How is it different from debt consolidation or credit counseling?

Debt consolidation or credit counseling is a more traditional debt reduction option, which lowers your interest rates, monthly payments, and fees, but does not directly reduce the amount you owe. However, debt consolidation can help you get out of debt faster by lowering your interest rates and helping you pay more each month towards the amount you owe, and pay less in interest. Unlike with debt settement, you do not need to be behind in your payments to use debt consolidation or credit counseling (although you can be).
