Steps of the Debt Collection Process

These are general steps of the debt collection process. Each claim is unique and may not follow this pattern. 

The client sends us information on the debt.

The client sends us information on the debt, including supporting documentation. We evaluate the claim and then enter the data into our system. 

We send a demand letter to the debtor.

We send a demand letter to the debtor via fax, mail, or email and an acknowledgement letter to the client. 

We call the debtor to arrange payment.

We get in touch with the debtor via telephone in an attempt to obtain payment and resolve any disputes. If the debtor commits to payment, we work to ensure that the payment materializes. 

We file a complaint with the court.

If the debtor refuses to pay, we file a complaint with the court and serve a copy of the complaint along with a summons. The complaint will explain why the debtor is being sued and what the client wants. 

The debtor prepares a formal written response to the lawsuit & File for a Writ of Attachment. 

The debtor will be required to file a written response to the lawsuit by a specific deadline. After the response is filed, the discovery process begins and a trial date is set. If a response isn’t filed, we file for default judgment. 

If a judgment is awarded in the client’s favor, we file for a Writ of Attachment and satisfy the judgment.
