Michigan Statute of Limitations on Credit Card Debt
Under Michigan laws, the statute of limitations on your cards is 6 years. This means that if a creditor does not file a lawsuit to collect your unpaid debts within 6 years from the date you made your last payment or defaulted on the account, it's too late to sue you.
The Local Laws on Credit Card Debt Collection
While you might think you can just "wait it out" until the Michigan statute of limitations expires, there are plenty of legal loopholes your creditors can use to keep your debts active. A much better solution is to file for bankruptcy.
Filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Michigan enables you to eliminate the balances on your credit cards entirely and get a new start. While the law permits some of your assets to be liquidated to pay back creditors, this rarely happens.
How To Protect Yourself From Collectors?
If you're fielding constant phone calls from debt collectors trying to harass you, filing for bankruptcy will also provide protection from their intimidation tactics. The moment your lawyer files your bankruptcy petition, the court will issue an automatic stay ordering your creditors to leave you alone. They won't even be allowed to call you!
If your creditors decide to ignore the automatic stay and continue to bother you, DebtStoppers will take them to court at our own cost to make them stop. We are committed to ensuring our clients secure the relief they need, both from debt and from creditors.
