How to find a reliable debt relief company in Montana

Here are a few tips to help you find a Montana debt settlement or consolidation company that will suit you the best.

Go through the DebtCC Ranking Chart

You can check out the Company Ranking Chart available in this community. It'll help you find out the best consolidation/settlement company in your state.
The Ranking Chart is where you'll come across companies ranked on their company profile, service background, and other details. You'll learn about the accreditation (whether it is certified by BBB or IAPDA) received by the company and their fee structure. Then you'll find the testimonials that the companies have received from their clients. You can then compare the company details and services in order to choose the best Montana debt consolidation company.

Consolidation loan makes you pay more in the long run

With a Massachusetts debt consolidation loan, you pay low interest on a monthly basis. But, because it is a long term loan, you'll be paying substantial amount in interest over the life of the loan.

Cut down unnecessary expenses

It is essential to cut down unnecessary expenses and lead a frugal life when you're paying off bills with a Massachusetts debt consolidation program. This will save you from incurring additional bills.

Avoid credit insurance

Financial institutions sometimes offer credit insurance policies along with personal consolidation loans. These insurance policies cover your loan payments if you fall sick, die, or lose your job. The insurance premiums may raise your monthly loan payment by $1500-2500 depending upon the insurance company the lender uses. It is better to avoid these policies as they can add on to your payments.

Case study

Scenario: Just 4 months from freedom... Not a single lender has filed a lawsuit till date.. What are my chances of getting rounded up prior to SOL, if I apply for a car loan? Will my credit be tracked?
There are 2 1099's already in my name. One of them is from Citi which is in a state of turmoil after it was slapped with a major suit regarding credit collection.
Then there's Chase. It was Chase which sent me the 1099 first and hastily wrote off my debt.
Regarding the rest, I'm afraid I don't know exactly. I'm in Montana.
So, i'm safe?

1099 form will report all your forgiven debts as income and hence, you'll have pay taxes on them.
Creditors can collect debt forever. But due to statute of limitation (SOL), there's a deadline to seek debt payments via the court system. Once SOL is over, then a creditor can't sue you, even though he can ask you for repayments.
Unless SOL in MN is 8 years, you may be slapped with a delinquent debt lawsuit any moment.
An effective way to prevent a creditor lawsuit is to file for bankruptcy protection. Or else, you can go negotiate your debt and pay less than the actual debt amount.
