When I spoke with the team, they went through all the forms and explained everything, what is expected of me and what they can do for me. They made it so my debt payments are reasonable. As well, they are also going to work with you to rebuild your credit. One usually knows what went wrong, but don’t know how to get out of it and rebuild so you don’t make the same mistakes twice and this is what they will help me with.
