Debtor-creditor law governs situations where one party is unable to pay a monetary debt to another. There are three types of creditors. First are those who have a lien have a charge against a particular piece of property. This property (or proceeds from its sale) must be used to satisfy the debt to the lien-creditor before it can be used to satisfy debts to other creditors. A lien may arise through statute, agreement between the parties, or judicial proceedings. See, e.g., Secured Transactions and Mortgages. Secondly, a creditor may have a priority interest. A priority arises through statutory law. If a creditor has a priority his debt must be paid when the debtor becomes insolvent before other debts. For example, Congress has granted priority to debts owed the Federal government. See Federal Tax Lien Act. The final type of creditor is one who has neither a lien against the debtor's property or is the subject of a statutory priority.

  • Choosing a Lawyer
  • Find a lawyer with whom you are comfortable:
    Your interaction with your lawyer will require you to shed a lot of information about yourself and others around you. Choose a lawyer who you are comfortable with, and whom you can trust personally as well as professionally. You must have confidence in your lawyer and work with him/her to bring out the important points in your case. If you are not comfortable talking to your lawyer, you could be withdrawing certain information that might prove crucial to the case. Some lawyers will charge you for an initial meeting, but still do not hesitate to pay this fee for a second or third time to a different lawyer if you are not comfortable with the earlier ones.

  • Understand the lawyers fee structure:
    The legal fee could be divided into a fixed fee (usually for routine legal work), an hourly fee, a retainer fee (so that the lawyer is always available to handle your case) or a contingency fee (where you pay the lawyer a certain percentage of the money you receive as compensation). Speak to the lawyer in detail regarding the fee structure and what services are included in the fee. If there are any additional charges, these should be clarified beforehand.
