When an individual obtains a loan, takes out a mortgage on a house, acquires
a credit card or purchases any item with deferred payments, he or she
has a legal responsibility to the creditor to fulfill the agreed-upon
terms of that financial obligation. Creditors are not known for their
leniency and they will not waste time in pursuing payment on past due
debt. In certain cases they may sell the unpaid debt to debt buyers or
debt collectors who will then be extremely persistent in their quest to
recover payment. In other instances, a debtor may find him- or herself
being sued by a creditor.
If you have become aware that a lawsuit has been filed against you by one
of your creditors, it is important you take that action very seriously.
Creditors mean business. They will pursue payment by whatever legal means
necessary. Any failure on your part to act quickly in your own defense,
could put you at risk and leave you susceptible to court orders from which
you may not have any recourse.
The first step you need to take after finding out that one of your creditors
has filed a lawsuit against you is to obtain your own legal representation.
