  • Collection agencies are calling me.
  • I make payments, but my balances don't go down.
  • Payments are over one month behind on more than one bill.
  • I can't afford car insurance
  • We are getting divorced and have too many bills to pay.
  • There is a wage garnishment on my check.
  • My car is worth much less than I owe.
  • My payments are over 25 percent of my take home pay.
