After my husband’s illness we lost his income and the calls and threats of lawsuits started piling up. I didn’t have the slightest idea how to navigate our situation and our credit specialist took a look at all our debts and helped devise a plan. We got a loan modification to save our house and declared bankruptcy to get out from under the suffocating debt, we couldn’t have done this without CAC.

Before finding CAC my credit was terrible due to some stupid choices. My wife was upset because we couldn’t qualify for a mortgage loan because my credit was in the low 500s. Fast forward 7 months later and our median score is now 650. Our loan officer called me yesterday to say that we got approved for a mortgage.

I own a plumbing company and after using a large franchise tax shop (one with 2 initials) I received an IRS audit notification letter. I didn’t know what to expect and the franchise tax shop couldn’t offer me any advice. So, I turned to CAC, where my lawyer was able to review my taxes, and spoke to the IRS agents and negotiated for me. I ended up getting a return on my taxes! Thank you CAC!

I was working 45 hours per week and I was paying all my bills on time. But after paying off all my monthly debts and student loans I was barely left with $500 a month in disposable income that doesn’t even cover gas or groceries! A friend recommended Credit Advisors Council. I called and got connected to an attorney. Before I knew it, he had filed some paperwork for me and he got my debts consolidated and he even got my student loan forgiven!
