Debt counseling

The debt counseling helps persons with low income, heavy debt and low available amount to get an overview of the debt and to help administrate the repayment. 

The debt counselling can take place as a personal meeting, a phone inquiry or as mail counseling. The debt advisers will always take the concrete situation into consideration and the debt counseling could for example contain:

  • Mapping of the economical situation, e.g. an overview of the debt, budget and repayment plan.
  • Help to manage the debt, e.g. advice on the opportunities of cancellation of debt and help to negotiate with the creditors.  
  • Information about e.g. meetings in bailiff court and debtor registers.

Telephone- and mail counselling is only for isolated questions such as “What does it mean to go to bailiff court?” or “Am I liable of my spouse’s debt?”
