What are the Debt Collection Laws in Massachusetts?
As a debtor, you may face legal action on the part of a debt collection company in their efforts to recover the debt they claim you owe. Under State and Federal law, debtors are granted certain rights that protect them from unfair debt collection practices. A violation of any of these laws may be grounds to successfully challenge a debt collection lawsuit. For example, the debt collection agency may not be licensed in Massachusetts or may not be able to appropriately validate your debt. Or, the statute of limitations may have expired (the legal time limit within which a debt can be enforced by way of the legal system.) In these and similar situations, a debt collection defense lawyer may be able to use this to your benefit in court to successfully counter the collector's case against you.
