** Case details above **
I'd like to get some information if possible. I've been doing some research and found a few things already. Just have a few questions since the hearing for them to prove the case is still valid is coming up soon.
They say declaration of non service filed? But they served me in person. Wondering what that means?
Also, what usually happens after these types of hearings? What steps should I take beforehand?
Should I settle if I can? I was going to pay them when they filed this but the collector I was speaking to refused to send me anything in writing. All I was requesting was a letter stating it would be removed from my credit report.
Please review and let me know what you think...
Did a little research on Rauchs lawyers in the local district court. Cant really find 1 case where they actually went to trial. Most cases were 1) default. 2) DWOP because of inactivity or 3) DWOP / Dismissed because the plaintiff Didn't announce Ready for trial or failed to show. This includes the specific lawyer who filed the Motion to Reinstate. I found numerous instance where he didn't announce ready so it was dismissed or filled to show for trial. Would a judge listen to or review any this in court?
Thank you so much for your reply.
I'd like to ask a couple further questions.
1. Are the dockets online updated in a timely manner or is there a chance I could be served and I won't see the update until many days later to make it too late to respond?
2. I would still like to know what this date and update refers to.
01/2021 at (Time) in Department (Letter) at (Address)
Order to Show Cause Re: Failure to File Proof of Service and Failure to File Default Judgment Pursuant to (Number Code)
Does it mean that the plaintiff has until 01/2021 to show proof of service or a judgement won't be made until 01/2021? My apologies for the lack of knowledge. This is my first time having a summons so I am completely lost with the terminology.
3. If being served and living abroad, do you absolutely recommend an attorney to handle this for me or should I respond with letters of my own?
Thank you again for your responses.
