When a lender makes a loan with no asset held as collateral, it does so only on the faith in your ability and promise to repay the loan. If you fall behind on your payments, they generally cannot claim your assets for the debt While on a default on the loan they can’t claim your assets as repayment for your debt, the lender may take other actions to get you to pay what you owe such as Hiring a debt collector Wage garnishment Reporting of debt to credit bureaus affecting your credit score
Secured debts are secured by an asset, such as a house or car. The asset serves as collateral for the debt (hence why it’s called a “secured” debt).

Minimum credit card payments allow you to pay the least amount possible, month-by-month. minimum payment is usually calculated as a percentage of your total debt plus any fees, such as interest, that have been added to your balance. Minimum card payments are considered good for the short-term debts, in the long run, they simply not advisable because On the surface, minimum card payments can seem like an affordable idea, but in the long term, minimum card payments are extremely costly. Minimum payments are needed to keep the debt current are small compared to the balances. Yet, as your balances reach the credit card limit your credit score declines. A lower credit score could result in the credit card company lowering your credit limit and/or raising the rate, making it harder to pay off the debt.
One way to pay more than the minimum payment is to make multiple credit card payments in one month. After making the minimum payment on time, any additional payments will help decrease your balance even faster. And that can also reduce the interest charged over time.
There are a few ways to help lower your credit card minimum payment. You might try making fewer purchases with your card until your balance decreases. A lower balance could mean less interest charged, which can lead to lower minimum payments.
You could also try to make payments that are more than the minimum amount. Paying more than the minimum amount can help reduce your balance sooner and lead to lower payments over time. These approaches can also lower your credit utilization ratio, which may help improve your credit score
NO, monthly minimums change for month-to-month factors affecting the changes are.

Additionally, missed payments can also impact your credit score especially if you’re late by more than 30 days.
Paying more than the minimum payment can help you cover the interest charged while also decreasing the total balance on your card. Paying more than the minimum amount also helps limit the interest you’ll owe over time. And the less interest charged, the lower your minimum payments could be.
pay the minimum amount and make fewer purchases with your card, you might be able to pay down the balance on the card. The minimum payment required may help keep your account in good standing. And you typically won’t face any late fees or penalties. But if you don’t pay your account balance in full every month, you will be charged interest.
Bankruptcy involves a court proceeding in which a judge and court trustee examine the assets and liabilities of individuals and businesses who can’t pay their bills and decide whether to discharge those debts so they are no longer legally required to pay them. The disadvantage of filing for bankruptcy, is you stand to lose a lot more than just your credit score. Certain types of bankruptcy like Chapter 7 will require the liquidation of assets, including your home, life insurance plans, pension or savings, and more. Any of these items could be liquidated to pay off your debt, leaving you with even less than when you started.

Our approach towards filing for bankruptcy
Once you have considered every available option and have decided that filing for bankruptcy is your best option, we recommend you shouldn’t embark on the journey without the necessary guidance. As filing for bankruptcy is a legal proceeding you will be needing the guidance from our group of legal counsel and attorney who will help you better understand and navigate through the entire process till you reach your destination.
below are some of the steps to expect when filing for bankruptcy
Assets evaluation: This includes anything you own that has value, such as stocks, savings accounts, real estate, cars, collectibles, home furnishings, clothing, and art.
Debt identification & evaluation. This list should show the creditor, current balance, interest rate, and monthly payment for each of your debts. Include all debts, even those you’re current on paying and those you can’t discharge in bankruptcy.
Income evaluation. Include any money you’ve received for any reason in the past six months, any money you expect to receive in the future, how often you receive this money, and where it comes from. That includes regular wages, unemployment compensation, side job income, dividends and interest from investments, pensions, and money contributed to the household by other people, such as your spouse or family members.
Expense evaluation. Include your costs for rent or mortgage, food, utilities, medical expenses, clothing, taxes, transportation, child support, and alimony. When listing variable expenses, such as utilities, calculate an average based on the past year’s monthly bills.

