Exploring Your Options For Debt Collection
Creditors have several remedies when it comes to collecting outstanding accounts. Granted, these are often easier said than done. Working with a reputable law firm that has a record of successful results can go a long way toward advocating for your rights as a creditor and recovering delinquent accounts.
This is precisely what we do at the Portland firm of Slinde Nelson Stanford. As a law firm staffed with business attorneys, we understand the importance of swift and cost-efficient collections enforcement. We are well-versed in the options available to you. We can determine which methods suit your needs, then execute a comprehensive collections strategy in compliance with the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
Common Methods Of Collection For Creditors
Self-help remedies are typically the first step in the collections process. Creditors can take it upon themselves to contact the debtor to request payment. Granted, there are restrictions in place to prevent the harassment of debtors. Before proceeding to court, a creditor may have the option to use replevin or attachment to take back any property to which they hold title.
When these methods do not succeed, it is time to turn to court-based remedies. Winning a judgment against a debtor allows for the use of many other methods, such as wage garnishment, asset seizure and liens.
