My law firm mails out a lot of letters to people who are getting sued. We offer a free consultation with an experienced attorney to help come up with a plan to deal with the entire situation.
You may be saying to yourself, “I have never heard of this plaintiff. How do I find out more details?”
If the local sheriff has not already served you with a copy of the complaint, they most likely will do so within the next week. The complaint will contain all the details about who is suing you. Please note that debt collectors buy and sell consumer debts with great frequency. As a consequence, don’t be alarmed if you don’t recognize the name of the debt collector/ plaintiff. The complaint will usually explain in clear detail the identity of the original creditor.
You might also want to go to www.annualcreditreport.com and download a copy of your credit report. The plaintiff will most likely be listed on your credit report.
The worst thing you can do is ignore the problem. Call today!
If you do not deal with the situation, this is what will happen. Once your creditor receives a judgment against you, they will take that judgment and apply for the garnishment of your paycheck. The garnishment papers are then served on your employer. The court papers will clearly state that your employer has 45 days to respond to the garnishment. The employer can respond by notifying the court that you no longer work there or start deducting money from your paycheck. The employer will then send the money to the court that ordered the garnishment. Once the money is received by the court, the court will forward the funds to the creditor.
Taking advantage of a free consultation with an experienced attorney is the obvious smart choice. Call us today. If you would like to watch a video or download a podcast I have prepared about this topic, please go to www.kellycanhelp.com/letter/.
