FAQs About the Creditor’s Rights Practice Area

Can Creditors Garnish My Wages or Seize My Assets To Collect Debts?

It depends. In certain situations, creditors can garnish your wages or seize your assets.
Creditors do this in an effort to satisfy the debt that is owed to them. Thankfully, there are legal limitations and protections in place to prevent creditors from implementing abusive or unfair collection practices, meaning your rights are protected when these laws are upheld by creditors.

What Types of Debts Are Subjected To Creditors' Rights Actions?

Creditors’ rights actions are applicable to various types of debt. For example, credit card debt,
medical bills, personal loans, mortgages, auto loans, and business debt might face the effects of creditors’ rights actions.

Can Creditors Sue Me For Unpaid Debt?

Yes! In most cases, creditors are legally entitled to sue people or businesses to retrieve unpaid
debt. If creditors successfully sue you for unpaid debt, the bankruptcy courts can issue a
judgment against you as the debtor. This means that the creditor can pursue methods of
collecting the unpaid debt, including wage garnishment or bank levies.

What Legal Protections Are Available To Debtors Who Are Facing Creditors' Rights Actions?

Debtors who are facing creditors’ rights actions might face certain legal protections under both state and federal laws. One of these laws is known as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). There are also a number of consumer protection statutes that are relevant to these situations. Laws like these prevent abusive practices and unfair debt-collection attempts. They also make it possible for debtors to challenge the actions of creditors with a legal defense attorney or official bankruptcy proceedings.

What Types of Debt Are Covered By Creditor's Rights?

There’s a range of debt that is covered by creditor’s rights. In general, the types of debt that are included entail unpaid loans, credit card debt, medical bills, business debt, and other financial obligations where debtors owe creditors.

What Are Some Common Creditor's Rights Actions?

Some common creditor’s rights actions include filing lawsuits with the goal of obtaining
judgments against debtors, obtaining liens, implementing security interests in the property of debtors, garnishing wages, withdrawing funds from bank accounts, foreclosing on collateral, repossessing personal property or commercial real estate, and enforcing rights under loan agreements or contracts.
