The Debt Settlement Process

Debt settlement is an informal process that takes place out of court. In general, a settlement begins when our lawyer contacts your creditors to negotiate a favorable arrangement for payment. If successful, a settlement will require a single payment of debt—but this payment will only constitute a portion of the debt that you owe. Through this method of handling debt, you may be able to repay your debt much quicker.

Our firm can help you settle the following types of debts:

  • Lawsuits
  • Home loans
  • Credit card debt
  • Unsecured loans
  • Car Repossession balances
  • Business loans
  • Credit unions
  • Medical bills

As simple as it may seem, working with your creditors to negotiate a settlement may be all it takes to resolve your financial issue. If you are ready to seek a settlement of your debt, call upon the services of our knowledgeable financial professional to make the most of this opportunity. Our firm can arrange to stop late fees and penalties.

Can I Afford Debt Settlement?

For individuals with a regular income, or those with some savings, debt settlement can be easily affordable. The debt settlement process involves paying your creditors a lump sum payment; in some cases, this money may come out of a savings or retirement account—in other cases, a payment plan can be established.

Is Debt Settlement the Right Option for Me?

In addition to settlement, various options exist for combatting outstanding debt. These include consolidation and bankruptcy. If bankruptcy is not right for you, debt settlement may be a great choice to get your debt under control. At Leonard V. Sominsky, ESQ., PC, we can help you weigh the pros and cons of these different options and choose the best path for eliminating debt.

Debt settlement differs from bankruptcy on a number of levels:

  • It involves partial payment of your debt
  • A settlement may be recorded as full payment of a debt
  • Settlement must be obtained through negotiation

Settlement is a wise choice if you have some money available, just not enough to completely pay back your creditors. Additionally, debt settlement is often advisable for people who are in financial trouble but do not qualify for bankruptcy. Contact our firm to learn more about your options in handling tremendous debt.

What Can Debt Settlement Do & Not Do?

Debt settlement may be able to do the following for you:

  • Reorganize any of your unsecured debt
  • Get rid of or lessen your interest payments
  • Stop harassing phone calls from your creditors
  • Get rid of any late payment fees and/or penalties

Debt settlement, however, can NOT do the following:

  • Protect your credit score from being affected
  • Reduce payments for your mortgage or car
  • Prevent foreclosure attempts in the works

Be Careful of Fly-by-Night Debt Relief Companies

If you are struggling with debt, you are likely under a lot of stress. Unfortunately, not all companies who advertise themselves as being in the debt relief industry are actually looking out for your best interests. In fact, the industry is often littered with fly-by-night companies that are simply looking to make a quick profit. Instead of turning to them, discuss your case with a reputable bankruptcy lawyer from our Phoenix law firm.
