Debt Collection Legal Questions and Answers

Debt Collection

Debt Settlement Agreement

Florida

Asked on Jul 5, 2023

Creditor rights in debt settlement agreements?

I recently entered into a debt settlement agreement with my creditor, but I am worried that my rights may be violated during the process. I am concerned that the creditor may not abide by the terms of the agreement, or that they may not provide me with the full protections that I am entitled to under the law. I am hoping to get some clarity on my rights as a debtor in this situation so that I can protect myself.

Diane D.

Answered Jul 14, 2023

Without seeing the settlement agreement, there is no way to tell if your rights, or what you believe to be your rights, are covered. Also, if they don't abide by the contract, you can take them to court.

Debt Settlement Agreement

Florida

Asked on Jun 30, 2023

Can a debt settlement agreement be transferred?

I recently received an offer from a creditor to settle a debt I owe. However, due to my current financial situation, I am unable to make the payments they are asking for. I am wondering if I can transfer the debt settlement agreement to another party, who would be able to pay the debt in full.

Diane D.

Answered Aug 1, 2023

Note Payable

New York

Asked on Oct 5, 2021

I need to sue on an unpaid promissory note

The note was written back in March 2019 I hired an attorney and he has done nothing for me! I made tons of requests to try to settle out of court with this man and he just keeps blowing me off

Matthew S.

Answered Oct 12, 2021

You need someone who will attempt to settle the matter for you and if that fails be prepared to sue on the note and take the necessary action to collect. This assumes the debtor has assets to collect against. It can take a while. I have had some folks pay relatively promptly, others several years. Communication between attorney and client is very important in this process. If you have no idea what is going on in your case you can get very anxious. I make sure you get consulted on each development and you get copies of each filing.

Debt Collection

Demand Letter

Washington

Asked on Sep 18, 2023

Citing laws in a demand letter?

I recently sent a demand letter to a person who I believe owes me money. I am trying to collect the payment they owe me, but they are refusing to pay. I included a few laws in the demand letter that I believe are relevant to my situation, but I am not sure if I have included all of the necessary laws. I would like to make sure I am citing all of the applicable laws in my demand letter so that I can ensure the payment is collected.

Merry A.

Answered Sep 19, 2023

Unfortunately, often, one can cite all the laws one wants, but the person who owes the debt may simply be unwilling or unable to pay. If the debt is for less than $10,000, consider filing in Small Claims Court in your county. Here is the statewide information: https://www.courts.wa.gov/newsinfo/resources/?altMenu=smal&fa=newsinfo_jury.scc In addition, many counties, such as King, have their own websites and lots of information. When you file in Small Claims Court, be sure to include copies of all relevent paperwork, including any letters you sent to the defendent. And request reimbursement for the debt, interest, the cost of filing the Small Claims case, and any related costs/expenses. Even if you win, however, you may not get paid - but if you win, you will have some other ways to collect, such as garnishing wages or a bank account. I'd be happy to help coach you through the Small Claims process if you'd like to request my help through ContractsCounsel.com

Debt Collection

Demand Letter

California

Asked on Sep 18, 2023

Demand letter and statute of limitations?

I recently received a demand letter from a creditor regarding an unpaid debt. The letter states that I must pay the full amount within 30 days or they will take legal action. I am concerned that the debt may be outside the statute of limitations, and I wanted to know what legal recourse I have in this situation.

Myrna L.

Answered Sep 24, 2023

If you are certain that the debt is time barred, debtor may not sue you. In California, there is generally a 4-year limit for filing a lawsuit based on a written agreement. Just make sure you don’t inadvertently restart the statute of limitations, i.e. acknowledge the debt.

Contracts Counsel was incredibly helpful and easy to use. I submitted a project for a lawyer's help within a day I had received over 6 proposals from qualified lawyers. I submitted a bid that works best for my business and we went forward with the project.

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.
