Consumer Recovery Network: Getting Sued by Debt Collectors Can Be to Your Advantage


Michael Bovee says, “Are there advantages to getting sued? Maybe. Nobody tries to get sued, but if it does happen, it’s not the end of the world. There are options, and sometimes they’re better than you think BECAUSE you got sued.”

Michael Bovee says, “Getting served can cause a lot of pressure” but he says that’s the time to take a deep breath and understand that you have options to deal with being sued. Michael Bovee says the formal process of court “buys you time and gives you the ability to negotiate more flexibly.”

Make sure you outline your strategies. You might need time in your favor to accumulate money to pay off your debt.

Being in debt can involve a highly emotional response with ups and downs, ranging from fear of total failure to feelings of resolution. The one constant is that you need information about your situation.

Consulting the right debt relief attorney or consumer debt network can be helpful.
