Warrants in Debt (if you’ve been sued)
Marshall Slayton describes how filing bankruptcy can help when a person has been sued (received a Warrant in Debt)
- Have you been served by a Warrant in Debt?
- A Warrant in Debt is an attempt by a creditor to collect a debt by getting a legal judgment against you.
- Once a creditor gets a judgment against you, they can attempt to collect money from you by garnishing your wages, putting a lien on your house, or sending the sheriff to your house to try to collect the debt.
- Bankruptcy can stop any of these collection efforts against you BEFORE your creditor even gets a judgment against you.
- If you've been served with a Warrant in Debt, the key is to come into our office as quickly as possible so we can stop the creditor from getting to your assets.
