Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is debt validation and how does it come into play in lawsuit resolution?
A: Debt validation is the process by which the FDCPA requires a third party collector (someone who is either assigned your debt to collect by a creditor, or someone who acquires a debt from the original creditor) to validate the debt and the collector’s chain of title and right to collect on the debt. If the creditor does not properly follow the validation process, it may not be able to collect on the debt, or it may be liable for penalties that help in resolving or eliminating the debt.
Q: What other ways might a creditor violate your rights that could help in resolving your debt or in money to you?
A: There are limitations on how a creditor may contact you, including how often they may contact you, and what they are allowed to say in these communications. If a creditor violates these limitations, the creditor may be responsible to you for damages, which could help reduce or eliminate your debt or result in monetary damages being paid to you.
