Our primary goal is to provide you with debt consolidation, but in some cases when that can't be done, we can assist you with a debt settlement.
Although debt settlement may seem like the answer to all of your financial problems, there are certain facts that are important to remember.
Listed below are the most important things that you should bear in mind when enrolling in a debt settlement program.
There Is No Guarantee That Your Creditors Will Agree To The Debt Settlement Proposal
Please do not pin all your hopes on your creditors agreeing to our proposal for debt relief. They are under no obligation to do so, and as part of the negotiation process, it is highly likely that on the first approach, they will say no. However, this is where working with Pacific National Funding works to your advantage. We never give up, and we will continue to negotiate on your behalf. We have established excellent relationships with many creditors, and our team are experts at negotiating on your behalf.
Debt Settlement Is Not A Legally Enforceable Right
Although the concept behind the debt resettlement process is to help people in financial difficulty, and the government is eager for creditors to participate fully in the process, there is no legal obligation for them to agree to any debt settlement option. The responsibility lies on the borrower to demonstrate that they cannot afford any other payment options. Legally, creditors must be open to debt settlement, but they are under no obligation to agree or accept the terms we are offering on your behalf. In fact, the only right you have is the right to apply for debt settlement. Any laws which the government has developed in this area are mainly to do with protecting debtors from being constantly harassed by creditors. As with any debt situation, the most productive option will be in engaging with your creditors to come up with a mutually beneficial solution.
Debt Settlement Is Not The Preferred Option For Creditors
When it comes to the negotiation process, there are many options available to creditors, and it is essential to understand that a debt settlement is unlikely to be high up on a creditors list of preferred options. They have a responsibility to their shareholders to obtain the best deal, and in the majority of cases, debt settlement is unlikely to be that option. If they think that you have the financial capacity to pay off your debts in full, then they may agree to lower the interest rate but still require full payment of the outstanding balance. Another option they might suggest is to extend the payment period, which would then lower the monthly payment. You need to be prepared for any of these options, in case the debt settlement option is refused.

Your Step By Step Strategy For Settling Debts
he critical thing to remember when it comes to settling your debts is that your creditors want to recover as much money as possible. Although there are never any guarantees in this process, we have listed some tips and strategies to follow as you work your way out of debt. Even if your creditors have initially said no to debt settlement do not give up, it can be a long, slow, complicated process, but if successful it will be worth it in the end.
Write Everything Down
Although this may sound overly negative, work on the basis that if it is not written down, it did not happen. Your creditors may well be dealing with thousands of debtors, so it is in your best interests to keep a comprehensive record of all communication between you and your creditors. Keep a copy of every piece of correspondence you receive from your creditor, and if you are are using a debt negotiator, make sure that you are kept up to date with all communication.
Track Details Of All Phone Calls
Not every aspect of the process will be done via written correspondence. If you do need to speak to someone on the phone, always take their name and job title. Record the time and date of the phone call, and also anything that was discussed. Then write down everything in a letter, and send the creditor a copy, with a simple note at the beginning explaining that you are confirming the details of your recent conversation. Ask them to do the same as this will then verify what was said and ensure that there was no misunderstanding.
Patience is a Virtue
Although it is understandable that you want to put your financial problems behind you, the process is unlikely to move quickly. In some cases, the older the debt, the more willing the creditor may be to settle it, but if the creditor believes that you have the financial capability of paying it off, then they are much less likely to negotiate. In fact, in some cases, they may even decide to take out a lawsuit against you, so it is vital that you can demonstrate that you are financially incapable of making the payment.
Never Make Any Payments Until You Have A Proposal In Written Form
This might sound cynical, but before making any payments, it is essential that you have a written letter or email from your creditor which confirms the terms of any agreement. If you choose to make a payment, and the company then reneges on the deal, you have no proof that they ever agreed to that arrangement in the first place. It is also imperative that you understand the terms of any agreement to prevent problems arising in the future.
