Avoid The Stress Of Persistent Creditor Abuses

If you are facing mounting debt and are afraid that you have nowhere to turn, do not worry! Filing for bankruptcy often seems frightening and difficult, but the odds are that you will find it a better alternative than allowing fear to paralyze you into inaction. A Chicago bankruptcy attorney with your best interests at heart can fight on your behalf to eliminate your debt, in and out of the courtroom. If you need a breath of fresh air, please do the right thing and retain the services of a bankruptcy attorney today.

One of the more pressing concerns facing many of our clients is creditor harassment. We understand all too well the stress and trauma associated with rising debt. Few things are as disempowering as the burden of debt that feels like it is growing out of your control. Add harassment by creditors seeking repayment on top of this already heavy weight, and it is enough to drive a person to desperation. With the help of a bankruptcy lawyer, however, you can put a stop to this vile practice and end your stress for good.

What Is Creditor Abuse?

In the state of Illinois, creditors are allowed to pursue payment from their debtors within certain reasonable limits. When a group, agency, or individual steps beyond these limits, it amounts to harassment and becomes the concern of an attorney to deal with. A few commonly broken limits that are placed upon creditors include:

calling you at unreasonable hours of the day

- contacting your employer

- threatening or intimidating you

- lying about your legal options

- continuing to contact you after a stay has been issued

If you believe that any of the above limits have been violated, it is important that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible.

Bankruptcy Representation On Your Side

When you file for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you receive an automatic stay from the court preventing your creditors and collection agencies from pursuing you. To learn more about this process, call a Chicago bankruptcy lawyer at the Law Office of Joseph P. Doyle right away.
