Credit Card Collections in the State of Michigan

Are you having a hard time collecting on credit cards?

Are your debtors hard to track down?

Are you wondering how long you have to claim the money that is rightfully owed to you? Credit card collection cases are considered a breach of contract. You’re supposed to pay the amount charged at a specified date. If a client fails to pay what they owe, the Michigan Legislature revised judicature act of 1961 Sec. 5807 states that:

debt collection Michigan
“No person may bring or maintain any action to recover damages or sums due for breach of contract, or to enforce the specific performance of any contract unless, after the claim first accrued to himself or to someone through whom he claims, he commences the action within the periods of time prescribed by this section.

The period of limitations is 6 years for all other actions to recover damages or sums due for breach of contract.”

If you have multiple accounts that are in breach of contract status, you should speak with an experienced attorney right away!

In addition to criminal fines and penalties, the check writer may be forced to cover civil damages. Since the Michigan law was last changed, the state now allows the victim to sue for damages. The victim must first request a payment from the offender by a set due date. If the offender neglects to pay reparations, the victim can sue for the entire amount of damages and the original bad check. Damages can include as much as double the amount of the original check.

For criminal penalties, a debtor may have to pay up to $250 in fines and serve six months in jail or pay a $500 fine and serve one year in jail depending on the severity of the offense.

If it turns out you need help collecting from your debtors, know that help isn’t far away! At Muller Law Firm we can help you strategize, and get results!
