Being in debt is no fun, and you certainly didn't get in over your head on purpose. But debt collectors treat you that way. Contact a Maine creditor harassment attorney. They add insult to injury when they:
- Call repeatedly
- Make false statements
- Threaten lawsuits
- Contact your neighbors
- Call you at work
Stopping Collection Calls
You are probably doing your best to pay your debts. But don't go to extremes such as liquidating retirement funds or cashing insurance policies. You can stop creditor harassment immediately by declaring bankruptcy. Contact lawyer Jeffrey P. White to see if bankruptcy is the best option for you. The bankruptcy laws exist to protect you if you cannot pay your debts.
The day you file, it becomes illegal for a creditor to contact you, garnish wages, continue litigation against you, or take money from you. If they do, we can sue them for violating the "automatic stay."
Unfair Debt Collection
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act governs what your creditors can and cannot do. For example, you must be treated with fairness, dignity and honesty. I can explain the law to you and stop creditor harassment. The sooner you call the sooner I can stop it. I may be able to stop garnishments of your wages, remove holds on your bank accounts, and prevent sheriff's sales of your assets also.
