An Oregon Client’s Story
A man from Roseburg, Oregon., Mr. W went through a divorce 3yrs ago since then he has had to purchase a new home, new car, etc and had to start over with every belonging he originally owned. His wife got everything in the divorce proceedings. Client also had to pay out a lump sum of $63,000 to his wife in the settlement – that was the client’s entire life savings, 401k, pension, and CD. Client is a self employed contractor and due to the housing economy he has lost over half of his clients – business is still slow and he is falling further behind, is already a month behind now on every credit card and next month will be 2 months. Client called at 1st telling me that he wanted to file bankruptcy and that he spoke with an attorney in regards to this as well. I explained to him in great detail the pros to our debt management program, credit, amt of interest saved etc and the negatives of a bankruptcy. His attorney told him it would ruin his credit for 7 years and he would lose all 3 of his cars and it will cost him $1500 up front plus a monthly installment – basically based on what I told him he was pleased with our DMP and has decided to move forward with a debt consolidation program with us.
