Let me share my hobbies with you. I like to play, wondering around. Another thing that I want to tell you is that, I want to be honest and I like honest people.

How to come out from Debt!

This is really been a major concern now a day that how can we come out from “debt”. Many of us are having this problem and searching the solution of this. Here I am trying to give some of the tips which may help!If you have problem in paying your debts to your creditors then you need to consult your sutiation with him and ask to give some more option to pay or to give more time. Some of the cases, the creditors accept the proposal of the debtor and agree to give some time to him. Here you are getting time to pay your debt off, but where the creditor is not agree to provide further time to you then you need to go to the professionals. The counsellors will be able to give you proper suggestions. He might take his consultant charges. There are some companies also who are giving free counseling.

Make yourself away from further loan. When you are in debt you should try to repay that first before taking any loan, otherwise the situation will become worst. It’s really very easy to get credit cards now a day and it is a fashion to have many credit cards. But you must remember your situation that you are in debt and further loan can push you in deep trouble. So say for “NO FURTHER LOAN”.

Present situation of Credit cards and Credit card debts!

This is the time when you will find people with full of plastic money (Credit cards) in their wallet instead of paper note. It is now a fashion to have more credit cards in your pocket. They are easily available also. But this availability is bringing you to the path of debt. Sometimes the amount of debt and interest is within your reach to pay and sometimes not. The problem starts then on. If you are unable to pay them on time it starts building rapidly.

  • Effects of credit card debts:

If you have a burden of debt in your life then it can make your life horrible. Suppose you are unable to pay your debts on time, then what may happen? At first the credit card company will ask you to pay your debts but if you are unable to pay them, they will ask the collection companies to collect the money from you at any cost. The collection companies may make your life even worse. They will call you at your home and harass you. Your family will not be out of their attack. Even they can call your office at the time of your work. It is really tough to work handsomely with these immense pressures. This situation will force you to do wrong work and then the pressure from your Boss. So think about your situation now, in your home the phone calls of the collection agencies and in the work the pressure of your Boss. You will feel that you are just pasting by both ends.

  • Solution of it:

The best solution is to control the use of your credit cards. The best thing is limiting your number of credit cards first. Use one or two at the time of any necessity. But if you already in immense amount of debt and unable to see any way to pay it in full with huge interest then “credit card debt consolidation” is the best way. There are lots of consolidation company available in the market, choose the best one and consolidate your debts. If you think that the consolidation is also not suitable for you as your condition is worse then you can choose “debt settlement” program. It may effect your credit report but it is far effective than to file Bankruptcy.

· What is Fixed Rate Mortgages (FRM) ?

It is that kind of Mortgage where you are to pay a fixed rate of interest. It will offer you security as during the term of your loan the rate will not change. It will also give you peace of mind and will allow you to plan ahead for your future.

Some important queries of Bankruptcy

We all know the problems a person face after filing bankruptcy. There are some questions which are in our mind when we discuss about filing bankruptcy. Let me discuss some of them:

  • What about the credit after filing bankruptcy? Would it be possible to get credit after filing it?

The answer is “Yes”. There are some companies that take chances to give credit to persons who filed bankruptcy in the past. The credit limit may not be high and also you may have to pay yearly fees for your credit.

  • Will it be possible to take mortgage loan after filing bankruptcy?

Yes, you will get mortgage loan but after one or two years when you are discharged from bankruptcy. But the key factor of getting a loan is to show the bank or lender that the money problem you had is past and you are very much determined not to have it in the future.

  • Can the Govt. take the pension to pay off tax debt?

Yes, the Government has the right to take your pension to pay off your tax debt. Not only that they can even take money from your other savings account.
