Also, according to the available disposable income the planner decides upon the repayment figures, time span etc. The debt management companies can advice for free or can charge you a monthly fees depending upon the terms of the company.

After applying for a debt management program, your creditors won't harass you anymore. The debt management company decides the amount to be paid to each creditor every month for a particular duration. And the creditor can not demand any change in this arrangement. The debt management company takes the entire responsibility and you don't need to deal with the lenders. It can manage the funds varying from ?3000 to ?250000.

The company sends the repayment program to the lender who has to approve on the same. If 75 percent of the creditors (by value) agree then the program is valid and is effective.

Hence, when you feel that managing so many debts is out of your reach and you are facing a financial crisis then you must opt for debt management.
