Once credit card debt has dug its way in deep, cutting back expenses is a no brainer.

Cutting out the lattes won’t begin to make up the increases in interest and fees these creditors have manged.

A new set of credit card laws are being phased in. Most are in effect now.

With 9 months to prepare the card issuers had plenty of time to run up rates and run down credit limits.

If you can make payments a professional debt management program can lower those rates so you can put much more of your payment to paying off the balances.
