What’s at Risk During Debt Litigation?
Debt litigation is often what happens after it becomes clear that a debtor and creditor cannot reach a settlement out of court. This means the debtor’s proposed repayment plan is unsatisfactory for the creditor, who may be seeking an immediate and full repayment of debt.
If you were unsuccessful in trying to negotiate a settlement with your creditors, a lot may be at risk now. Your creditors can file lawsuits against you to force your repayment of debts by alternative means.
Some of these court-approved methods include:
- Garnishment of your bank accounts and/or paychecks
- Foreclosure on property tied to a debt
- Repossession of vehicles and other big-ticket items with past-due payments
These are just a few of the most common ways creditors take action to collect on outstanding debts – and the fact that they’re common speak to how dire your situation may be should a creditor file suit against you.
