Does debt relief really work?

When you're struggling with debt, you may feel like no one can understand what you're going through. But in reality, countless other Delaware residents have faced the same challenges at one time. Because so many people do end up with overwhelming debt, the strategies and solutions for dealing with the challenges created by large debt really do work.

Why hire a debt relief attorney?

There is no legal obligation to hire an attorney. However, the debt relief process is complex, and you benefit from working through the process with someone who understands the law. In many cases, for example, creditors may be less willing to make payment arrangements or modify loans if you are the one who's trying to make the arrangements.

When creditors are talking to an attorney, on the other hand, they know you're serious about taking care of your debt. Attorneys can also refer to specific laws and precedents to encourage creditors to comply with current laws. If creditors or debt collectors are using illegal means, attorneys can use legal proceedings to put a stop to these behaviors.

An attorney can also help you explore all your options. Many people come to Rahaim & Saints, for example, not even realizing there are a range of options besides bankruptcy. If you have a large medical debt, for instance, it is possible to seek to have that medical bill reduced, discharged or modified. In fact, our attorneys can explore whether that bill should be covered under your health policy or whether it can't be covered by some other means.

We can explore all the options with you because we are aware of the solutions available. Our focus on bankruptcy and financial law ensures we know the laws potentially affecting your situation.

An attorney can also help you with all the processes. If you do decide to file for bankruptcy or decide to modify a loan, for example, you will need to fill out paperwork, reach an agreement, and understand all the terms of the agreement. An attorney can help you with this process and can even take care of much of the paperwork for you, freeing up your time so you can focus on recovering financially.

Regardless of the severity of your current financial situation, you don't have to live with a cloud of debt over you forever. Contact Rahaim & Saints today to schedule an initial debt relief consultation.
