California residents who are struggling with debt have options. The main debt-relief options are a debt management plan (DMP) administered through a nonprofit credit counselor, debt consolidation, debt settlement, and bankruptcy. You can schedule a free consultation with a credit counselor to discuss each option. If you want to move forward with a DMP or bankruptcy, the credit counselor can help you with next steps.
