Creditors will frequently file a lawsuit to obtain a judgment that will allow them to collect unpaid debts. With a judgment from the court, the creditor can record a lien against a debtor's home, seek wage garnishments, and even request bank levies to freeze checking and savings accounts. If a creditor files a lawsuit against you, then filing for bankruptcy can help you avoid the consequences of a collection judgment.
Citation to Discover
A Citation to Discover Assets is a collection tool that requires a debtor to appear in court and answer questions about their property and income. After the questioning, a creditor can attempt to obtain access to the debtor’s property and income to repay the debt.
It is a very powerful tool for creditors because it creates a lien on all of the debtor’s non-exempt personal property for at least six months and restricts them from transferring or disposing of their nonexempt property.
You may be able to avoid the consequences of a citation lien if you file for bankruptcy protection. It is always better to file for bankruptcy before a citation is filed. Therefore, it is important to consult with an experienced bankruptcy attorney as soon as you are served with notice of a lawsuit.
Hipple Law P.C. has more than two decades of experience helping clients who are facing eviction because they owe unpaid rent or homeowners association dues. If you are worried about being evicted or a former landlord is threatening to sue you, then filing for bankruptcy protection may help stop an eviction and give time to repay the debt. In some cases, bankruptcy might even be able to eliminate a prior unpaid rent debt.
