I heard that payday loans are illegal in NJ. I took 600 put and paid four payments of $206 . I also heard that since they are illegal I only have to pay the principal. Is this true,? The rest of my cc and such ate in good standing so I don't want to file for bankruptsy. What can they do to me,,?
Think this all the way through: If the payday loan creditor operates its business anywhere in the state of New Jersey there is a really strong possibility that payday loans are NOT illegal in New Jersey. What can they do if you do not repay? They can sue you.
The difference is a wage garnishment vs a levy. Wage garnishment is up to 10% of weekly pay. A levy is on an asset, including a bank account. It does not matter that it is wages, because unless it is social security, it is not exempt. Hope you see the difference
I do not believe so. While it does protect against default judgment, and it does force creditors to only charge a 6% interest (cap), being that Post Judgment Interest Rates are not that high, I would not think so
You really need to seek an in person consultation where the attorney can see all the paperwork to give you a proper answer, but expect to pay for the attorneys time as that is not part of the normal criminal free in office consultation.

Yes, it certain can, after the creditor gets a Judgment against you. To properly answer your questions and address your concerns, the best way to handle this is with an in person consultation with an experienced bankruptcy attorney.
