Lawsuits to Collect Debt

Lawsuits to Collect Debt

If a debtor defaults on debts, such as credit cards or personal loans, the creditor will often file a lawsuit to collect on the debt.  If a judgement is entered by the court, the creditor will often then file a garnishment action or attempt to freeze the debtors bank accounts.

Regardless of the stage of the litigation, the debtor can stop the lawsuit from proceeding by filing a bankruptcy.  Upon notification of the bankruptcy, the creditor must stop the litigation.
