Careful! Are You Being Led Down the Right Path?

Nobody intends to get into debt without the means to pay it off. More often than not, debt accumulates for reasons that are completely unexpected or beyond our control. Whatever the reason, though, the burden of carrying large debt creates an overwhelming feeling. And, life is too short to live under this type of financial stress so one must seek relief and eliminate the debt burden sooner than later.

Furthermore, persons buried by debts may feel desperate making them vulnerable to biased, unethical, and in some cases predatory practices of some service providers using hardcore marketing tactics.

Since there are a variety of solutions to address getting out of debt, it's important to be cautious and not to jump into what seems easy without first stepping back and considering all of the benefits and consequences of each option. The possible resolutions include refinancing a mortgage, consolidating in a new loan, setting up an affordable repayment plan, transferring credit card balances to low interest accounts, negotiating discounted settlements on the debt, filing bankruptcy under Chapter 7, 11, or 13, or selling off an asset, such as real estate.

With all the reasons for accumulating unmanageable debt, and all the possible solutions to consider, it's critical that you speak with a knowledgeable professional to get the right advice for your specific circumstances. Your short-term and long-term goals must be addressed when determining how to go about achieving the best results.

When seeking advice, however, many people become confused on what to do because they hear vastly different opinions from professionals of different fields of practice. Worse yet, people may take the wrong advice (and waste valuable money and time) due to the bias of the advisor with narrow or limited experience.

Think about it, even with reputable and legitimate service providers, if you first talk to a bankruptcy attorney, that person will tell you to file bankruptcy. But when you talk to a debt relief agency, that representative will tell you your problems will be solved by making monthly payments to their company. A loan broker, will try to get you a new loan, and a real estate agent will tell you the best thing is just to sell your home to repay the debt. Right? It's like the old adage regarding back pain. A surgeon will want to solve the problem with surgery, a chiropractor with adjustments, a pharmacist with medication, etc.
