Received a lawsuit from MIDLAND CREDIT MANAGEMENT LLC? Here’s what to do.


Did you receive a letter threatening to sue from MIDLAND CREDIT MANAGEMENT LLC (MCM)? Or worse -did you get served with a lawsuit already? You have a limited amount of time to take action. The Law Office of Alberto H. Hernandez can help you resolve this debt!

MIDLAND CREDIT MANAGEMENT LLC is a debt collector who purchases unpaid debt from other companies. If you receive a letter from MIDLAND CREDIT MANAGEMENT LLC, it is because they purchased a debt that you had with another creditor (a credit card, a cell phone company, etc.,) and they are now attempting to collect on that debt.


Your original debt is usually sold without any notice to you to these third-party debt collectors like MIDLAND CREDIT MANAGEMENT LLC after you have spent 6 months (180 days) without paying.  Once MIDLAND CREDIT MANAGEMENT LLC has purchased your debt, you no longer owe your original creditor the money and now have a debt with the third-party debt collector. MIDLAND CREDIT MANAGEMENT can perform all of the actions as your original creditor and report negative information on your credit report, send collection letters, make collection phone calls, etc.

MIDLAND CREDIT MANAGEMENT LLC has the right to sue you for the full balance (plus additional interest) owed to your original creditor. Once a lawsuit has been filed against you by MIDLAND CREDIT MANAGEMENT LLC, there is a limited window of opportunity to resolve the debt. If a judgment is entered against you by MIDLAND CREDIT MANAGEMENT LLC, that judgment is valid for 20 years and they can garnish your wages or bank account at any time to collect on the debt. In the meantime, the judgment continues to collect interest every year, so your debt continues to increase if it is not paid.


So how can you resolve this debt with MIDLAND CREDIT MANAGEMENT LLC?

The Law Office of Alberto H. Hernandez P.A. can help you explore the options you have available to you! If you can confirm you owe the debt with MIDLAND CREDIT MANAGEMENT LLC,  a payment plan or settlement may be a good option for you. If you have multiple debts, it may be a good idea to explore filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

It is important to keep in mind that if MIDLAND CREDIT MANAGEMENT LLC has initiated a lawsuit against you, we need to act quickly to avoid any additional action by their attorneys or the court, including having a judgment filed against you.
