Since my xh and I have separated, I have been trying to figure out how to lower my monthly bills. I have a 2 loans and 2 cc that are maxed out due to me using them to keep our heads above water when trying to pay for his expenses as well. What I am paying monthly is RIDICULOUS.

I don't have the best credit. Its not bad, most websites say my credit is "fair". I have tried going through my bank for a personal loan (I have no collateral) and my score is not quite high enough. Does anyone have any advice on companies that will provide a loan to someone like me? Not the best credit, but I just need something to consolidate this debt and my monthly pymts

Maybe find a legitimate credit counselor that could help you consolidate all the loans/cc's into one? Just be careful as there are lots of scammy people out there claiming to be helpful but not.

Try a credit union. Sometimes they have more wiggle room than big banks.

I agree, check with a credit union. Consolidation would be a great solution!

Especially a non-profit credit union

I would look into consolidation as well. How much interest are you looking at with each loan?

Each loan and cc has a pretty high interest rate. like 24% (recovering from a bankruptcy that was discharged 3 years ago). I am having a hard time finding anyone LEGIT who will loan me the money to consolidate, and I do not have enough in my car to refinance (I owe more than its worth already). I will check out a credit union here by my job. I will open an account with them if they are willing to loan me the money. Prayers and good thoughts please!!!!

Have you looked into the peer to peer loans? The Lending Club is very popular right now. In some of my financial forums a few of the posters "loan" money, and my husband's favorite blogger has also loaned money through the lending club. Might be worth it to look into.
