Debt Relief Agency
What is a “debt relief agency”?
A “debt relief agency” is a person who, for compensation, provides bankruptcy assistance to a person who owes debt incurred primarily for personal, family, or household purposes, and has less than $164,250 in non-exempt assets. The bankruptcy petition preparer is specifically included in the definition of a debt relief agency without regard to the nature or amount of the debt; the debtor’s attorney is not specifically included, but would be included by the definition, subject to the requirements for nature of debt and amount of non-exempt assets.

CHOOSING A DEBT MANAGEMENT SERVICE PROVIDER
For genuine debt relief, a debt management program is preferable to settlement or a loan. But how can you choose among the debt relief agencies that offer this type of service?
There are two main criteria to keep in mind:
- The quality of the customer service that the agency provides. To identify reputable debt consolidation companies that treat customers fairly, check with the Better Business Bureau. Customer reviews, if you can find them, are another good source of information about a particular debt consolidation firm that you’re interested in.
- The costs of the debt management program. Debt relief agencies vary in the enrollment and monthly maintenance fees they charge, so this is a good way to compare different debt management programs.
