5 Ways to Avoid Going to Jail Over Your Debt

Avoid going to jail Collection agencies are using extreme methods when going after debtors. They are now going through the court system to collect which gives you two options: show up and pay up or go to jail. First, the collection agency files a lawsuit against the debtor. If the debtor doesn't appear at the hearing they schedule a second hearing to review the debtor's assets. If the debtor fails to appear at this hearing, the judge can put a warrant out for the debtors arrest. Not only will the debtor have to pay what is owed, but also additional court fines and bail money. We came across this blog post that lists 5 ways to avoid this scenario from happening to you. Click here to read the full story. 

Are collection agencies harassing you? We can help! Contact us online or call The Law Offices of Jacoby & Jacoby at 631-289-4600 to schedule a FREE consultation to discuss your individual situation and all of your options.
