Through the NFCC, a local Consumer Credit Counseling Service will sit down with BOTH of you for free and help you analyze your income and expenses and explore your options. They can help you identify ways to cut your expenses and boost your income, and they can often contact your creditors on your behalf and help you enter into a legitimate debt repayment plan (not one of the rip-off debt consolidation services).

aoeuid - I went to the website, looked up my state, and it is not free. Whats up? Below is a direct copy and paste and I will provide the link at the end:
