[FONT=Calibri][/FONT] I have been searching high and low to find out how to qualify for a deferment, but I just keep seeing the same info over and over. I see general descriptions, but I want to see how to qualify for financial hardship reasons and I am not unemployed.

[FONT=Calibri][/FONT] I am looking for a deferment because I have excessive debt. Credit cards, husbandâ€™s medical bills, house in foreclosure. If you look at my current debt to income, it is obvious I canâ€™t make the bills that I have now. My first payment will not be due until next month.
[FONT=Calibri][/FONT] Can anyone offer any assistance on how I can get a deferment in my situation? The internet is full of general guidelines, of which it seems I don't qualify; however, I have found some short blurbs saying that I may qualify for deferment if I have an excessive debt to income ratio. Does anyone know about this, or have any advice on how to qualify for deferment this way?
[FONT=Calibri][/FONT] I would like to get as much info as I can before I call my servicer for options so I know if they are really doing everything they can to assist me. Thanks

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.
