Debt Review Process

Pioneer Debt Solutions’ debt review process takes place in four simple steps. After going through all the steps, customers usually become debt-free and end up with a better credit score than they had when they started the debt review process. 

Step 1

The first step is to complete the application. This application is to assess whether or not the debt counseling process is for you. By placing an application, a debt consultant will process your information to come up with solutions to your problems. However, this solution is for people that are over-indebted and cannot meet their credit obligations. This step is for free and doesn’t have any price attached to it

Step 2

The second step is to get your monthly payments reduced. Pioneer Debt Solutions negotiates with creditors for affordable rates. By taking the debt counseling solution, it means you will cease to be in contact with your creditors, Pioneer will be responsible for all communication with the creditors on your behalf. Interest rates on late payments are also negotiated so that you can save money

Step 3

The third step involves legal advice and legal representation. This step is only for those that have accepted to make use of the Pioneer Debt Solutions Debt consolidation services after making an application. Pioneer’s legal experts will represent you in court and make your restructured payment plan a court order. 

Step 4

Last but not least, you have to start paying your reduced installment every month. Payments will have to be made on time so a debit order is ideal to make timely payments. Should you fail to make payments as agreed, Pioneer will stop offering debt counseling services to you. When you successfully pay off your debt, a clearance certificate will be issued to you and to the credit bureaus to show that you have completed payments that were due.
