Frequently Asked Questions About Our Debt Relief Services
What are some examples of situations where federal bankruptcy may not be the right choice?
Bankruptcy should always be considered a last resort since it can damage your credit for many years. If you are tired of fielding constant creditor and debt collector harassment over minor debts, using the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act may be a better choice than bankruptcy.
If you know you will have significant expenses soon, you may want to wait to file for bankruptcy. Since there are strict limits on which debts you can claim under bankruptcy, it makes sense to wait until you have incurred them.
What practices are illegal under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act?
Debt collectors may not pretend to work for the government or claim they can have you arrested. They cannot publicly shame you. They must not try to collect a debt that is not yours. They are not allowed to abuse or harass you but can only contact you according to strict guidelines.
If you need help with debt collectors, call us to find out whether suing them under the FDCPA is viable.
How common is incorrect medical billing?
According to industry experts, medical billing mistakes are widespread. Errors range from assigning the debt to the wrong patient to charging for services that hospitals never provided. If you suspect that your medical bills are inaccurate, contact Debt Legal Defense for help.
