We Got Our Loan Modification But Now Need to Deal With Our Other Debts. – Sandy

“Dear Steve,

We were in a bad/pick-a-payment/bi-weekly mortgage loan and in our struggle to keep our house, we used credit cards to supplement paying our household expenses. We have found ourselves with nearly $40,000 of debt. After three attempts, we finally have a loan modification, so now are making every effort to ‘catch up’. We have not used credit cards since receiving the loan mod.

It will take us forever to pay off our balances just making minimum or slightly higher payments so we are researching to find a service to help us negotiate lower interest rates, payments, and possibly even lower balances. But, there are so many ads out there for such and we want to be sure it is a legit organization. Which would you recommend….a Debt Management Plan? or Debt Mitigation (which apparently involves attorneys, such as Nat’l Consumer Law Group)? What are the pros/cons of each, or are there other services available which would be better? What is the best way to go about this so that we can be debt-free in 3-5 years?
