Canton, Ohio Debt Relief Attorney FAQ



Questions & Answers About Debt Relief Options in Ohio


  • What are my debt relief options?

    The primary debt relief options are debt settlement, consolidation loans, loan modification, and filing for consumer bankruptcy.

  • Will I have to pay income taxes on a 1099 sent from a creditor in a debt settlement?

    Receiving a Form 1099 for cancellation of debt from a creditor, does not automatically mean that you must include that amount in your taxable income. Tax Attorney Ken Sheppard can help you determine if that cancellation of debt by the creditor must be included in your taxable income for the tax year the debt was canceled.

  • How does loan consolidation work?

    Loan consolidation rolls your high interest credit cards and other debts into one monthly payment. Benefits may include: Faster payoff of the debts, lower monthly payment amount, and fewer payments to make each month.

  • Will I qualify for a consolidation loan & do I need collateral?

    The requirement for collateral when initiating a consolidation loan will depend on the lending requirements of the consolidation loan creditor. The lender will typically take into consideration your current debts, credit history, ability to pay, and available collateral.

  • How does a loan modification or mortgage modification work?

    Loan modifications are agreements between the lender and borrower to change the terms of a loan to help the debtor get back on track. Benefits may include a reduced payment, lower interest rate, removal of late fees or penalties, forbearance period, or other benefits to help keep your home, vehicle, or other property, and bring the loan back to or keep it in good standing.

  • Can I get a mortgage or loan modification even if I am behind on my payments?

    Lenders will approve mortgage or other loan modifications as a means to get the loan back on track as a performing loan. When considering a modification the creditor will review the ability of the borrower to keep up payments on the revised loan, the value of the property, and the value of the loan.

  • Are there options other than bankruptcy to save my house from foreclosure?

    There are numerous defenses which may be utilized to home foreclosure, these foreclosure defenses range from the lender filing improper paperwork to fraud on the part of the lender. A foreclosure defense attorney should review your situation and loan documentation in order to determine the best defense.
