Credit Card Debt
Credit Card Debt > About Us
Excessive credit card debt is a serious problem for many families in
America. In recent times, this problem has been exacerbated by
worsening economic conditions. Credit cards are convenient money
management tools that can help finance home improvements, higher
education, and other short term cash flow requirements. However,
credit cards do offer a temptation to live beyond one's means and run up
large outstanding balances. Unexpected medical expenses and job
losses are other common reasons for running up credit card balances
quickly. In these situations, the resulting credit card debt can
become difficult to manage, and in extreme situations, filing for
personal bankruptcy may be the only solution available.
However, in most cases, help is available. You may be able to negotiate lower interest rates with your creditors for your outstanding balances. Credit counseling services may be able to work out a budget with you and negotiate with lenders on your behalf for lower interest rates, extended payment schedules, or even debt reduction. You may also be able to consolidate high interest rate credit card debt into a lower rate home equity loan. However, a home equity loan typically requires a lien on your house, and the lender may foreclose if you do not make payments on your home equity loan.
