This manual explores the intricacies of debt collection in Florida for both secured and unsecured claims. Pre-judgment and post-judgment procedures are described, as well as issues of exemptions, immunity, bankruptcy, fraudulent transfers, and discovery in aid of execution. Helpful practice forms are also provided.

Highlights of the new Eighth Edition:

  • Florida Supreme Court's resolution of a judicial split over whether a unilateral attorney fees provision in a credit card contract is made reciprocal to a debtor defendant under F.S. 57.105
  • Florida Legislature's newly added subsection (8) to F.S. 57.105 involving debtor defenses and attorney fee
  • Filing of a more streamlined small business case and the extension of the increased debt limit under COVID-19 Bankruptcy Relief Extension Act of 2021
  • Newly enacted Uniform Commercial Real Estate Receivership Act
  • Recent amendment to the Florida Small Claims Rules prohibiting a non-attorney from representing a business entity in appellate proceedings
  • Repeal of F.S. 607.1421, eliminating the personal liability of directors, officers, and agents of an administratively dissolved corporation
