Creditor Harassment Protection
Under the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA), a federal law enacted to protect consumers, creditors are prohibited from unlawful debt collection practices. This includes harassing people like you about paying their debt. Unless you file for bankruptcy, creditors are not required to stop taking reasonable methods to collect debt. What is reasonable is subjective and a matter of disagreement between creditors and the people who owe the debt.
Filing for Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy will automatically prohibit creditors from taking any further debt collecting action. In order for creditors to resume debt collecting actions, they must now obtain permission from the bankruptcy court. This only happens in specific and limited situations: for example, if a creditor has an interest in a piece of property and you agree to surrender the property to the creditor. In that case, the court will usually allow the creditor to proceed against the property. The court can allow creditors to proceed against secured property if the loan is in default.
Clients who decide to file for bankruptcy and end creditor harassment are advised to inform unsecured creditors that they have obtained an attorney and to not make any additional payments or to discuss accounts with them after we have been retained to represent them.
