Every single day, businesses and individuals must contend with the "blow" of defaulted checks, how does one deal with defaulted checks?
Due to the rise in the cost of living, and high ongoing expenses, the trend of defaulted checks is on the rise.
There are several reasons for a check to default, among them: technical reason, there's not enough money in the bank account to cover the check, the check is associated with a restricted account, an initiated cancellation of the check, and more. In cases when 10 checks are defaulted during a period of one year, the bank account would be restricted for one year.
You can find yourself in one of two situations: you paid with a check that bounced, or you were paid with a check that bounced.
In both situations, and without delay, it is highly recommended to turn to a bankruptcy attorney.
A bankruptcy attorney knows how to act in order to minimize damages.
If you received a check and it bounced, you have several options at your disposal, such as trying to collect the money yourself (by a phone call or by mail), and also by opening a case with a collection agency. In addition, our office will impose seizures in order to prevent asset smuggling.
One of the problems that business owners encounter is the location of the debtor.
At times, it is difficult to trace an updated address, and if the circumstances require, we coordinate with a private investigator (approved by the Department of Justice).
We have at our disposal the legal tools that allow us to exert pressure on the debtor, such as: a stay of exit (leaving the country) order, and certain seizures and confiscations, all with the purpose of getting the debtor to pay his full debt, or to reach a payment agreement.
In cases where the debtor is not cooperating, we will enact execution of the debtor's assets (after we exercise seizures on them).
If you received checks that bounced, or you paid with checks that bounced, please turn to our office as soon as possible for immediate handling and minimizing the damages.
