Debt Validation

The process of invalidating erroneous debts is an analysis of your credit report and preparation of correspondence to your creditors or collection agencies seeking validation of your debts. Once you are enrolled in a validation program, a dispute package is sent to each creditor and collection agency demanding that they provide the correct documentation and proof of their right to collect from you pursuant to state and federal law.

If the creditors and collection agencies are unable to provide accurate documentation, which we find is often the case, the debt is classified as invalid and therefore is unable to be collected upon.
