PUT AN END TO CREDITOR HARASSMENT
Bankruptcy Lawyers in Fairfax Fighting for Your Rights
You should be aware of your rights as a consumer in the United States. Just because you owe money does not mean that you have no legal protection against abuse or harassment from your debt collectors. Federal laws are designed to limit the aggressive actions that creditors can take to collect money from borrowers in the U.S., including the following:
- Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA)
- Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA)
- Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) of 1991
If you have reason to believe that your FDCPA, FCRA and TCPA rights have been violated by an abusive or harassing creditor, let us help you. You could be entitled to compensation for any damages you may have suffered.
Can bankruptcy put a stop to creditor harassment?
Filing for bankruptcy initiates an automatic stay on all creditor actions. Once you have filed, your creditors may no longer contact you regarding your loans unless they receive express permission from the court. In addition, the court will not allow creditors to contact you regarding unsecured debts such as credit card debt and medical bills. Bankruptcy also stops collection actions such as wage garnishment, which is just one of the many benefits offered by this form of debt relief.
