Debt Relief Delay is Not an Option

Apr 10, 2008
If you are in debt the worst thing you can do is pretend the problem doesn't exist; certain options exist but you must first take some control of the money that is being spent. Debt relief is not something you can delay as your debts will always increase when nothing is done to eliminate them. It is essential to manage debts carefully and get rid of them as soon as possible.

At this point you need to stay positive and remember that if you start experiencing stress over your financial situation it will affect how you handle it. The order of the day is to continue paying your debts of regularly unless you want your credit rating to plummet.

Step one is to sit down and list all your monthly expenses and place them into columns of those that must be paid and those that you can live without. It is a fact that when you pay for goods or services using cash instead of your credit card that the spending will automatically reduce.

Any spare money can then be placed in a special fund to help with your debt relief payments and although it will take some time for a reasonable amount to accumulate, you will see the benefits in time. By reducing the amount of entertainment you have on a regular basis will allow even more money to go into your fund and your debts will disappear faster.

Whilst home refinancing is a way to pay off your debts many people try to reduce their outgoings instead, this just gives the person a bigger mortgage but this just increases the amount you will pay in the future. Although this is a great way to raise spare cash in the short term you may not think that way a few years later so consider if this is really right for you.

You can use cash to pay for your credit card debts and so reduce the monthly payments and help with your debt relief and although your cash flow will increase, so will the amount owed on the credit card. If re-financing your home does not work then you must consider filing for bankruptcy but this step should not be taken before you take specialist advice from a bankruptcy attorney.

There are occasions to avoid bankruptcy, individuals use the money that has been accumulating in their individual retirement accounts but it has serious consequences for your future financial security.

Should you decide to use your IRA then be aware of how it will affect your long term financial future and you may just reconsider this as a method of debt relief.
