How does debt relief work? How long does the process take? What do I need to get started? Many of our customers have questions about how the debt relief process works, and when they can expect to resolve their debt. We outline our debt relief process for you so you know what to expect from start to finish.
Step 1: Contact Us.
You can reach out to us by phone or online through a contact form. One of our representatives will reach out to you and ask you some questions to learn more about your debt. There is no obligation to work with us after this initial phone call.
Step 2: We create your debt relief program.
If your debt qualifies, we will work with you to create a customized program. During this time, you will make a monthly deposit into a dedicated program account, gradually building the amount instead of making minimum payments on your debt.
Step 3: We negotiate on your behalf.
As you grow your dedicated program account, we will work to negotiate with your creditors to reduce your overall debt. Each time we are successful, we will reach out to you for authorization.
Step 4: You pay off your debt.
After you pay the full or reduced amount owed on each account, you will be debt-free!
How long will the debt relief process take?
While the length of time that the process takes is different for everyone, most of our customers are able to pay off their debts in 24-48 months. This is typically much sooner than the length of time it would take to pay off your debts by making only the minimum payments.
