I Want to Get Out of Debt Now But Don’t Want to File Bankruptcy of Settle the Debt. – Stefanie

“Dear Steve,

I am looking to get out of debt. I do not want to file bankruptcy or settle the debt. I just want one monthly payment to pay it all back. I have fair credit, own a home and am unable to refinance because there is no equity. Between my husband and I, we have about $35,000.00 in unssecured debt.
thank you.

What’s the best plan for us?


Dear Stefanie,

What strikes me off the top is how you’ve already put conditions on how to best deal with your debt. I’m worried that unless you examine all of the possible solutions and evaluate them for how they may best address your situation, you may be making a big mistake.
