On a daily basis, a credit union is faced with having to comply with a multitude of legal documents that are served on it.

If you find these documents confusing and intimidating, attend this multi-state seminar to learn the best practices of how to deal effectively with these documents and the parties who serve them upon you.

  • Legal differences among subpoenas, summonses, levies, garnishments, writs of attachments and warrants;
  • What your credit union should know about the Right to Financial Privacy Act, the Financial Privacy Act, and similar laws and regulations;
  • Verifying member information when complying with subpoenas, garnishments and levies;
  • Best practices that can be applied when processing these legal documents;
