Often, they file many of these lawsuits at one time against numerous debtors, counting on an outsize percentage of these defendants to ignore the lawsuit. These defendants may be overwhelmed by the lawsuit or simply believe it doesn't matter since they have no money left to give. When this occurs, the creditors are able to obtain easy "default" debt judgments against these debtors. In New Jersey, defendants who have had debt judgments entered against them should next expect to receive an "information subpoena" from the creditor's attorney.

An adversary proceeding addresses issues that are more complex than what can be accomplished by filing a motion with the court.

Defending Bankruptcy Lawsuits

Many people file for bankruptcy protection because they need relief from their creditors. A personal bankruptcy filing can be shelter from the harassing collection efforts of debt collectors.
