Statute of Limitations Determined by Industry

debt collector Michigan
The UCC isn’t the only legal code that includes a statute of limitations; time limits can vary by industry. For example, federal law requires that claims for charges or refunds of overcharges in the freight industry must be brought within 18 months of the date the claim accrues (normally the date of shipment). Be sure you understand the laws that apply to your industry, even if you need to talk to an attorney.

All claims arising from business agreements have an expiration period. Under the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), a claim for breach of contract for the sale of goods, the statute of limitations is four years. For commercial sales, the UCC permits parties to reduce the period of limitations to not less than one year, but they may not increase it.

Is Your Debt Collection Lawsuit Being Contested?

debt collection Michigan

Waiting for your defendant to answer your lawsuit?

If the defendant files an answer to your lawsuit, the court clerk places the case on the court’s trial docket. You receive a copy of the answer either from the civil clerk or directly from the defendant.

Even if the defendant starts out by contesting the case and denying your claim for payment, he or she can pay you off and obtain a dismissal or propose a partial settlement or repayment agreement at any point along the way. To facilitate a settlement, some courts can provide a standard order for installment payments that you may complete and file to settle your case.

If you have good collection policies, they should include time frames in which to take certain actions, including these:

  1. Following up with demand letters requiring payment when an account balance becomes delinquent.
  2. Following up with collection phone calls when demand letters don’t produce payment.

Don’t Over-Garnish Your Defendant!

debt collection Michigan


You don’t want to over-garnish a defendant, and you can get into trouble if you collect more than you’re owed. So if the combined garnishments have the effect of over collecting the account, file a garnishment release form with the court and provide a copy to each garnishee.

It’s also possible to accidentally attach funds that don’t really belong to your debtor or only partially belong to her (such as money in a joint bank account). As a result, you may be required to release part or all the funds to their actual owner.
