  1. @HockeyFan Reminds me of the smarty pants arrogant attorney that "won" the case against me in State Court. He told me in the hallway how he went to school for 6 years and he was a great litigator, blah blah blah, barf! When it came time to do the appeal, I kicked their behinds because the law was on my side and their case was full of holes and mistakes. Because they are successful at bullying and intimidating 98% of the people they meet, they just do it out of habit. Some of them like to argue just to hear themselves talk and be big shots and lie lie lie. Everything she said is tota

  2. Thought it might......its something that might be used to gain some leverage in any settlement negogiations. Not a method I particularly favor, as most people do not have the money to do lump sum settlements (which are the only way to do them...the payment route is not viable, the bottom feeders lie too much and sometimes the OP's situation changes to the worse). But Texasrocker knows Texas pretty well AND the 1st Item on the agenda before ALL else is the Answer as he says. Then you have options in which way to take the case, otherwise your dead in the water. Good luck.

  4. Thanks! It's been a while since I posted up here. I've spent the last couple of months getting my life back together and getting caught up at work. This lawsuit took up so much time and energy. Also, I've been meaning to get some copies of my documents posted for others to reference. I just need to redact some of the info. Hopefully I can get those items posted up this week!

  5. Go to your courts website and get an answer form there, fill it out and file it with the court, mail a copy to the plaintiff

  6. You can always negotiate the settlement and make a counter offer. You have to be the one to decide whether or not to settle or fight the case, no one else can determine that. If you do settle however, you don't want a judgment against you right from the beginning. You would want determine the settlement amount, and agree to pay it, then it would become an account stated and you could then make your payments.

  7. Yes, I thought of this as well. You can actually post the complaint in the legal column of the paper and eventually it will count as served, and probably get a default judgment when they don't answer it. However, it doesn't cure the bigger problem; actually finding them and determining if they have anything to collect (not to mention actually collecting). There's no shortage of Cali defendants here who haven't paid plaintiff a dime.

  8. @BV80 Did I read this correctly that there is no wage garnishment in SC for credit card debt? SECTION 37-5-104. No garnishment. With respect to a debt arising from a consumer credit sale, a consumer lease, a consumer loan, or a consumer rental-purchase agreement, regardless of where made, the creditor may not attach unpaid earnings of the debtor by garnishment or like proceedings. HISTORY: 1962 Code Section 8-800.334; 1974 (58) 2879; 1985 Act No. 121, Section 8.

  9. I disagree. In my experience, MOST California defendants win their cases against JDB (or get dismissals). Just look at the board today. I think two more posters got their cases dismissed. JDBs frequently dismiss when you subpoena the CCP 98 declarant.
