Stop Creditor Lawsuits
Many people don’t realize that a bankruptcy filing will prevent creditor lawsuits. Pending lawsuits are frozen, and other creditor lawsuits cannot be filed once a bankruptcy has been filed.
In some cases, the statute of limitations has already passed on a debt. In other cases, the credit card company has lost the documents it must provide to prove its case. Sometimes, the creditor fails to show up in court. Sometimes the creditor has hired an out-of-state attorney who cannot even file a complaint against you in Florida.
Do you have an upcoming court date? We can help.
If your bankruptcy has already been filed, and the creditor and their attorney have been listed on the petition, then the court date will be cancelled. If you won’t be able to file your bankruptcy in time, we can appear in court for you or give you advice on how to handle it yourself.
Do not sign a stipulation or agree to a default judgment. Make them prove it.
Obviously, it is difficult to fight a creditor’s allegation that you owe them money. But you do not have to provide evidence to help prove their case against you. Just say you want to fight the allegation. That means, you don’t have to admit that you owe money to them. They have to prove it. If you refuse to give up and surrender, then they have to take you to a trial, submit evidence, and all the rest.
Finally, make sure that you attend your court dates–or have us attend for you.
