Although there are thousands of different debt settlement companies, they all tend to utilize the same general process. First they will help you total up the debt that you want to settle, whether it be credit card, medical debt or other types. Next they will estimate the amount you will pay into your debt settlement bank account each month and how long that will take. Again, these decisions are not out of your hands, you will work with your settlement company to agree upon something that works for you. After the payment arrangements have been decided the settlement bank account will be open and your payment plan will begin.
Throughout your payment plan the communication with your debt settlement company should continue. The settlement company will be available for questions you may have or to aid with any issue that may arise.
