The difference between debt consolidation and debt relief
Alma AR debtors struggling with out of control have a few choices if they want to improve their financial situation.
1.) You can apply for a loan to consolidate all of your debt, or;
2.) You can use a debt relief service to negotiate with their creditors
WHAT IS DEBT RELIEF (in brief): Debt relief is a process whereby the debtor uses a licensed service provider to get between themselves and their creditors.
What we mean by get between?
The debt relief provider will have their professionals (including their attorneys) contact each of your creditors to hammer out a deal whereby you pay back only a portion of your debt(s) (cents on the dollar). This can result in the debtor paying back anywhere from 10% to 50% of their debt depending on your financial situation.
Of course, this does affect your credit rating.
In most cases, this results in creditors ceasing to contact you with endless phone calls. The creditors must deal with the debt relief provider, and the debt relief provider will work out a payment schedule with yourself, so you pay them, and they make the payments to the creditors until your debts are extinguished.
Of course, the debt relief agency will charge you a fee for their services. Make sure that before you sign any contracts with the debt relief firm, you know exactly what your costs are.
WHAT IS DEBT CONSOLIDATION (in brief): Alma Arkansas debtors who prefer to avoid a debt relief solution can apply for a loan amount high enough to pay off all their higher interest debts, and wind up with only one monthly or biweekly payment.
The most important factor when getting a consolidation loan is making sure you have enough income to cover your cost of living and your new consolidation loan payment. Therefore, it’s important to know what your TRUE debt-to-income ratio is before applying, as well as creating a realistic budget that takes into account your new consolidation loan payments, your rent or mortgage, and all other bills (cell phones, heat, electricity, etc.). We provide an easy to use budgeting spreadsheet for our Alma-based users.

After your consolidation loan is approved…then what?
Once you get your debt consolidation loan, you need to avoid falling into another “debt trap”. Some of our Alma customers feel a huge sense of relief after getting rid of their multiple debts, but unfortunately, they start taking on more debt soon after. We strongly recommend not doing that!
Why? You may find yourself right back where you were prior to your consolidation loan. This can result in damaging your credit further, and eventually lead to personal bankruptcy. Make sure when you get your consolidation loan approved, you stick to your new budget.
