Ohio Debt Settlement

Finding a reputable debt settlement company in Ohio or any other state can be difficult. Most have lengthy complaint histories and questionable results. Before contacting a debt settlement company that serves Ohio, it may be best to find out whether debt settlement even is a viable option.

Does Debt Settlement Work?

Debt settlement can work in certain situations, but there may be better options. There usually are better options in most situations. However, if you call a debt settlement company, they will likely sell you on their hyped up services as the only option.

Some people feel better letting a debt settlement company handle it for them. The truth is, debt settlement companies cannot do anything you cannot do on your own.

The upfront and monthly fees for a debt settlement plan can total to several thousand dollars over the course of the life of your plan. Many creditors may pursue legal action before you have the opportunity and the accumulated funds to settle.

It may sound tempting to utilize a debt settlement company. The quoted monthly payment is lower. The total payoff is lower. However, your credit score is also lower and your risk of facing a judgment can be very high for larger accounts. The fees are also much higher than what a nonprofit credit counseling agency will charge.

If you have a single account that was charged off in the last couple of years that you think you could negotiate a settlement on your own, then maybe that would be a situation in which you could benefit by negotiating your own settlement.

Collection accounts can be settled as a way to satisfy debt and begin the credit rebuilding process. However, any credit card account that has not been charged off and turned over to collections can almost always be handled better through other means.
