Debt Settlement

Debt Settlement – Why You Need a Debt Attorney?

Are you facing more debt than you can handle? Are your debts increasing every month due to late fees and higher percentages? Are creditors or bill collectors harassing you – or worse, calling people you know? Are your wages being garnished, or your bank accounts being levied or attached? Are you looking for a realistic way to settle debt?

There are many reasons that can cause even the most financially responsible person among us to get into overwhelming debt, including loss of a job or a salary reduction, divorce or medical bills.  If you are one of the many Americans struggling with ever-increasing bills, or worse, collection letters, despite your best efforts to pay your debts, you might be considering filing for protection under the federal bankruptcy laws. While most people are aware of bankruptcy and the stigma attached to it, fewer are aware that there is an alternative form of debt relief: Debt Settlement.

How Debt Settlement Works

Debt settlement is a legal process of debt reduction in which the creditor and debtor agree on a reduced balance that, once settled, will be regarded as payment in full.

When a debtor is unable to make the minimum monthly payments on an unsecured debt such as credit card debt or medical bills, balances continue to grow due to ongoing interest and late fees. In order to stop this cycle of ever-increasing debt, negotiations between the debtor and the creditor can result in a reduced balance that the debtor can realistically pay off with regular payments.

Debt settlements can lower consumers debt balances dramatically and save debtors from the stigma of bankruptcy. The creditor, who risks losing all monies owed if bankruptcy is filed, still regains a large part of the debt.

Settling Debt can truly be a winning solution all around by avoiding bankruptcy, stopping creditor harassment, satisfying your debts and saving money!

  1. I have 21000 in debt, and I want to find out my options. I have been told many things: I want to know why I should go for consumer credit counseling, which would cost me 24400, or a debt settlement company, which would cost me 19000. Or should I just deal with the calls (I can block them on my phone) and wait for it to go away? Don’t they write it off after 3 years in Mississippi? What if they resell or transfer the debt? Does the timeline start over? This is what I’ve heard.

    I want, obviously, the solution that is going to cost me the least, and repair or not damage my credit further. How do attorneys recoup their fees in this situation? Do they charge a flat fee, like debt settlement does? Does how much they get depend upon how much they save me?
    So many things to consider.
