Keep in mind that your program's length of time may vary based on your situation and that you should be wary of anyone who tells you that they can quickly fix your financial troubles. When you enter the program, you are responsible for putting money away into an account; these funds will go toward paying your creditors.
Throughout the program, you are responsible for your debts, and your creditors are within their rights to call you or even sue, though this is rare. While Premier Debt Help can help you manage your collection call, it cannot and should not promise to stop them.
