I need advice. I received summons 2 weeks ago and have only this week to return letter of rersponse. I entered into the care one program 6 months ago withthe assumption all would be well with their assistance. The collection calls stoped but the legal docs keep rolling in. I can't ever get a return call from my so called attorney on the case! Should I take matters onto myself in order to get this response returned by the deadline? First time .. and advice is badly needed

Hi Janice:

Yes, you can handle these things yourself rather than paying extra money to others. As for the summons you should answer to that else the collection agency may win a default judgment against you.

Linda west:

Can you tell whether or not the bankruptcy has already been filed?

Thanks,

Aaron

If you don't answer the summons and you have an attorney what can the party suing you do? Also what can they do if the jud=ge do not give them their jugment against you?

Hi waldo,

If you don't answer to the summons, and don't appear in court on the stipulated date, the party suing you will win a default judgment against you, and you will be held in contempt of court. For that you may even have to stay in jail for a night or two.

What they can do if the judge rules against them depends on the circumstances, and the judgment order.

Thanks,

Aaron

Just got served a summons at home for unpaid credit card. Its in the amount of $930.
I know i owe the money and I want to pay it, in full or to help me, with payments.
Can I call the attorney of the creditor and try and work out a payment plan or just pay it with them? I just dont want to go to court, its money I owe and want to pay it.
Do I still need to go to court if I work out something with the creditors attorney?
What is the best thing for me to do, I dont want to go to court, I just want to pay them and be done....
Thanks...

My mom received a summons for an unpaid balamce for Capitol One. She only receives social security benefits no other income. Should she still response? She is in California. She is unable to pay anything. What do you recommend? What is the form called if she needs to respond?

Hi soupy:

If you have received a summons, you are required to answer to that, else the person suing you will be able to win a default judgment against you. You can try to gte the money from your other family members, or friends.

Noam:

You can reach an out of court settlement with the creditor, but you will have to answer to the summons. And if the summons requires you to appear in court, I am afraid you will have to do that. Else, you can be held in contempt of court.

Diana:

Yes, she should file the answer to the summons. As for the answers form you can request the court clerk to provide you with one, and help in filing the answer.

Thanks,

Aaron

Hi misslilly,

Welcome to this community Smile

Please let me know how old this bill is? Well, as you have received the summons, you should answer to tat for your own good, else the company suing you may win a default judgment against you.

As for the extra amount, late fees can get added depending on the terms of the service, and how late you have been. So, check the terms of the service for the late fees.

Thanks,

Aaron

I had a judgement placed against me and the collecgtion co won. I was also told that the costs of this action be "taxed" against me. What does this mean? I cannot pay this until my property sells and I live in the state of NC. Help!

received a summons (citation) from a representing firm to a credit card company I owe. There was a written agreement with this firm and my lawyer to pay a specified amount over a 6 month period to pay off this debt. This was done in August. I have paid 3 payments to date ...almost there. then I receive this summons. Should I respond to the summons
So lost in CA.

Hello, I just got a summons today to collect a debt, and I want to pay the debt off but I can't pay over 2000 what they're asking for. I want to give the right form for the court so they won't garnish my unemployment. This so awful but I've been laid off since February this year and I've been looking left and right for any job. I really need time to pay this debt off. I also have other huge credit debt I haven't even touched, I just can't afford it. I don't know what to do. I have a strict budget now, but I can't find that "written response" form. I'm from California, can someone help me? I've been to this website, but it's not much help :.courtinfo.ca.gov/selfhelp
