You can try to call them and inform them that you are not living in the USA anymore. I would also send a letter if possible. They might sue you anyways. If they do, your parents might accept the service and/or they might try alternate service. You can then answer the case stating the court has lack of personal jurisdiction because you now reside abroad. Realize however that the SOL is tolled for however long you reside outside of the USA.
That said, even with that, they might get a judgement anyways (or you could let them default). Even if that happens, most foreign countries do not honor USA civil judgements so they would not be able to collect unless you returned to the USA.
I received a "Notice of Intent of Legal Action" from Kenosian and Miele, LLP but I no longer reside in the states or have assets there. I've been given until 1/26/19 to respond. Should I contact the CA, the law firm handling the case, or the OC to inform them that I am living overseas for the foreseeable future? Is a phone call/email enough or do I need to find a way to send a CMRR?
Thank you so much. I'll start reading more into the arbitration. I know MTC is Motion to Compel but what is JAMS? So you're saying for my reply back to the courts should mention the arbitration? I'll look into it more.
File an answer to the suit using arbitration in JAMS as an affirmative defense. You can start a case in JAMS without paying the fee immediately. Then file a MTC arbitration with the court. If the motion is approved Midland will ask what you want to drop it. You want a mutual walk away. If the MTC is denied by the court you can appeal that or settle at any time prior to trial. I would try arbitration before settling.
