Many reasons can lead an individual, married couple or business to face financial crisis. The most common of these are unexpected medical expenses, temporary or permanent loss of employment, divorce, out of control credit card debt or a number of unanticipated expenses. No matter what the reason is, when people face a financial crisis, they become overwhelmed with the volume of bills coming in the mail, debt collectors calling constantly, fear of lawsuits and fear of repossession and foreclosure.
