Attorneys Helping To Stop Debt Lawsuits. Offices In Augusta, Dublin And Statesboro.
If you are behind on payments to any creditor, such as a credit card company, hospital or medical clinic, landlord or even a friend who loaned you some money, that creditor may have the right to take legal action against you to get the money you owe, or the creditor says you owe. If you have been served with a lawsuit by one of your creditors, it is important that you take immediate action to resolve it. If you don’t, it could lead to a number of negative consequences.
At the law firm of Claeys, McElroy-Magruder & Kitchens, our Augusta lawyers can stop any debt lawsuit you may be facing by filing a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy petition on your behalf. Under the law, once you have filed for bankruptcy, all collection activity must stop immediately. This includes lawsuits seeking to recover most, if not all, types of debt.
Do Not Wait To Speak To A Georgia Bankruptcy Attorney
Once you have been served with a lawsuit, you have 30 days to respond to it. If you fail to do so, your creditor can obtain a judgment against you for the amount you owe, or the creditor says you owe. Once the creditor has obtained a judgment, that creditor has the right to initiate wage garnishments, place liens on your property and take other actions to collect the debt.
Now is the time to seek the advice of an experienced bankruptcy attorney. We will conduct a thorough review of your situation and recommend the solution we feel is the best fit for your needs. We will walk you through the entire process and explain how bankruptcy can help with your other debts in addition to relieving the pressure of any lawsuits you may be facing.
