Debt Counselling

The debt counselling helps people with low income, heavy debt and low allowance achieve an overview of the debt and administrate the repayment. 

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

  • Help to identify the economical situation, for example an overview of the debt, budget and repayment plan.
  • Help to manage the debt, for example advice on the opportunities of cancellation of debt, and help to negotiate with the creditors.  
  • Information about, for example, meetings in bailiff's court and with debt registers.

Telephone- and e-mail counselling can only be used for isolated questions such as “What does it mean to go to the bailiff's court?” or “Am I liable for my spouse's debt?”
