This is a very low percent compared to other agencies, as our goals are to settle accounts before this occurs. If you are sued we will still help you reach an agreement with that creditor. With most clients who […]
It is impossible to stop debt collectors from calling. There is no debt settlement firm that can stop ALL collection calls, but a good firm can help you decrease the calls significantly. The creditors have an obligation to continue to call until receiving a payment. Typically, when you start to pay back a portion of the debt, the creditor calls will slow down.
The settlement firm that you work with should be able to tell you when your first settlement is expected. It depends on the creditor(s), the amount of money you are able to save for the settlement, and the debt settlement program length. Some clients can see a settlement within the first month depending on delinquency, but most clients receive their first settlement between 3-6 months of enrollment.

The program fee is 15-20% of savings depending on the state you reside in. For example, if your debt is $30,000 and the debt is negotiated down to $17,000 the savings is $13,000. The […]
The company has a combined experience of 30 years with over $50 million in personal and business debt settled for our clients.
Any debt over $600 that is forgiven will be issued a 1099 by the creditor. For example, if your debt was $20,000 and you reached a settlement of $12,000, then the forgiven debt is $8000. However the IRS will often waive this tax liability if you prove that you were insolvent during the time in which your debt settlement occurred. Many of our clients are able to prove insolvency since their debts are more than […]
