WSLL Recommends: Wisconsin Collection Law

We are often asked about collection law. To find information we turn to Wisconsin Collection Law, by Robert A. Pasch.

In its second edition, Wisconsin Collection Law is volume 12 and 13 of the Wisconsin Practice Series published by Thomson Reuters. It is a comprehensive publication on substantive and procedural law.

Topics include:
  • Pre-suit considerations
  • Collection regulation
  • Consumer credit transactions
  • Marital property concerns
  • Bulk transfers
  • Obtaining a civil or small claims money judgment
  • Attachment
  • Injunctive relief
  • Replevin: non-consumer and consumer
  • Judgments and foreign judgments
  • Executions and exemptions
  • Supplemental proceedings/examination
  • Garnishment
  • Receivers
  • Creditors' actions
  • Other collection issues
Sample and mandatory court forms are also included. Volume 13 consists entirely of appendices referring to selected Wisconsin statutes and regulations, commonly used statutes of limitations, and federal acts.

Wisconsin Collection Law is available to check out at the State Law Library and our branch libraries in the Milwaukee and Dane County courthouses. It is also available on Westlaw for free in our libraries.
