I’ve paid off a mountain of debts in my time, and my quick hints will help you focus on what needs to be done to keep your own debt under control. Make sure you follow my blog, so you don’t miss a single episode.
DO get professional help as soon as you can. As a first move, get on the phone to your local Citizen’s Advice Bureau. They’ve seen it all, and they’re trained to be helpful, not judgemental. Get an appointment with them and take along every scrap of information about you and your situation. Once they’ve studied the paperwork. they can help you take the next step in tackling your problem.
Don’t believe anything you hear from friends, or read online. Deal only in facts, and that’s the facts of your case, nobody else’s. Get all your information from registered, recognised sources. Everybody’s situation is different, and everyone’s debt is different, too. Don’t be tempted to take what may turn out to be very bad advice.
