  1. Thanks, but their website keeps giving me an error msg. I was wondering what other free legal aid resources I may have in Los Angeles. The main issue is that I cannot afford the gas, and so even a small drive is quite expensive to me.
  2. Both Pasadena Court and Chtsworth Court are in the LA county, was the lawfirm required to file it in Pasadena (closest place where i live) or either one works for the CA laws?
  3. The website says that I was served last friday, but i was never served! Also, the closed court to me is in Pasadena, not Chatsworth
  4. Hi guys, I need some urgent help with this case. I am not a lawyer and thus quite scared of what is happening. Few days ago i received a letter from a legal aid stating that I was the defendant in a lawsuit case (credit card debt). I used the case number they gave me and checked, and indeed there is a lawsuit against me. Today, about 10 days later, I find that: 09/10/2015 PROOF OF SERVICE OF SUMMONS AND COMPLAINT FILED. SERVED AS TO (XXXXXX, YYYYYYY). but i never received anything!!!! and my wife, who has lost her job is at home all day and she never got anything!!! What should i do??? Who has received my papers? How am I supposed to defend myself if I do not know what's in those documents? (I do not have the money to go to court, the gas is way too expensive for me). Also, I live near Altadena (CA), and the closest courthouse I think is in Pasadena (CA), why would they file in Chatsworth (CA)? Please somebody help
  5. Thank you very much for your answer, so relieving!! Also, I am looking thruogh the many posts on this forum, and I have just started preparing my answer, however each time i try to access a file (posted by Homeless in CA or Girl111) i get an error message; anybody knows if those files are still availabe?
  6. Hi guys, I hope somebody can answer my question. Few days ago I received a letter from a Non-profit 501©3 company claiming that a lawsuit was filed against me; they listed he case number. Indeed, after I checked the case number, a lawsuit by the Winn Law Group against me has been filed with the LA Superior court. Total amount ~ $7,100 So first question: how do they know that? Anyhow, when I checked the online "Case Summary" I found this: Case Summary Case Number: XXYYNN CAVALRY SPV I LLC VS. XXXXXXX ZZZZZZZ Court: Chatsworth CourthouseFiling Date: 08/12/2015 Case Type: COLLECTIONS CASE (Limited Jurisdiction) Status: PENDING Future Hearings 07/27/2018 at 08:30 AM in department F43 at 9425 Penfield Ave., Chatsworth, CA 91311 OSC - 3.740 COLLECTIONS-DEFAULT JUDGMENT History Parties Plaintiff: CAVALRY SPV I LLC AS ASSIGNEE OF CITIBANK N A Attorney: WINN LAW GROUP, APC - JOHN E. GORDON Defendant: XXXXXXXX ZZZZZZZ Attorney: None Party Information Histories (Dates listed in descending order) 08/18/2015 OSC HEARING IS SET FOR 07/27/18 AT 08:30A M., IN DEPARTMENT F43 . ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE HEARING SIGNED AND FILED BY BENNY C. OSORIO, JUDGE TO SHOW WHY SANCTIONS SHOULD NOT BE IMPOSED FOR FAILURE TO FILE PROOF OF SERVICE AND FAILURE TO FILE DEFAULT JUDGMENT PURSUANT TO CRC 3.740. CERTIFICATE OF MAILING FILED. 08/18/2015 CASE FILE FORWARDED TO RECORDS RE: FILING 08/12/2015 COLLECTIONS CASE COMPLAINT FILED PURSUANT TO CRC 3.740. RN CHA505953021. 08/12/2015 SUMMONS ISSUED. 08/12/2015 SUMMONS FILED. However, what is a little bit strange to me is that I have not received yet any summons. Is this normal? Also, in the original note from the non-profit, they states that "you may have as little as 30 days from the filing date to respond, even if you think you have not been served properly". From my understanding, I have 30 days from the date I am served, not from the date of filing, isn't that right? Also, what does it mean "CERTIFICATE OF MAILING FILED"? If I have not received any summons, how am I supposed to know what's in the lawsuit??? In addition, could anybody help to translate this" SHOW WHY SANCTIONS SHOULD NOT BE IMPOSED FOR FAILURE TO FILE PROOF OF SERVICE AND FAILURE TO FILE DEFAULT JUDGMENT PURSUANT TO CRC 3.740." Thank everybody, I don't hide how concerned I am right now.
  7. @Clydesmom: that is true, they can obtain a judgement if they prove I own them the debt, and even in that case, because my credit is already in the trash I can just file for bankruptcy. Also, if I read it right, because I can prove I have zero (really zero!) money (zero income and zero properties) I think I qualify for no-fee bankruptcy. But I will let them first file the lawsuit, and then I will file for bankruptcy: at least the State of California will make few bucks from these morally driven lawyers!
  8. Hy guys, I have been reading a lot on this forum and I want to thank all those who brought a beam of hope into the lives of many people! Thanks! This is my issue: on July 9 I received a letter from a law group, signed and dated by a lawyer July 6 2015, informing me of their "Intention to file litigation....". They informed me that I had 30 days to dispute the validity of the debt. On August 3rd, I sent a letter (didn't think to make it certified!) to the law firm. Today, August 9, I receive another letter from the same law firm (dated and signed Aug 6) stating they have "Intention to file litigation...". Now, if I am not mistaken, they have violated the 30 days period: the original letter states "unless you dispute the validity of this debt within 30days after the receipt of this notice..." now the receipt is Jul 9 2015. The second letter in which they renew their intention to file the lawsuite is dated Aug 6 2015. The 30 days period from the receipt I beleive starts on July 9 2015 and end on Aug 8 2015 (11.59pm), thus the first day after the 30 days is Aug 9 2015. So to summarize: Letter_1 Date signed by their lawyer: Jul 6, 2015Date received by me: Jul 9, 2015 [30 days are supposed to pass, however i receive a new letter from them] Letter_2 Date signed by their lawyer: Aug 06, 2015Date received by me: Aug 8 2015. Is this something that violates the Federal Act? Btw, I do not have a job, i do not own a car or a house or any property: what is their gain from taking me to court?
