ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A new service is making it easier for New Mexicans to handle debt collectors.
The Online Dispute Resolution program allows people facing debt-related lawsuits to handle them through a website instead of going to court.
You can use it if, say, your bank is suing you over credit card debt, or a hospital is seeking payment for overdue bills. The parties can exchange offers and negotiate a settlement, all online and without lawyers.
“It’s also an opportunity to hear from the other side and perhaps, come to a resolution without having to take time off work, find parking,” Judge Jane Levy said.
The free service was rolled out statewide this month. For more information, click here.
