  1. When I got the ID I also got the Voter registration. In January before I went back to PR I applied for Homestead since I wasn't going to be able to return for a few months. I guess that's it for the SOL. Anyway, it was going to be hard to use the SOL from PR since it's so confusing.
  2. Yes, I was available to be served in PR. I changed my PR ID to a FL ID when I went in December 2017. I bought a house before Maria, but didn't move to FL when I bought it. Would a change of ID be considered moving? RULE 1.510.SUMMARY JUDGMENT(a)For Claimant.A party seeking to recover on a claim, counterclaim, crossclaim, or third-party claim or to obtain a declaratory judgment may move for a summary judgment in that party’s favor on all or any part thereof with or without supporting affidavitsat any time after the expiration of 20 days from the commencement of the action or after ser
  3. This is from the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure RULE 1.190.AMENDED AND SUPPLEMENTAL PLEADINGS(a)Amendments.A party may amend a pleading once as a matter of course at any time before a responsive pleading is served or, if the pleading is one to which no responsive pleading is permitted and the action has not been placed on the trial calendar, may so amend it at any time within 20 days after it is served. Otherwise a party may amend a pleading only by leave of court or by written consent of the adverse party. If a party files a motion to amend a pleading, the party shall attach the propos
  4. There seems to be no deadline from the copies I received of the MSJ, but for the initial summons it did say 20 days. Last payment was June 2015. I changed my ID at the end of 2017 after I bought a house in FL(after the hurricane), but returned to PR in Jan 2018 and stayed in PR until September, then flew to FL, then back to PR in November. Yes, I still go back and forth to PR, but this year I have lived more in FL than PR.
  5. I now know that I should have done better research. 😞 After trying to find the SOL law for PR accounts--it's quite confusing because it has 3 years for somethings and 5 for others, but it's not very clear and every attorney I have called has giving me different time frames. I think I won't be able to use it. I really wished I had found this site before I answered. Also, I talk to a lawyer and the person told me that the affidavit and one of my affirmative answers can be strike, but that all I'm doing is delaying the inevitable. The lawyer wanted me to hire him, but the cost of hiring him
  6. No, they just sent a few statements. I found the credit card(sams personal/synchrony) agreement online and it has an arbitration clause. Here is my thread: https://www.creditinfocenter.com/community/topic/331117-sued-by-midland-in-florida-need-help/
  7. After reading a lot on this site about arbitration--I'm a bit overwhelmed and not sure if I'm able to use it at this stage. I got a summons in April and answered it the best I could. 10 days ago they filed a Motion of summary judgement, I received the MSJ about 5 days later in the mail. I don't know what to do. In the summons I denied everything with a template I found and copy/pasted it saying, "I'm without sufficient information to admit or deny the allegations contained therefore I deny them." My affirmative defense was stating the SOL from Puerto Rico(not the law, but just my und
  8. I received a summons a few months ago and I promptly responded to the summons denying the debt, but adding that if there was any actual debt I affirmed the SOL of Puerto Rico. Now, I recently received a MSJ from Midland's lawyers by mail and need help on how to proceed. I did find an error within the affidavit from the MSJ which would allowed to at least issue a MTS on that. Also, the original summons's affidavit was not notarized, but I didn't noticed it at the time. The debt is from Puerto Rico and as far as I know the SOL(3years) has passed. I want to add that the law firm ignored my u
