About This Site

For more than five years, it’s been our goal to help our readers find a way to resolve their debts that are in collections. We’ve written an affordable ebook to guide them through the process, and we’ve answered literally thousands of questions from readers about their personal situations.

For the large part, this site is a labor of love. We have spent countless hours providing a lot of free information and assistance to our readers. Both of the authors of the content on this site have full-time jobs and so we fit in our work on this site as best we can in the time we have available.

Income Disclosure

We earn some income from various affiliate and marketing arrangements. We’re not getting rich from this site, but those arrangements allow us to continue to pay the expenses of running the site and bring us a small amount of income. We may be compensated for the following:

  • Referrals to consumers who use other online programs that provide expert answers to questions;
  • Marketing consumer law services such as FDCPA and bankruptcy assistance; 
  • Ads served through companies such as Google (We don’t control the specific ads that appear on our site.); 
  • Referrals to services that help consumers negotiate settlements on their debts.

The crucial question for us is whether a product or services is reputable, affordable and will help our readers. We won’t recommend something just because we’re offered payment to endorse or promote it.

We are not attorneys and we don’t provide legal advice. As always, we encourage you to do your homework and check out individuals and companies before you hire them. If you are already working with an attorney, we urge you to ask them your questions. After all, they will be familiar with your situation and the laws in your state.

We hope that you find DebtCollectionAnswers.com helpful in your efforts to put your debts behind you!
