    Our Story

    In 1998 Peter Welker began his own personal insolvency and debt management business. When Peter began, his goal was to provide a personal and compassionate approach to helping people who were experiencing money problems. In 2006 Peter’s son Chris Welker took over his father’s business and founded Welker & Associates Inc. 

    Today Chris continues to offer the same high quality of service focused on helping individuals and families overcome their personal debt problems through affordable fee arrangements, flexible appointments and free initial consultations. Unlike most of their competitors, when you book an appointment with Welker & Associates Inc. you will meet with a Licensed Insolvency Trustee and not an estate administrator. 

    We feel that it is important for you to have your questions answered by the individual who will be responsible for your file. Since you will be meeting directly with a licensed trustee, your money problems will be dealt with more effectively and often in one meeting.

    Your Credit Report

    If you’ve been struggling with money problems for a long time it can be difficult to know where to start. As time passes, debts go into collections and get transferred from one company to another making it hard to keep track of who you owe and how much. Fortunately, we can help. With your permission, Welker & Associates Inc. has the ability to view your TransUnion credit report and help you figure out what you owe. Understanding the full extent of your debt issues is a critical first step in determining the best way forward.
