Chris had his own business. Everything went fine for a while, but the recession hit hard. Utility bills built up and he wasn’t bringing in enough money. He also had his wife and daughter to support and rent to pay, but he was trying to keep his home life as normal as possible. Not wanting to worry his wife, he didn’t share his problems. He still took them out at weekends.
“It was really quite bad. And from there it just snowballed. It got a bit - a lot - unmanageable,” he says.
Chris found SDS online and requested a call back. “My mobile phone had been shut down,” he laughs, “so I went online, typed in my details and they gave me a call back really quickly, which was great.”
“SDS did everything I was really hoping they would do. I had spent so long trying to deal with the problem myself it had actually driven quite a big stake between me and my wife… But they understood that. They said it was a common thing with people in financial difficulty. They just talked me through it step by step. They were really helpful. It was like talking to a normal person!”
We recommended Chris apply for Sequestration.