The result of the total inquire will aid the attorney or legal representative attached to your file evaluate and chose which type of bankruptcy you are eligible for and how it can assist with you finances. if you need the proper guidance do not hesitate contact and seek help now
Most consumer debt can be eliminated through a bankruptcy discharge. If you forget to include a debt in the filing of bankruptcy paperwork, it will not be recognized for a discharge. Giving creditors the opportunity to ignore the discharge of that particular debt.
There is no minimum amount of debt to qualify for bankruptcy. It is also important to keep in mind that there are limits on how many times you can discharge your debts in bankruptcy and a time spacing for which you can file for bankruptcy.
Note: If your debt amount is relatively low, it may be a good idea to consider alternative solutions
It is certainly possible for an individual to file for bankruptcy without a lawyer (or “pro se”). However, the rules and procedures governing the bankruptcy discharge process are extremely complex, and it can therefore be very beneficial to an attorney with experience in bankruptcy law our debt relief team comprises of vastly experienced lawyers who have handled numerous bankruptcy cases with numerous scenarios.
Debt consolidation is a financial strategy, and a debt relief program involving the combination of several debts mostly unsecured —payday loans, credit cards, medical bills—into one monthly bill with the purpose of lowering the interest rates. Debt consolidation lowers interest rates, on multiple debts of the same kind rolling them into a single payment with the purpose of mitigating the interest rate and possible the amount in debt. A successful plan will reduce your monthly payment to an affordable rate and eliminate debt within a reasonable amount of time.
Our debt consolidation strategies
Credit Card Balance Transfer
Credit card balance transfers involves shifting credit card debts from one or many cards to another with a lower interest rate. Balance transfer offers only apply to credit card debt. When considering a balance transfer you should take into account the total amount of debt, you’re carrying on all cards, calculate how much you can pay toward the total debt during the low-APR window and then how much you will pay in interest after the rate reverts to a higher APR.
Consolidation loans / Personal loans
are effective tools used to mitigate debts Consisting of using loans to finance a combined multiple debt into a single debt payment. Example Let’s say you have $8,000 in credit card debt and owe $5,000 in medical bills. With a debt consolidation loan, you could pay off those balances with a single loan of $13,000, featuring only one monthly payment amount and one monthly due date. A single loan could make your finances easier to manage Instead of numerous payments, you would have just one recurring monthly payment. Consolidating your debt with a personal loan in most cases will be advised and considered a better option. Click below to know more about the various loan offers available to you.
Our thoughts on when debt consolidation is a good idea
- Your total debt excluding mortgage doesn’t exceed 40% of your gross income
- Your credit is good enough to qualify for a 0% credit card or low-interest debt consolidation loan
- Your cash flow consistently covers payments toward your debt
- Multiple indebted accounts with similar interest rates
Our method of approach towards Consolidation
The first step towards making debt consolidation possible will be identifying the various sources of the indebted account. calculating the total amount used to finance your account with your creditor’s monthly or the total amount you’re in off followed by the estimation of the average interest charged on each account by your creditors. The results of the estimation and inquires will be providing a baseline for a number of comparisons.Followed by a review of budget, income and expense, certain necessity expenses will be taken into account such as (food housing, utilities and transportation) finding out how much available funds is left to finance the principal and interest rates? The information yielded by the inquiries into the income and spending ratio gives a clear idea of the financing that will be needed to satisfy the debts additionally. You will be enrolled into a debt counselling program with feasible plans formulated preventing you from running up debt again.

FUND TYPE 101
Mutual funds are investment approaches allowing investors to collectively purchase financial products such as stocks, bonds or any other securities by collectively pooling funds together to generate the capital.
What are the benefits of investing in mutual funds?
Low investment and maintainace cost:
Mutual funds offer an affordable way to invest in a wide array of stocks without paying transaction fees for each individual stock held. When it comes to mutual funds the trading costs are lower than those for ETFs. Mutual funds always trade at net asset value (NAV), or the market value of its assets minus liabilities divided by the number of shares owned by investors additionally as the saying goes an expense shared is an expense halved. By pooling their assets with others, mutual fund investors cut theirinvesting expenses. “Mutual fund shareholders share the expenses of the fund proportionately based on the amount they have invested.
The nature of mutual funds makes it possible to invest in multiple stocks or bonds giving the investors an easy way to diversify their portfolio. Diversifying your investment significantly lowers the risk associated with a single investment performing poorly. The beauty of mutual funds is every dollar you invest is diversified. “When you invest in a mutual fund, your money is pooled with the money of all the other investors in that fund allows the fund to buy dozens, hundreds or even thousands of different investments. Every dollar you invest is then allocated proportionately across all of these investments.
Mutual funds offer investors access to active strategies and the benefits of professional money management comprised of a professional money manager or an investment team setting the fund’s strategies, researching investments, making trades and monitoring the fund’s performance.
Easy to access and track
Few investments, if any, are easier to buy than a mutual fund. While most SMAs require an intermediary to access, investors can buy mutual funds themselves in a self-directed brokerage account and with their low investment minimums, “mutual funds are easy to purchase for virtually any type of investor, even at a small scale.
What factors should I consider before investing in mutual funds?
All mutual funds have an objective without exceptions, Check if the fund’s objective and yours align so that your goals are also fulfilled. What do you want from your mutual fund investment? Are you saving for your retirement, your children’s college or investing money for future generations? The answers to these questions can help you narrow down which funds would work best. Choosing a fund with similar objective makes your investment reach its goal faster and better.
Time horizon & Exit load
Mutual funds are typically better suited for long term investors. If you think you’ll need to liquidate your funds in the near future, say within three to five years, then a mutual fund may not be the best option because the return in that amount of time – once removing the cost of fees – may not be enough to make the investment worth it.Exit load is another cost that you directly incur. It is a fraction of the NAV that you receive and thus, leaves a hole in your investment value. So, the lower exit load a fund offers, the better is it for you. Having said that, it only comes into play if you wish to sell your units. It is always beneficial that you stay invested for a long term to reap good returns from any mutual fund.
Fund performance & Risk tolerance
Ensuring that you measure the performance over a significantly long period so that you know the pattern and can make a good judgment evaluating the kind of risks the fund has exposed you to over the estimated period of time while checking if there was any clogging of risk-adjusted returns. Understanding your risk tolerance can help you select funds with strategies and asset allocations that fit this profile.
Some of the known risk associated with Mutual Funds.
It is no secret that investments in generally involves risk and reward and mutual funds are no different indicated below are some of the common risk attributed to any mutual fund investment.
Portfolio managers can’t guarantee the performance of the fund, creating potential for loss of principal on the investment.
Always possible with mutual funds is principal risk, the risk that the investment will go down in value and lose money from the original amount invested.
This is the risk that a bond will pay off earlier than expected. When interest rates fall, there is a chance that the issuer of the bond will decide to cut losses and retire its debt via old bonds, then reissue new bonds at a lower rate of payout.
Statistics by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, (sec) indicates market volatility often resulting to the rising and falling of the value of stocks, “posing one of the greatest potential danger in stocks funds.” Market risks has shown a habit over time to move in cycles for both a long and short period of time, and are always unpredictable.
Popularly known as exchange rate risk, is strictly for the investments across foreign securities. Currency is eminent as a result of the rising or falling value of the dollar against foreign currencies resulting in a reduction in returns for investors.
