San Antonio, TX asked in Bankruptcy, Banking and Collections for Texas

Q: I enrolled in a debt relief program and now I am getting sued by one of the cards that I enrolled in this program. Help!

I enrolled in a debt relief program and advised me to stop paying the credit card that I transferred to this program. I have not missed a payment since I enrolled and I am in good standing. Now, one of the cards is suing me for not paying and the debt relief program said that they can not give legal advise. What can I do?

A: A debt relief program does not mean the creditor has to stop collection activity on you. I suggest you speak to a debtor's attorney regarding your options as soon as possible.
