Can filing for Bankruptcy help resolve my debt with Direct Recovery Services?
There are two types of bankruptcy, chapter 7 bankruptcy, and chapter 13 bankruptcy. A chapter 7 bankruptcy is also known as straight bankruptcy. it is the best option to consider for people who own little property, have credit card balances, medical bills, and other personal loans, and whose family income doesn’t exceed the state median for the same family size.
The process involves the liquidation of your assets to pay up your debts in order of prioritization. In this case, the court will put a temporary stay on all of your current debts, stopping creditors from collecting payments from you and garnishing your wages. Not all of your possessions will be taken away. Some will be left with you and they are called “Exemptions”. Exemptions include your house/residence, car, and other properties necessary for your work and survival.
In chapter 7 bankruptcy, the court assigns a trustee to take possession of your assets, sell them, and distribute the money derived from the sale of those items to your creditors. The money may not be enough to settle all your debts but the remaining debts that the money is unable to resolve will most likely be discharged.
Here are the requirements to qualify for chapter 7 bankruptcy:
– You must not have filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy in the last 8 years
– Your debt must be more than 50% of your annual income
– Your debt must be so bad that it would take more than 5 years for you to pay it up.
– Your monthly income is below your state’s median family income.
Your debt collection rights

Note that the FDCPA only applies to third party debt collectors like direct recovery services llc. If the person calling you is your original creditor, then the FDCPA does not apply.
- You can dispute debt amounts
You have the right to dispute any debt amount if it’s higher than the amount of money you suspect you owe. This is because Direct recovery or any other debt collector is not allowed to add interest to the original amount of your debt.
- You have the right to getting the absolute truth from DirectRecoveryServices
When a debt collector calls you, they are forbidden from lying to you. Any debt collector who lies has violated the FDCPA. The FDCPA prohibits them from misrepresentation in any form. Either misrepresenting their identity, the debt, or any paper/document.
- You can avoid paying an old debt
If a debt gets so old that it exceeds the statute of limitations, direct recovery services can not legally hold you over it anymore. This means that you can not be sued for it. And once the credit reporting time limit passes, it won’t be reported on your credit report anymore.
- You have the right to privacy as regards your debt
The FDCPA grants you the right to privacy. No third party should be told intimate details about your debt. Debt collectors can call your friends or family to ask them about your address or phone number, but they are not allowed to disclose your debt information to them.
- You have the right to stop debt collection calls
If you are experiencing Direct Recovery Services phone harassment, the FDCPA allows you to stop Direct Recovery Services from calling you. You can tell them to communicate with you only via writing.
