Explaining Debt Litigation

Litigation Involving Debts

When a person gets behind in their bills, many creditors will take whatever legal steps they can to recover the money that they are owed.

This can include a lawsuit, as well as:

  • Wage garnishment
  • Foreclosure
  • Repossession

When a creditor files a lawsuit, they are seeking a court judgment that you owe the creditor the amount of money stated in the suit. There are various ways to challenge these types of lawsuits, including illegal or irregular practices regarding the credit / loan agreement, payments that were misplaced or not applied, and other mistakes made by the creditor that can weaken their case. A San Diego bankruptcy lawyer should be contacted immediately if a creditor has filed a lawsuit to collect a debt. A knowledgeable lawyer can provide skilled legal advice and capable representation in court.
