Consumer Financial Services: Debt Collection Practices and Bankruptcy Subcommittee

ABA Section of Business Law


Consumer Financial Services:
Debt Collection Practices and Bankruptcy Subcommittee


Mission Statement

The subcommittee focuses on two different areas: consumer debt collection practices and the aspects of bankruptcy which affect consumer financial services. With respect to debt collection, the subcommittee monitors developments under the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and state laws regulating the collection of debts. Among other things, the subcommittee is following the potential liability of creditors for the activities of their debt collectors, the requirement that the "actual debt" be included in communications, and the evolving standards for determining whether communications are "misleading." The subcommittee also reports on several developing consumer bankruptcy areas, including the proposed amendments to the bankruptcy code, the interaction between reaffirmation, repossession and the discharge injunction, and the use of class actions in bankruptcy courts.
