Legal Answers
Q. I have $45000 in debt, a "debt resolution" lawyer is telling me to enroll on their program. Their fee is $500 per month
A: Debt settlement programs can work, but the problems happen when they do not (and unfortunately is often that the programs do not work). The payments you made are based on what the debt settlement company expects the creditor to accept. If the creditor wants more than they or refuses to settle, then you have the issue that there is then not enough money to go around and you may have to pay in more. The reason this is a problem is that debt settlement is controlled by what the creditor agrees to. If no agreement is made, then the creditor is likely will sue you in court. As for challenging debts and what was done wrong on the account, it is hard to do. Debt collectors are smart and follow the rules. Unless you have older debts that can be barred by the statute of limitations, it is often hard to get a creditor to back off or find a mistake that is worth them not collecting at all. Many people who attempt debt settlement end up having to file bankruptcy because the program does not work. I often encourage people to at least consult a bankruptcy lawyer before signing up for a debt settlement program to get an understanding of all your options. Many of our clients end up paying less to creditors (often nothing in a Chapter 7) and the attorney fees in a bankruptcy are often substantially less. Credit rebuilding also starts immediately after bankruptcy is over vs. in debt settlement it doesn't happen until all your accounts have been handled.
