My Dad just passed away and my mother was in the dark regarding finances.. I have a few questions if anybody can help..1) Apparently a lot of his credit card debt is in her name also.. She did not receive much life insurance, and really cannot afford to pay off the credit card debt.. I am thinking of just having her not pay the credit card debt.. Will the credit card companies settle with her? THere is no estate as they were co-owners of the house.. Her credit score is not an issue as she does not need credit any longer.. Can they come after her life insurance money? Any advice would be greatly appreciated
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
