WALLSTREETESQ :

If your debt is $4000,

WALLSTREETESQ :

and you pay it off, that would help raise your credit, however, if you have paid the balance on time,

WALLSTREETESQ :

your credit would not have been lowered due to the balance alone,

WALLSTREETESQ :

if you have missed payments,

WALLSTREETESQ :

that would reduce your credit,

WALLSTREETESQ :

and paying off the debt, would increase your score within 6-12 months,
