonial

Best for People:
  • - with large debt(at least $10,000)
  • - with collateral like a house, that they're willing to put on the line (secured loan)
  • - who are willing to pay a higher interest rate (unsecured loan)

testimonial

Pros/Cons:

Pros: possibility of lower interest rate(with secured loan), simplifies into one payment, makes larger debts are more manageable

Cons: personal assets(like your home or car) may be at risk, will not reduce your total owed, interest rates are not always lower

Don't wait! Find out if Consolidation is right for you!

debt counseling

Resolve your moderate level of debt

If you're having a hard time paying your bills each month, but you only need a moderate level of debt relief, this may be the perfect option for you!

testimonial

How It Works

A credit counselor can help you set up an affordable payment plan, as well as offer a lower interest rate that they pre-negotiated with your creditors. If you have more serious debt however, this may not be the best option for you.

testimonial

Best for People:
  • - with moderate level of debt
  • - who can afford their monthly payments, but aren't making any progress on the total debt
  • - who want to protect themselves from creditors or collection agencies
  • - who do not want to become delinquent

testimonial

Pros/Cons:

Pros: assists with budgeting tools, negotiates lower interest rates with creditors, sends monthly payments to creditors, may not negatively impact your FICO score

Cons: must repay 100% of debt, must make timely payments each month, usually takes longer than debt settlement

Don't wait! Find out if Counseling is right for you!

bankruptcy

Get a fresh financial start

Bankruptcy is often considered the option of last resort. It allows you to start over financially, but with enormous consequences. It is difficult to qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, so must people file for Chapter 13 instead. With this option, you will still need to repay some or all of your debts, over time.

testimonial

How It Works

With Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you will negotiate a repayment plan with the court. You will then make payments to the court, which will distribute your money to your creditors, at the direction of a court appointed trustee.

testimonial

Best for People:
  • - who tried alternative paths already but were not able to maintain the required monthly payments
  • - who are carrying more debt than they can forseeably pay back

testimonial

Pros/Cons:

Pros: (may be) best option for people with serious debt, more effective than other alternatives, cleared of obligations to repay unsecured debts(with chapter 7)

Cons: dramatically harms your credit, remains on credit report for up to 10 years, costs to file, difficult to qualify for chapter 7 bankruptcy.
