Washington  Debt Relief
Debt settlement, also known as debt negotiation and debt reduction, is the process by which we negotiate and settle a debt for a reduced amount on behalf of a client. When successful, it is possible that Franklin Debt Relief can settle their debts for less than what is owed, all with the convenience of one low program payment. The savings from our debt settlement program can potentially be tremendous versus making your minimum payments, and it is in some cases the cheapest and fastest debt relief, debt consolidation or debt help option available to Virginia consumers.

If you're overwhelmed with credit cards, medical bills, balances from a repossession, or accounts in collections, call for a free consultation: (877) 274-1260.
 
Pertinent Washington  Debt Relief and Debt Help Laws
(This is intended to be a helpful and informational debt resource for Washington consumers and does not constitute legal advice. For legal advice about your situation, contact a licensed professional in Washington.)

Debt Collection

Washington follows the set of federal laws dealing with collection agencies (and law firms that collect debts) that are collectively known as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). For more information on the FDCPA follow this link: debt collection.

-Debt collector must:
- include name and address of agency and name of the creditor in all written communications.
-include an itemization showing the amount owed on the original debt, interest charges, and any other fees (late fees, attorney's fees, etc.) in the initial written communication
-notify the credit bureaus that a debt has been satisfied within 45 days of the debt's satisfaction
-Debt collector cannot:
-threaten debtor with harm to their credit rating
-communicate with the debtor more than 3 times in one week or at work more than once per week
-make more than one contact with a debtor concerning a debt that arose from identity theft or any other fraudulent activity out of the debtor's control (stolen checkbook, lost ATM card, etc.)

Washington Debt Law

Maximum Interest Rate a Collection Agency Can Charge in Washington: 12%

Washington Wage Protection: 75% of disposable weekly earnings (after tax income) or 40 times federal hourly minimum wage, whichever is greater

Statute of Limitations

A statute of limitations is a law that sets forth the maximum period of time, after certain events, that legal proceedings based on those events may be initiated. For debt, the statutes of limitation apply to the maximum period of time after a consumer has become delinquent on their payments. The key point to remember is that you are considered delinquent not from the date of your last payment, but rather the day after you have gone past due. In other words, if you made your last payment on 3/3/03 and your next payment was due the same day of the next month, the statute of limitations on the debt would not start running until 4/4/04. The statutes of limitations vary from state to state and depend on the type of debt and where the original transaction took place (i.e. if you took the loan out in Florida but currently live in Washington, the applicable statutes of limitations would be Florida's.)
