Eliminating Debt Secrets Exposed, The Pros and Cons
A few options of becoming debt free, the pros and cons.
By: Vision Debt
Credit counselors are in fact hired by the credit card companies to try and help alleviate the interest not the principal balance. Being in a credit counseling program will simulate what most lenders refer to as a “walking bankruptcy” and will be on your credit report that you are in some sort of credit counseling program. Credit counseling will help you become debt free in about 7-9 years versus over 20 years by just paying the minimums.
Consolidating debt may be the most common option to eliminating debt, although it’s not eliminating debt but merely putting a “band-aid”
This option should really only be used as a last resort, after the bankruptcy reform laws of Oct ’05, it has become extremely difficult to file bankruptcy. Not to mention that a bankruptcy will stay on your credit report for 7-10 years and in public records for up to 20 years, in some cases making it difficult to qualify for a good paying job. With bankruptcy, consumers in most cases will pay back 100% of the debt and go through a very exhausting process
As being one of the best alternatives to bankruptcy, debt settlement will help alleviate financial stress very quickly. Most debt settlement companies will consolidate all unsecured debts form one monthly payment. Although most settlement companies do not report to credit bureaus, these programs may have an impact on credit depending on the current situation. Most companies, in most cases, will reduce debts by up 50% and help people become debt usually anywhere around 12-48 months.
