What are debt settlement services?

The first and most important thing debtors need to understand is what debt settlement services can do for them.

As a rule of thumb, they help to settle your debt with creditors.

This makes them a suitable approach for a variety of financial situations that have resulted in accrued liabilities.

Our impartial and professional debt advisors can administer two types of debt settlement services: Filing for personal bankruptcy or filing a consumer proposal.

In both cases, once the process has been approved, your debts are settled with your creditors, which puts an end to all legal actions and pursuits.

Depending on the choice of debt settlement services, your trustee will negotiate an affordable debt amount, including reduced payment terms and interest rates.

Debt settlement services don’t protect your credit ratings.

Filing for personal bankruptcy will result in an R9 rating, while a consumer proposal will create an R7 score.

They don’t cancel your debts overnight.

But they cancel all creditors’ actions taken against you as a result of debts.

Debts will appear in your credit report for a number of years after the settlement is completed.

What if debt settlement isn’t right for me?

Our debt relief specialists can also help people look at other options.

Indeed, we always assess your financial situation carefully before suggesting debt settlement services.

We consider what is best for you based on your:


  • Income;
  • Assets;
  • Payment duration preference;
  • Other financial goals;
  • Personal situation.


As a result, we also provide impartial and objective advice when dealing with credit counselling companies, consolidation loans, money management issues, and credit rebuilding strategies.
