How to Create an Effective Billing Strategy

debt collection MichiganWhen considering what to include on an invoice, put yourself in your customer’s position. Ask yourself what questions you’d want answered before you pay the bill. For example, wouldn’t you want to know what the bill is for, what dates are covered, who provided the goods or services described on the invoice, and the total amount due? Assuming you’re a good bill payer, after your basic questions have been answered, you probably submit your payment.

How to Handle Your Debtors Who Moved Away

Trying to collect a judgment on a debtor who moved away?

debt collectors MichiganAre you frustrated with debtors dodging your calls?

Are you having a hard time tracking down your debtors?

When you’re trying to collect a judgment from someone who has moved away, remember:

  1. States are obligated to recognize judgments obtained in other states under the Full Faith and Credit provisions of the U.S. Constitution. Most states have foreign judgment recognition laws to facilitate enforcement of international judgments.
  2. When the amount owed justifies the additional effort and expense, depending on where your debtor is located, you may be able to enforce your judgment in a foreign country.
  3. You may be able to recover additional fees and court costs associated with chasing your debtor to the new location to collect your judgment. You should discuss this with your debt collector up front so you don’t end up with a huge bill for costs that are deducted from the money you recover.
  4. Expect that you’ll need to hire a debt collector in the new state to enter the judgment with that state’s courts and initiate collection proceedings there.

My Debtor Moved. Now What?

Are you wondering how you can still collect on your judgment?
debt collectors Michigan
Debtors are moving targets – hard to keep track of, hard to collect from. So, how do you find them to continue to demand payment?

When a debtor moves, use your best skip-tracing efforts to locate them. Make demands on the debtor in the new location and try to persuade them to pay. Verifying an address, phone number, and a new bank account or place of employment furthers the cause. 

If you have questions about how to pursue your claims after your debtor leaves, contact our debt collectors to help you create a strategy going forward. Muller, Muller, Richmond, Harms & Myers, P.C. can help you!

How to Keep Your Debtor on a Payment Schedule

Are you having a hard time having your debtor stick to a payment schedule?

How can you ensure the payments keep coming in?

Do you need advice from professional debt collectors?
debt collection michigan

Before you threaten litigation, make sure you’ve laid a solid foundation. Although you can sue over any debt that’s owed to you, good collection practices improve your chances of winning and of collecting the entire amount you claim is due. 

  • Formally demand payment. When the account becomes delinquent, issue a demand letter within the first 30 days. Follow up with your debtor in writing and orally reminding the debtor to pay.
  • Work to resolve disputes. While following up on the unpaid debt, identify any disputes from your debtor. Although not all disputes can be resolved, when appropriate disputes should be resolved or settled.
  • When appropriate, enter into a written repayment plan, permitting the debtor to pay off the agreed balance in installments.
  • Keep good notes and records of your communication with the debtor, knowing that your collection may end up in court.
