The DC Consumer Rights Coalition is a group of consumer rights advocates who wish to serve D.C.’s consumers and the D.C.consumer advocate community. Our first effort is to offer a form and information for consumers who are trying to cope with debt collection. The form relates to consumers who are being sued in a debt collection lawsuit in a D.C. court. The information is about special protections for people who receive government benefits and are being contacted by a debt collector.
The posted materials are intended to provide information not otherwise easily available to consumers and their attorneys who need to defend against creditor litigation in the D.C. courts. Let us know if know if you have suggestions or wish to offer help.
The materials on the following pages are:
o Current developments
o Being contacted by a debt collector- -know your rights - information about special protections for people who receive government benefits and are being contacted by a debt collector.
o Filing an Answer in D.C. Superior Court in a Suit to Collect Credit Card Debt — a form answer in downloadable PDF format is provided.
o Additional Useful Consumer Information.
Disclaimer: The information we provide is just that — it is not legal advice or legal representation, and cannot substitute for advice or representation from a lawyer in response to a consumer’s particular situation. This site is not intended to create an attorney-client relationship between you and DC Consumer Rights Coalition and you should not act or rely on any information in this site without seeking the advice of an attorney.
