Stopping Creditor Harassment
New York Creditor Harassment Attorney
- For those facing overwhelming debt and deep financial concerns, creditor harassment can be a daily source of stress and intimidation. Generally creditor contact in the form of repeat letters and calls, but sometimes from their collection agencies or attorneys, can take a more aggressive approach, posing as law enforcement or other excessive measures. The perpetual harassment is often the catalyst that motivates individuals to finally file for bankruptcy relief.
Stop Debt Collection With A Lawyer In New York
When an individual or business files for bankruptcy relief, there immediately goes into effect an automatic stay to stop all creditor harassment instantly. Tax agencies, banks, lenders, creditors and collection agencies are forbidden from contacting the individual or business any more. Bank levies, garnishments, seizures of property, going forward with threatened foreclosures or repossessions (and sometimes evictions) violate this automatic stay and can be punished by the imposition of actual damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees, and, in appropriate circumstances, punitive damages.
