The difference between debt consolidation and debt relief

Stearns KY 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): Stearns Kentucky 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 Stearns-based users.

Dealing with the stress of debt

This is something our competitors fail to provide to debtors, and it’s very important. Dealing with debt can be extremely taxing in a myriad of ways – especially stress. That is why we have provided exact search operator links below that list all stress relief and stress management professionals helping people in, or near Stearns and the McCreary County surrounding areas. Try not to put too much pressure on yourself, and never forget you are not alone. Furthermore, REMEMBER that your debt problems are only temporary – you will get through this OK! If you are finding it hard to function because of your debt induced stress, we encourage you to reach out to your local Stearns professionals as provided below.

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 Stearns 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.

From all of us at Local Debt Services, we send our best to our customers in the Stearns, Kentucky area. We’ll do our part in trying to find you the right debt solution quickly.

F.A.Q. for Stearns KY Residents

Answer: Yes. You can do an Associate Debt Settlement in Stearns Kentucky.

An associate debt settlement (or associate debt "relief") is when you have a close friend, relative, or third-party negotiate with your creditors to pay back only a portion of your debt(s).

This is a legal process that has a lot of advantages. By having your McCreary County-based third-party (friend, relative, or professional) negotiate with your Stearns creditors (banks, credit unions, hard money lenders, payday loan companies, title loan companies, etc.) you are removing most of the stress involved with the debt relief process.

Your Stearns-based creditors are better off with an associate debt settlement as well because your associate is not burdened with the emotional aspects such as guilt and shame that go with overwhelming debt problems.

Answer: Yes. You can get a Tidy Debt Relief in Stearns Kentucky.

A Tidy Debt Relief (or Tidy Debt "Settlement") is when you consolidate all your debt(s) with one Stearns-based creditor (or one National creditor) and one form of credit. The form of credit can be an unsecured credit (for example of unsecured credit card) or some form of secured credit, such as a home equity line of credit, or a credit line secured with some sort of asset (car, RV, truck, property, etc.).

The way it works is this:

You pay off ALL your McCreary County-based creditors (e.g. - utility bills, overdue rent, local telephone company, Stearns-based department stores, small businesses, pay day loan companies, title loan companies, friends, relatives, used car dealerships, etc.) with the one main secured or unsecured credit form you chose above.

The advantages of your local Tidy Debt Relief process are as follows:

1) Almost ALL of your local Stearns Kentucky-based creditors are paid off in full so you’re hurting the least number of creditors in your local area. The larger national banks such as JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Citigroup, U.S. Bancorp, Truist Financial, PNC Bank, TD Bank, Capital One are insured for all consumer credit charge-offs.

2) If, after you’ve exhausted all avenues of paying down your main national creditor, and can’t possibly pay them back in full, you can begin a debt relief (or debt settlement) process with them. By only having one creditor to “deal with” (negotiate with) you are dramatically speeding up your debt settlement process, while making sure our local Stearns creditors are made whole.

3) By paying off (hopefully all) of your local Stearns creditors with the money from your single creditor you’re stopping almost all of the collection agency phone calls. One creditor to deal with.

When you are at the stage where you’ve paid off all your local Stearns creditors with the money from your one nationwide creditor we recommend you carry out an Associate Debt Settlement (see the F.A.Q. above).

Answer: No. You can’t go to jail for having unpaid debt in Stearns Kentucky.

Stearns Kentucky-based creditors can’t take your primary residency (if you own a home), your home contents, one vehicle, or any tools you need to earn a living with.

However, depending on your special circumstances, if you don’t pay child support, tax arrears, or court fines, there is a very slight possibility of doing a little jail time in Stearns or somewhere in Kentucky. This is only in rare cases of egregious default.

So stop worrying about that, regardless of what any debt collection company tells you.

Answer: Yes. You can choose to ignore debt collection agencies in Stearns Kentucky but you shouldn’t!

You should never ignore any snail mail, emails, texts, or phone calls from any creditor (National or Stearns-based) because you DON’T want them to go to court and get a judgement against you. Don’t let it go that far.

If you get notices from any Stearns Kentucky-based collection agency acting on behalf of a national creditor, respond ASAP. Get in front of it and start a negotiation if you can.

We know it’s stressful dealing with creditors so consider getting an associate to deal with your national and/or Stearns-based creditors. See the What is Associate Debt Settlement and can I get one in Stearns KY? FAQ above.

Answer: No. Debt collection representatives calling Stearns Kentucky residents on their phones must do so between the hours of 8:00 AM and 9:00 PM. The only exception is if you give them permission to call you any time.

Answer: Debt collection representatives communicating with Stearns Kentucky residents CANNOT:

--- Call you all hours of the day and night (see FAQ above).
--- Threaten you with physical violence.
--- Use foul or abusive language.
--- Lie about how much you owe.
--- Fake being a lawyer.
--- Fake working for the Federal Gov or Kentucky State Gov.
--- Claim you'll go to jail (see FAQ above).
--- Say they'll use legal action when they're not.
--- Claim you owe extra fees or interest on the actual arrears.
--- Contact your friends for family unless it's your spouse.
--- Contact you at work if your employer disallows it.

Stearns KY-based banks, credit unions, community banks, and national bank branches have the strictest rules and regulations governing how they lend money (ANY money – not just for debt consolidation) so they are considered to be perfectly legit.

Stearns Kentucky-based PRIVATE hard money lenders, subprime lenders, and title loan lenders must follow all FTC guidelines regarding lending and all Kentucky State usury regulations as well, BUT these hard money lenders tend to be the most susceptible when it comes to cutting corners, skirting the law, or using shady (questionable) tactics. See our Kentucky State usury regulations section near the top of this page entitled, “Understanding Kentucky Lending Law”.

To be on the safe side, no matter which Stearns-based lender you apply for a debt consolidation loan with, be sure to read all their contract fine print carefully. If you can’t do that, at least find a Stearns-based professional financial adviser or local Stearns-based attorney to check the lender’s contract over.

The best Stearns KY banks for debt consolidation are the banks that give you the lowest possible interest rate and APR considering your credit history and personal financial situation (income, DTI, etc.).

Your Stearns-based community banks are generally easier to deal with when compared to any of the National Bank Branches with physical addresses in Stearns. But keep in mind that your community banks are “FOR-PROFIT” companies, just like the National banks such as JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Citigroup, U.S. Bank, PNC Bank, TD Bank, or Capital One.

Your best bet when applying for a debt consolidation loan is usually with a NOT-FOR-PROFIT Stearns Kentucky-based Credit Union. Even better…a Stearns-based Credit Union that you’re already a member of.

June 03, 2023 tip of the day for Stearns-area visitors…

Face the shame and except the blame. We know it can be hard to except our own financial mistakes. But the sooner you do, the sooner you can rebuild your financial health. This can greatly reduce stress as well. We know your debt and/or bad credit might be due to something completely out of your control. If that’s the case, you still have to deal with it. What doesn’t really matter. Banks, lenders, credit unions, etc., don’t care WHY you’re in a bad financial situation. They just want to know what their risk is when doing business with you. The sooner you face the cold hard truth the better off you’ll be all around.
