What to Do about Debt Relief?

Apr 10, 2008
Debt can be a terrible burden as it often creeps up on an individual who hasn't recognized they have a problem; admitting there is a problem is a good start as it will allow the person to seek help and regain control of their finances. There are many ways to provide debt relief but whichever you choose, you must have a degree of commitment to being debt free or it will not work. The only way out of this situation is by learning how to control your money.

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. It is often the case where a loan is taken out but circumstances change and it becomes a burden but you need to continue the repayments.

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.

A good way to help with your debt relief situation is to put spare amounts of money aside and although it may take a while to accumulate, this type of fund can help pay off small debts. If you are someone who enjoys going out for a meal of other entertainment on a regular basis then you need to cut back and you will be surprised how much money you can save each month.

There are times when debts are mounting and there is equity in your home it may seem like a good idea to refinance your mortgage and pay off your debts but this just means they will last much longer. However, prior to adopting this option, think about whether your choice of debt repayment is instrumental in giving you money and if the answer is yes, then will this method be ideal but there are other ways too.

An easy, but expensive in the long run is to take out cash from your credit card to pay for the monthly bill, although this is not really a good idea. If your debt is so high that you have to file for bankruptcy because a re-mortgage option hasn't worked then you should consult a bankruptcy attorney for the best advice.

It is possible to withdraw funds from your individual retirement account and avoid bankruptcy but this will seriously undermine your financial position when you retire. There is far too much to lose with this option so you would be better advised to find alternative answers and learn debt relief methods that are more fiscally responsible
