Options for Managing Debt and Credit:

Here are some common solutions available for addressing debt and improving your credit score:


 1. Debt Consolidation Loan: A loan used to consolidate multiple debts into a single payment. This option may not be viable for individuals with low credit scores or high amounts of debt.


2. Enrolling with a Debt Consolidation Firm: These firms negotiate with creditors to reduce the total amount owed. This option doesn’t directly improve your credit score; it may initially lower it.


After resolving your debt, you’ll likely need a credit repair company like Novo Credit Repair to remove negative history from your credit report.


3. Filing for Bankruptcy: This can resolve civil debt but will appear on your credit report for 10 years.

Post-bankruptcy, hiring a credit repair company such as Novo Credit is advisable to remove the bankruptcy record and any included accounts.


4. Hiring a Credit Repair Company: A credit repair company, like NovoMyCredit, works to remove or limit negative information on your credit report.


We challenge the validity of accounts reported by creditors, ensuring they are 100% verifiable.


Our approach leverages federal consumer reporting laws to help improve your credit score legally and permanently.

Additional Considerations:

 •  Small Claims Court: For debts under $10,000, it’s rare for creditors to pursue legal action as lawyers cannot represent companies in small claims court.


 •  Statute of Limitations: Civil debt has a statute of limitations of four years. This period resets with any activity or payment on the negative account. You can check what the statute of each state is through Bankrate. 


 •  Impact on Credit Score: The date of last activity and the status of accounts impact your credit score more than the amount owed. Negative remarks from creditors can significantly harm your score.
