What is wage garnishment and what are my legal defenses?

When a person sinks into debt, the stress of maintaining the lifestyle they have become accustomed to while simultaneously meeting their financial obligations can be overwhelming. Debt collectors can be relentless in making a difficult situation worse and it is easy to feel like you are in a hopeless situation.

You are not controlled by your creditors

It is often said that a modern economy is based on credit. One reason for this belief is the need for individuals and businesses to secure credit to raise enough capital to grow. This growth is done at a much faster pace through borrowing and investment than if the consumer or entrepreneur was required to save up the necessary funds in advance.

Despite economy's recovery, many Americans are buried in debt

Although the economy seems to be improving, many families in Cincinnati are still struggling. Many households are still attempting to recover from a stint of unemployment, and this often means struggling to get on top of bills that have gone into debt collection. For many families, they are in too deep to recover.

Can creditors really do that? The realities of debt collections

Many people in Cincinnati and throughout Ohio live in constant fear of the next ring of their telephone because they worry that on the other end of phone there might be a creditor ready to harass them about why they have not made their payments.

Abusive debt collection impacts military families

Military personnel, veterans, and their families are often the targets of aggressive or unscrupulous debt collectors.  Now that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is keeping statistics, it's possible to quantify a degree to which abusive debt collectors target service members in Ohio and elsewhere around the country.

Aeon Financial accused of abusive debt collection practices

A debt collection firm named Aeon Financial foreclosed upon more than 400 properties in Cuyahoga County, the largest county in Ohio. The company also apparently had purchased a number of liens in other states across the country as well. Yet what is truly unusual about these circumstances is the fact that Aeon information lists no owners or company website. Its operations stem from mail-drop boxes in Chicago and the company apparently is represented by a law firm with a Colorado address.

Automatic stay puts breaks on debt collection

For burdened debtors, abusive debt collection can be a nightmare. Or, if not a nightmare, then at least what wakes them up from a nightmare. Calling in the middle of the night is one of many abuses aggressive debt collectors engage in. Unfortunately, the law governing debt collection is outdated and does not address the many abuses debtors are now facing.
