Debt Collection

Any business that extends credit to customers or business partners must also master the art of debt collection. FindLaw's "Debt Collection" section includes articles on creditors' rights and collection options, a comparison of different debt collection methods, an overview of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, how to collect debts owed by a bankrupt customer, and more. Also included are a collection of accounts checklist; sample debt collection and billing dispute letters; and a primer on how to take delinquent customers to small claims court.
