We understand the challenges involved and are dedicated to ensuring that your rights are protected and that you have the safe space you need to repair your finances without the daily harassment of unscrupulous creditors.
The Fair Debt Collections Practices Act
Before things get out of hand and the creditors come after you, it’s always wise to be proactive. If you know you’re not going to be able to pay a bill on time, call the creditor and explain why. Tell them when you think you’ll be able to pay and see if they’re willing to negotiate a repayment plan. But if your creditor won’t cooperate, there are laws to protect you from harassment. The Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA) stipulates that if you write a letter to the harassing creditor requesting that they stop contacting you, they are legally bound to do so. If they do not, a letter from a lawyer like Attorney Will Green of Milwaukee, Wisconsin will do the trick and give you more time to figure out how you’ll settle the debt. If you still can’t pay, bankruptcy may be an option of last resort. The Will Green Law Office can help you explore your options.
