Debt Collection

Any business that extends credit to customers or business partners must also master the art of debt collection. This involves complying with various rules and regulations governing debt collection as well as maintaining business relationships. FindLaw's Debt Collection section includes articles on creditors' rights and collection options, a comparison of different debt collection methods, an overview of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and how to collect debts owed by a customer who is bankrupt. In this section you can also find a collection of accounts checklist, sample debt collection and billing dispute letters, and a primer on how to take a delinquent customer to small claims court.
