Frequently asked Questions
The first step in the collection process is to send a letter of demand. This is a formal notice that requests payment within a certain time frame. This letter will outline the amount owed, as well as any interest and late fees that may be applicable. It will also give the debtor a deadline for payment. If payment is not received by the deadline, you may then take further legal action.
If the debtor does not respond or pay within that timeframe, we can then take legal action.
Filing a lawsuit is often the only way to get their attention and collect the debts owed. This is a process where we take the debtor to court to try and get a judgment against them. Once the lawsuit is filed, the court will set a date for a hearing
Serving the debtor with the lawsuit gives them notice that they are being sued and gives them 20 days to respond. If they don’t respond within that time frame, then we can request a default judgment from the court.
If the debtor does not respond to the lawsuit within the allotted time, a default judgment will be entered in favor of the creditor. The court will then order the debtor to pay the full amount of the debt, plus interest and any other costs associated with the lawsuit.
After we win a judgment in court, there are a few different ways to collect the money that is owed to you. One way is wage garnishment, which is when the court orders the debtor’s employer to withhold a certain amount of money from their paycheck and send it to you. Another way is asset seizure, which is when the court orders the sheriff to seize any assets that the debtor has, such as cars or houses, and sell them in order to pay off the debt.
