Lawsuits And Garnishments In Michigan
Are you being reminded by your creditors on a daily basis of your insurmountable debt. When you are unable to pay your medical bills, credit cards, loans and other debts, it is likely that you are getting calls and letters from the companies you owe. It is also highly likely you are being harassed for payments.
When you file for bankruptcy, the calls and letters from creditors must immediately stop. Creditor calls and letters must go to your bankruptcy attorney. At the law offices of USADebt, we bear that burden confidently. Our team of attorneys will keep you informed of the bankruptcy process and advise you on what decisions are right for your unique financial situation and your long-term financial well-being.
They Are Threatening To Take My Home. What Can I Do?
Creditors will sometimes use threatening messages to get you to pay. They may also file lawsuits against you that allow them to garnish your wages or repossess your property. Even if you are close to foreclosure and repossession, there is still time to prevent this from happening.
Once your case is filed in bankruptcy court, a case number is assigned and an “automatic stay” is placed on all creditor actions against you. This includes collection actions such as phone calls and letters regarding:
- Wage garnishments
- Seizure of property
In Michigan, these creditor actions are legal if you have not filed Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. In many cases, the only way to truly protect yourself and not lose everything is to speak with a lawyer who can help you pursue the right debt relief methods for your needs.
