    The experienced debt settlement specialists at Cibik Law are here to help people all across Pennsylvania and New Jersey take control of their credit card debt, late car payments & past due mortgages so that they can move toward a more financially secure future.

    Calls from creditors and debt collectors can make a person feel like their options are limited and the weight of carrying this stress alone can create a moment of feeling “stuck”.  The hopeless feeling of debt can make a person feel like there is no end in sight.  You can contact a “debt settlement company” to try and negotiate with your creditors OR you contact a real attorney, who can use all the tools available, afforded to individuals by the US Federal Bankruptcy Laws, to help you get the best settlement terms available.

    Steps a person should take before seeking additional debt relief options.

    First, try to contact your creditors and come to an agreement for a payment plan to bring your account back in good standing and before any collection efforts.

     

    If you already tried to reach out to your creditors and could not come to an agreement, or your debt is too overwhelming to handle, there is another option.    Bankruptcy.  We know there can be a negative connotation , but the reality is that for some people, a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, could be their best option for ridding themselves of their current debt and moving forward in life with a clean slate.  

     

    At Cibik Law, we will go above and beyond to ensure every avenue has been exhausted before we recommend the best solutions to settle your debts.   Stop the harassing collection calls, cease any legal actions against you or your property and build a plan together, to start rebuilding your finances, your credit and your financial freedom.   Most importantly is clearing your mind and body of the stress that comes with having debt.   

     

    BE AWARE: when researching the area of debt settlement companies, you may find many who offer “the perfect solution” to get you more money today and consolidate your debts into one monthly payment.   I always recommend all of my clients first ensure the efficacy of any debt solution offered to them and taking on more debt is generally NEVER the right option for most.
