Tiny Chat 128: Credit Card Diversion

NCSC's Tiny Chat team paid a virtual visit to Lancaster, Pennsylvania to learn from Janis Jeffreys, Diversion Program Coordinator at the Lancaster County Court of Common Pleas, about their Consumer Credit Card Diversion Program. This Diversion program does so many things: provides time and space for court staff to review borrower documentation for legal sufficiency, statute of limitations, and service of process; connects eligible borrowers to meet with a certified credit counseling agency; and affords parties an opportunity to settle cases outside of the courtroom. Learn about how this court is enforcing procedural protections and ensuring that consumer credit card cases are treated individually and with care and dignity to all sides—all with minimal cost to the court.
