Debt Prioritization and Collection Defense Resources

March 27, 2013

A recording of the training can be found here.

On March 27th, CSAJ hosted the webinar, “Who do I pay first? Debt prioritization and collection defense for survivors of intimate partner violence.”

The training focused on providing debt-related advocacy to IPV survivors while incorporating client values, safety considerations, and debt prioritization education. Faculty covered the basics of debt prioritization and collection defense, strategies for prioritizing IPV survivors’ debts, and contextual information to seek and keep in mind when representing a survivor facing debt collection issues.

Faculty for this session was Fred Corbit, Senior Attorney at the King County Office of the Northwest Justice Project in Seattle, Washington.

Fred also made available his presentation slides and a sample letter that can be sent to collection agents, which both can be found in our library.
