A debt settlement is an agreement between you and the institution to which you owe your debt. The institution agrees to reduce the principal of your debt in exchange of a lump sum or an installment payment plan.

Our goal is to save you as much money as possible. However, each situation is unique. We are here to review your situation and give you an estimate of how much money you can save once we go over your accounts.

Our fees are based on the total amount of debt you enroll in the Program. All program fees are included in your monthly contribution to include; account set up fee, administration fees and monthly maintenance fee.

Settling your debts sooner rather than later is our ultimate goal. Our Program typically spans between 24 and 48 months. Once your enrollment agent identifies your unique situation he will prescribe and outline the plan that works best for you. Ultimately, it will depend on your ability to save money to pay the settlement offers and the willingness of your creditors to negotiate. During your first consultation, we will do our best to provide you with a general idea of how long the process will take for your specific situation.

Mostly all unsecured debt

HOW WE CAN HELP YOU?

The Golden Rule

We treat clients as we would want to be treated ourselves. Being in debt does not mean that you are less of a person. Debt happens for many reasons, but the reasons are irrelevant. Asking for help takes courage and that means that you deserve respect. We respect the personal beliefs, differences, rights, values and privacy of all with whom we interact.
