Know your rights. With the help of UpRight Law’s online debt consultations, you can finally learn more about the credit card debt relief assistance you’ve been waiting for. Don’t feel suffocated by your credit card debt. Start a new life today.

How to Stop Creditor Harassment in California

With the Federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and the California Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (sometimes referred to as the Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act or RFDCPA), creditor harassment is illegal. While the FDCPA only applies to agencies who collect debt on someone else’s behalf, the RFDCPA regulates both collection agencies as well as anyone who collects consumer debts in business, original creditors, and companies who create tools for debt collection. As a California resident, it is illegal for any of these parties to threaten you, call you frequently, misrepresent themselves, and perform any other abusive, unfair practices. You don’t have to live with creditor harassment. With UpRight Law’s help, you can stand up to abusive creditors.

How to Stop Wage Garnishment in California

If you’re a California resident, consumer creditors cannot just garnish your wages if you have unpaid credit card payments or past-due medical bills. Creditors need to first acquire a court judgment before garnishing your wages. However, there are a few exceptions to this. You can be subject to wage garnishment if you have unpaid income taxes, defaulted student loans, or court-ordered child support. Want to know more about how to stop wage garnishment if any of these situations apply to you? Connect with an UpRight Law attorney and find out how to maintain control of your income.
