Getting started is as easy as picking up the phone and calling one of our Specialists who will give you free consultation, with no obligations. We firstly explain how it works.

How long does it take to complete the program?
We recognize that each individual’s situation is unique, and we take every detail into consideration when planning a personalized program that works in conjunction with your budget.

What happens during my initial free consultation?
Our trained and experienced Specialists will take your situation into consideration and explain how debt mediation works. We then propose a specific plan based on your personal financial history and status. From there, your Augustus Hall Limited Advisor will guide you through the rest of the debt mediation process.
How does debt mediation differ from debt consolidation?
The names may sound alike but there is a great deal of difference. Debt consolidation programs combine all of your outstanding debt into one large new loan. You will still pay the entire principle amount of your debt plus the accumulated interest on the new loan. If you are unable to make payments, the lending institution can repossess your collateral. In contrast, debt mediation uses negotiation techniques to greatly reduce the principle amount of your debt allowing you to pay a smaller sum than you are currently paying. Typically, debt mediation takes around 36 months to complete and debt consolidation can stretch longer depending on the size and terms of the consolidation loan.
Do I have to combine all my debts, or can I pick certain debts?
The decision of mediating some or all of your debts is totally up to you. We are here to help you decide what strategies are best for you.

How does debt mediation affect my credit?
That depends on what your credit looks like when you enrolled in our debt mediation program.
