Q. I once had Sprint serviced back in 2008, I left that phone company to go to another and I still owed a balance
A: The 7-year limit on reporting delinquent debt begins on the date that the account becomes delinquent and is never current again. So, the answer to your question is probably "neither," but would be that point in time slightly later than your last payment when you failed to make a payment when due and then never made another one . Changes made by the creditor, transfer to a debt collector or debt buyer, etc. does not re-set the time limit. However, there are certain actions you can take that can start the reporting period over, such as entering into a payment agreement or making a payment of even $1. *David Levin is the Partner in charge of UpRight Law's consumer rights litigation department.

Q. I am getting calls from a debt collector repeatedly, I got one call before getting their letter since then, they are
A: It's not clear from your question whether you have disputed the debt (which would preclude further collection action until the debt had been validated), but you are correct that the FDCPA prohibits harassment through repeated telephone calls. If these calls are coming to your cell phone, there may be TCPA violations as well. You should talk with a local consumer protection attorney to determine whether you may be entitled to damages. *David Levin is the Partner in charge of UpRight Law's consumer rights litigation department.

Q. How can I get relief or exempt from the garnishment of my wages?
A: The amount that can be withheld from your paycheck to satisfy a judgment is set by state and federal law. Although there are some exceptions, in Wisconsin that limit is typically 20% of your disposable income. You may want to talk with a bankruptcy attorney about whether Chapter 7 might be a good solution for you. Depending on the amount of the debt, your other debts and your income, you may find that bankruptcy provides the relief that you need--the automatic stay that takes place in most bankruptcy cases stops most garnishments immediately, and in some cases recent withdrawals can even be recovered. *David Levin is the Partner in charge of UpRight Law's consumer rights litigation department.
