Sometimes, taking control of your finances means creating a budget. Through credit counseling, you can figure out where you're spending too much money and use that extra money to pay off credit card bills, medical expenses, student loans and so on.
If your debt stems from many channels, it may be in your best interest to consolidate them into one easy monthly payment. This can help lower both your interest rate and your monthly payment.
Nonprofit credit counseling agencies will work with lenders to reduce your interest rates to a level you can afford. You don't need a great credit score to join the program, but if you fail to make your payments on time, you could be terminated from the program.
You'll work with a firm to convince your lenders to settle a debt for less than what is owed. This rarely works out the way it's supposed to, but speaking with an attorney will give you a better understanding of how the process works.
This is often a last-ditch effort for those trying to eliminate their debt because it can have a long-term effect on your credit score.
