No, the original creditor has sold the debt and is no longer involved in the collection process.

Both and anyone else you can think about in the middle, because it removes any claims down the road for not providing proper notice.

NO. Social Security income is protected from creditor claims.

If it's a small-claims case, answer that the debt was discharged in bankruptcy and attach a copy of the discharge order. Otherwise, contact an attorney to either provide a similar answer *or* take the creditor to Federal court for violating the discharge.

If you signed a Security Agreement, then your creditor has a secured claim on the collateral specified in the agreement.

User Avatar

Following your supposition, if he had a lien then he wasn't an unsecured creditor, and if only unsecured were discharged, he wasn't.

Varies state to state. Contact your local small claims court for your state's small claims max.

Of course they can! Any creditor can place a claim against the estate. That is how they get paid the money the are owed.

Yes. Collections alone cannot order you to pay; you must pay voluntarily. With a small claims judgment, the creditor can attach the judgment to your assets.

Yes, the assets of the estate can be used to create income. The income can then be used to resolve debts.

Claims in a bankruptcy are either accepted, disputed or not liquidated. "No liquidated" means there is no determinable amount owed at the time of filing. The court, trustee, creditor or debtor may force a hearing to determine if the debt is owed or what amount is owed. Claims are not opinions. The court does not deal with pure opinions, since they have no monetary value. The court deals with claims. Based on facts.

AnswerThey can contact your place of employment if they have not been informed that they should not do so, but a creditor/collector cannot use threats or intimidating tactics regardless of their method of contact. A debtor has the legal right to send a creditor or collector a "cease and desist" letter requesting them to stop all contact with them and their family. The letter should be specific in citing and should include place of business, home, cell phone, relative contact and so forth.Once the creditor receives the letter they may only contact the debtor to inform the debtor that a major change of status has been made on the account, such as the sale of the account to a third party, a right to cure notice, notification a lawsuit has been filed.The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act or FDCPA was propounded by the Congress to safeguard the interests of the consumers as they are often harassed by collection agencies.The FDCPA is a Federal Law meant for the protection of consumers. It encompasses a set of rules governing the activities of collection agencies. The Law also defines the type of information a debt collector is entitled to collect from the debtors. Not only this, the FDCPA also lays the ground for the legal action that can be taken against the the collection agencies.FDCPA restricts debt collectors from contacting a third party who does not owe money to the creditors. Third party may include employers, neighbors and relatives of the debtor. However, a co-applicant of a debtor can be contacted.FDCPA does not allow a debt collector to- Ruin your credit ratingRefer account to an AttorneyGarnishment or repossessionExtract money by giving false threatsMaking phone calls at odd hours is prohibited. A debt collector can make phone calls between 8.00AM to 9.00 PM. They are not allowed to make phone calls at your workplace, if your office policy does not allow it.The debt collectors are not allowed to inform the employers about the purpose of the call.Steps to take if a debt collector violates FDCPAIf it is found that a debt collector has violated FDCPA (Fair Debt Collection Practices Act) norms, you have every right to legally penalize the debt collector in a state court or a federal court. You can sue a debt collector within one year from the time he violated FDCPA rules. If you win the lawsuit, you can make claims for recovering damages you suffered due to debt collectors. In addition to this, you can also make claims amounting to USD$1,000.00. Attorney fees and court costs can also be recovered from the debt collectors if it is found that they have violated the FDCPA guidelines.Whom to contact in case of FDCPA violation?In majority of the cases, debtors who have been harassed by debt collectors report irregularities to the Attorney General of the respective states. You can also approach the Federal Trade Commission or FTC to register your complaints

The first things to do would be to contact your Allstate agent. You can also call the claims center or go online to the customer care center and use the Claims Self-Service tool.

You must contact the office of the registrar where the individual claims he/she attended.

Secured claims are those debts that have been secured by collateral. Because of this, the creditor can take the collateral and sell it, if the debt isnรข??t paid. Some examples are home mortgages and car loans. With Chapter 13, the loan would have to be paid for these claims if the owner wishes to keep the property.

Without knowing where you are and what type of claims ("upaid claims" can refer to both wages and insurance), I can't give specific info. What you should do is contact your state bar and ask for recommendations in your area.

Florida Small Claims Form 7.343 is Fact Information Sheet. It has two versions: (a) For Individuals, (b) For Corporate Entities. In a judgment in small claims court, the judgment creditor is the person to whom money is owed. The judgment debtor is the person who owes the money.At the request of the judgment creditor (or the creditor's attorney), the judge will order the debtor to complete Form 7.343 within a specified time.
