Your financial counselor will discuss your debt-to-income ratio with you after reviewing both your secured and unsecured debts. They will also negotiate on your behalf for lower interest and the removal of any penalty fees with all of your creditors. Your bills will be lumped together for one affordable monthly payment. This is known as debt consolidation. Keep in mind that trying to attempt debt consolidation on your own is no easy task. Having our counselors act on your behalf is better ammunition.

Real Stories of Texas Clients
A 79 year old lady called from Fort Worth, Texas for help with her credit card. She is on a fixed income and was getting help from her daughter. Client has some medical issues, but her daughter has many more, so the client decided to move back into her own home and tackle her debts on her own.

In just over four years in the Creditguard program, the client will not only able to bring the account current, but also pay it in full and save over $6000 in interest and fees.
I was able to help a client living in Killeen Texas. He was in the process of joining the army and needed to get his debts managed before he started. His income was going to be less and so we were able to set him up onto the program with one payment a month that was low enough to afford. He owed $3,700 in credit cards and we were able to save him 20 years on getting this debt paid. He was very happy his debts were in one payment and he would be paid off sooner, and was very excited to get the process started.
A Lubbock, Texas client’s husband lost his job over a year ago and has been looking ever since, in his line of work there has been nothing in the area or surrounding areas, it has been tough for the client supporting the entire family off of her salary – she also has 2 kids under the age of 10. This client knows she can no longer keep up and knows she will fall behind without some kind of assistance. The debt management program will liquidate all her $30,400 in total debt in 4years and 7 months instead of 45 years and 2 months without the program, saving over $46,887 in interest and fees.
