I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I need some help.
I had a hospital bill from several years ago it was only like $600-$900. At first I was okay with the garnishment, I had some money saved up and would be fine paying the total off each week. Well now I'm at the end of the garnishment and I got a letter from work (a copy the lawyer sent my employer) that states "The balance on the judgement and costs after applying your last check in the amount of $121.03 dated April 23,2015, is 342.92. However, interest has accrued on the accounts , in the amount of 1,050.08 which needs to be added to your balance. Therefore, the total balance due for judgement cost and interest is $1,393.00."
That's another 12 weeks, I can't afford that, I'll lose everything. And at the end of this 12 weeks is there going to be another thousand dollars worth of interest added? I don't know what to do. I'm meeting with a bankruptcy lawyer tomorrow, I don't think I need to file bankruptcy but I can't afford to pay my bills.
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
