While many people have become accustomed to easy credit and refinanced mortgages, the increase in unemployment has made people realize that they cannot be sure about what the future will bring, so they are less likely to secure a debt for any extended length of time. In as recently as the 2011, the extension of consumer credit remains weak; consequently delinquencies and defaults are also dropping to all-time lows. As expected, with fewer people qualifying for or taking out loans of any kind, the need to debt counselors has dropped, with many smaller companies going out of business for a lack of new clientele. Once a client has been helped, and removed from his or her oppressive debt, they will hopefully not be back for any repeat business. For this reason, without a steady flow of new financial clients, many debt counseling companies are simply closing their doors. One of the biggest factors in determining the current state of affairs for the national, personal debt market takes place right after Christmas. With all the holiday gifts being purchased in November and December, there has always been an increase in the debt counseling business running from January through March. In January of 2012, this number was sharply decreased, indicating that individuals are learning to be more cautious with their money these days. Not only was the demand much smaller at the start of 2012 but the overall demand for debt counseling has continued to drop all year long. This is both good and bad. It helps to weed out those who are not doing very well in this business, and it allows those who a proficient to move into a larger sphere. Many people who have debt dont understand that they can take advantage of a professional debt counselors service, combine their debt; reduce overall payments, improve their credit, and get truly debt free within a matter of several months. One of the best lessons learned from this trend, is that people have come to realize that debt counseling is not just for those who are in a desperate situation. Small businesses are getting good advice, and learning how to maximize their profits in ways they had not even considered before. There are still many companies, and individuals that still carry around more than $10,000 of debt simply because they have not taken any steps to address it, and dont feel they need to. For many, they assume that a certain amount of debt is to be expected. This is never the case. Cash businesses are always in a strong position, and learning how to leverage it is what smart money management is all about. You dont have to be broke, to get debt counseling.

Debt counseling is not just for the desperate, it is a good business move, and routinely practiced within all business fields; quarterly, bi-annually, or annually. Unless you keep an eye on the bottom line, you will not be getting all that is coming to you. Debt counseling can include much more than getting creditors to stop calling. With the right advice, business owners can maximize their profits, take advantage of tax breaks, and learn new ways to make their business more profitable.

Many of the better debt counseling lawyers will offer their services nationally, and be proficient in the laws of each State, so they will be able to give you the most current and valid information. The more reputable ones will work on a commission based fee, where they only get paid after a negative report has been removed from your credit report, or they have achieved your agreed upon goals. No matter what your situation is, you will come out stronger in the end and wiser because you took the time to learn something new. Whether you have experienced no credit problems, credit problems, financial hardship, recent bankruptcy, divorce, or identity theft, speaking with a trained and experienced counselor is always a wise thing to do.
