Debt Consolidation in Colorado

Colorado MapThe 2008 great recession wreaked financial havoc on a number of Americans. Although the federal government has declared the economy to be out of the woods and slowly rebounding, many consumers still are suffering with the debt they incurred due to lost jobs and stagnant salaries.

The average debt in Colorado is $74,340, with 31.2 percent of that currently in collections, according to statistics provided by the Urban Institute. Consumers who are struggling with debt have options in Colorado. They can seek credit counseling, apply for debt consolidation programs or, as a last resort, file for either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. While consumers decide which option is best for them, they have protections afforded to them from debt collection agencies.

Within the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, collectors are required to treat consumers fairly and are prohibited from harassing consumers by requiring them to call only during set hours of the day, and never are they permitted to contact a consumer at their place of employment. Consumers also have the right to put a request in writing for the collection agency to stop calling them about the debt, which the agency must honor.

Consumer credit counseling agencies are able to assist consumers with debt consolidation by negotiating on their behalf with creditors. Working with a credit counseling agency can help consumers to get out of debt in as little as two to four years. They also may be able to negotiate with creditors to lower the total amount owed.
