Debt collection and the automatic stay, P.2

In our last post, we looked briefly at some of the changes made by a recent bill signed into law by Governor Scott Walker. Those changes, as we noted, make it easier for creditors, including debt buyers, to validate debts in court and remove deterrents to pursuing ill-founded collection actions.

Debt collection and the automatic stay, P.1

The Wisconsin Consumer Act is an important state law which was passed to provide protections for consumers in credit transactions and debt collection. Among other things, the law limits interest and non-interest charges in credit transactions; establishes the right to cancel certain types of contracts; requires judicial intervention for certain types of repossession; and requires disclosures of specific information in credit contracts and advertising

Holidays and credit card debt often go hand-in-hand

Now that we are well into the holiday season, people all across Wisconsin are scrambling to get many things done. There are events to attend, gifts to buy and trips to take. While the logistical complications of all these tasks can be hard enough, it is the financial obligations that come along with them that can put people over the edge.

Do you know about this little-known Wisconsin statute that helps with debt relief?

Maybe you have significant debt, but you're not sure of whether you should file for bankruptcy. After all, filing for bankruptcy is a decision no one should take lightly.

Is credit card debt a problem?

Credit card debt is one of the more dangerous types of debt. Unlike a mortgage, where you know you are taking out a loan with a long, long repayment period, often 30 years, when you take out a credit card, it may cost you nothing. And if you don't use it, it still costs you nothing.

The intersection of bankruptcy and divorce

For the average American, visits to a lawyer's office may be rare. Car accidents, divorces and bankruptcies are likely to be among the most common reason they need to speak with an attorney. For some, there may be times when more than one of these needs coincide.
