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.

If you need further help keeping your payment plans on track for your debtors, Muller, Muller, Richmond, Harms & Myers can help you!

When the Trial Goes Wrong: Consider an Appeal!

Did your trial result in an unfavorable outcome?

Do you think the judge misinterpreted the facts of your case?
debt collections michigan

Are you considering an appeal?

One of your first thoughts when you consider an appeal is likely to be, “This is going to cost me.” At times, an appeal can be as costly as a trial, and because of the slow progress of cases in most appellate courts, getting a decision on your appeal can take a very long time.

What to Do When Your Trial Goes Wrong

debt collections MichiganAre you unhappy with the outcome of your case?
Considering an appeal?
What should you consider when you file an appeal?
Before you file an appeal, consider asking the trial court to rehear your case or reconsider its decision. Even if you’re hiring a lawyer to handle your appeal, this may be a good first step for your lawyer – to help raise newly discovered evidence or to try to convince the court that its decision was made in error.

You can raise one of two types of error on appeal, including:

  1. Mistakes of fact: The judge or jury misinterpreted the facts of the case, resulting in a ruling against you.
  2. Mistakes of law: The judge made a mistake applying the law to your case.

How to Serve a Lawsuit with Ease

Having trouble serving a lawsuit?

Does your debtor claim they were never sued?

Are you sick and tired of debtors making up excuses?

A good way to cover all your serving bases is to make copies of the summons, complaint, and exhibits for each defendant in the case and then serve each of your defendants in three separate ways.
debt collectors Michigan
  1. Service by regular mail – Send a copy of the paperwork to each defendant by regular first-class mail.
  2. Service by certified mail – Send another copy of the documents to each defendant by certified mail and request a return receipt. Keep the certified mail card when it comes back from the post office; this slip is crucial because it contains the defendant’s signature and proves that he or she received and signed for the certified mail.
  3. Service by process server – For each defendant, you give a copy of all the forms to a process server, along with an extra copy of the summons. The process server will hand deliver a copy of your documents to the defendant and completes a proof of service on the second copy of the summons and files it with the court.
