It might seem as if there is nowhere left to turn. But this doesn’t have to be you. If you’re struggling with the following, debt settlement might be the right choice for you:

  • Preventing yourself from acquiring new debts

Understanding the Debt Settlement Process

While bankruptcy might be the right option for some, this is not always the case. Instead, your lawyer can speak to your creditors and arrange for debt relief. After a debt settlement has been negotiated, an individual will pay one lump sum to the creditors that is often much less than the original amount owed.

Typically, the amount of the lump sum is around 50 percent of the full amount owed, but sometimes a lawyer can negotiate for a payment as low as 25 percent of the original amount. Once the creditor receives the payment, the debt is considered satisfied.

Because their only other options are to receive no payment at all or engage in lengthy—and often costly—litigation, creditors will frequently agree to accept settlements. However, because there is no obligation to agree to such settlements, it is extremely important that you have an experienced and persuasive lawyer to fight and negotiate for you.

Benefits of Choosing Debt Settlement

In addition to alleviating the amount of debt owed, there are many other benefits to debt settlements.

These advantages include:

  • An experienced debt settlement lawyer does all the negotiating, so you are no longer required to speak to creditors yourself
  • A debt settlement lawyer may be able to persuade a creditor to agree to more manageable settlement terms
  • You can avoid dealing with debt consolidation programs, which are typically fraudulent and are not forthright with all that debt consolidation entails
