Debt Counselling

THE PROCESS EXPLAINED

Debt Counselling is a responsible way of getting financially ‘rehabilitated.’ Your Clientèle Legal lawyer will help you appoint a Debt Counsellor in your area. Your income and expenses will be assessed and a new budget will be agreed upon.

The Debt Counsellor will contact all your creditors and negotiate a repayment plan on your behalf. A Magistrate’s Court will confirm the repayment plan. You will then make a single payment every month, which will be distributed amongst your creditors. Once your debt has been cleared, the Debt Counsellor may issue a clearance certificate that shows you have been rehabilitated.
