What Is Credit Card Debt Relief?
Credit card debt relief is often synonymous with debt settlement, a process that allows you to settle with your creditors for less than what you owe. The process has gotten a bad rap because of scam companies, but it can be incredibly valuable if you’re already behind on payments.
To settle with a credit card company, you typically need to pay a lump-sum amount, which you and the credit card company agree on. It typically only works if you’re delinquent on your payments because there’s no incentive for the lender to accept a settled amount if you’re still making your payments on time.
You can try to negotiate with your lenders on your own. But if you decide to proceed with debt settlement through a third party, here’s how the process typically works:
- You stop making payments on the credit card debt you wish to settle.
- You enlist the help of a debt settlement company or a debt solutions law firm, which will notify the lender that you have plans to settle.
- You’ll make monthly payments to the company or law firm—for anywhere from a few months to a few years, depending on how much debt you have—which will be used to negotiate a settlement.
- Once the company or firm has enough to settle, it will negotiate a settlement.
In addition to the monthly payment for the settlement, you’ll typically also need to pay a monthly fee for the service, which can vary depending on the provider.
Of course, there are both pros and cons of debt settlement, so it’s important to consult with a professional who can help you make the right decision for you.
If you succeed, you can stop collection calls, avoid bankruptcy, and potentially save hundreds or even thousands of dollars. If done right, it can also make it easier for your credit score to rebound, especially because most of the damage has already been done by the time you consider requesting credit card debt relief.
Also, there are no guarantees with debt settlement, but it can help if you can show evidence of financial hardship and you work with a professional who knows the ins and outs of the process and also understands your rights as a consumer.
