The greatest problem with taking a loan or a credit is that most people don’t pay them back in time and thus keep mounting on their debt burden. You may find yourself in such situations that call for substantial amount of economic down payments such as medical emergency, car repair, home repair, payment of school fees and so on. It is pretty natural to find that you don’t have enough money always to procure cash for these purposes; you can then take out a loan in order to meet these requirements. However, when you make it a habit to borrow money for every little purpose, even shopping, it is then that you fall in extreme financial trouble.
The financial trouble that debt leads you to is basically because of the high interest rate on unsecured debts. Unsecured debts are the credit card debts and traditional loans that are taken without collateral, that is, without any guarantee which makes the interest rate on them pretty high. If you are very deep in debt and cannot make your debt payments then you have to go for bankruptcy to discharge your debts. However you should avoid bankruptcy at all costs as this will tarnish your credit scores by 150 to 200 points for a minimum of 7 years. Such record of bankruptcy on your credit report will affect in future your ability to take out a new credit card, mortgage, car loan or even get a job. Thus it is imperative that you find methods to avoid bankruptcy.
You can avoid bankruptcy through the process of debt settlement. Usually debt settlement is applicable for easing your debts if you have missed some payments. In such cases debt consolidation cannot be used as that method is applicable till you are able to continue with your minimum monthly payments at least. Debt settlement is an aggressive method of debt reduction. It is advisable that you take professional help for the purpose. A professional debt settlement company will provide you with a negotiator who will study your economic condition and then negotiate with your creditors to reduce the outstanding amount of your debts. Usually your debts are reduced by 40% to 60% thus making your pay back process easier.
After you have made a lump sum payment of the settlement amount, you are free of debt and have successfully avoided bankruptcy. For more information you can join us at Facebook : http://www.facebook.com/debtconsolidationcare
