Debt and Collection

Today there are more debt and collection businesses than there were in the past. If you have a mortgage, owe money on a personal loan or use credit cards, you are a debtor. If you are behind on your payments or struggling with debt, learning more about debt and collection can help you make the best decisions. It can take a lot of nerve, control and willpower to become debt free.

Here we provide help and guidance for consumers dealing with debt, collection agencies, repossession, or short sales, and we’ll tell you how all of these issues affect your credit report.
