  1. I am done and dusted, Its over for me. Just received a "Request for Dismissal" Answer all the Plaintiff requests and know that the Plaintiff will need to show up in court to proceed. Maybe Covid helped me but when I talked to an attorney he said he has never seen Unifund show in court. I used this forum and the internet to respond to all documents from the Plaintiff. Good Luck and stay safe. Last please wear a mask we can kick this but it will take all of us.
  2. Has anybody filed a motion to request that a CA get a bond to pay any award ???? If you have hired an attorney what was your final cost? I need help on this any link to samples etc would be helpful.
  3. Just received my Discovery from them, I will post info on it latter. Just a few simple question my RFA were answered "Plaintiff is unable to admit or deny" on lot of my questions. Some of them asking to confirm their own documents. Can thay do this? Can I file a motion to compel? Also the alleged contract is 11 pages long all on one page. Impossible to read. I will request a legible copy. Don't know the best way to do this. any advice ?? Last the RFA were signed by their attorney but it is missing "Penalty of Perjury" statement. As I read the CCP rules RFA need to be signed under oath. Are Attorneys an exception? Did the RFA from Unifund's attorneys need to be signed under oath???? If their attorney did not sign under oath can I throw their reply to RFA out ????
  4. SOL When will SOL start any California Case Law. I read that SOL will start the day of default. So If the CC Statement has a due date of January 25th the account would be in default on January 26th. OR would is be 30 after default?? If it starts the day of default then I am in luck if I can use Delaware's 3 years SOL. Any case law in California clarifying the SOL starting date ????

  6. Thank you, I have gone from delay to file BK to maybe I should fight this. Google Scholar RESURGENCE FINANCIAL v PAMELA S. CHAMBERS https://scholar.google.com/scholar_case?case=10121350625093322993&q=RESURGENCE+FINANCIAL+LLC+v.+CHAMBERS&hl=en&as_sdt=4,5
  7. Filed a GD a few days ago and just to make sure I did it right I reviewed the court record to find a sample. After a half hour searching the records under Unifund I found only one reply and it was to confirm the debit. 1000's of cases almost all of them went to default and a few were settled or dismissed. Guess if you just file a response you are in the 1%. Going back soon my fee waiver was denied, I am requesting a hearing. If I can get my FW I get what i need is time to file for BK. Because so few file a reply I am wondering if maybe I should fight it. Trial date is 5 months out. What are your thoughts. My credit problems started in 2016. 1. SOL on all my debit would be end of 2020 by with Covid SOL was extended 6 months so now June 2021. 2. A BK will stay on my record till 2030 or 2031. All my bad debt will fall off my record by 2023. 3. Could I offer a settlement to Unifund for court ($225.00) filing fees? I allegedly owe them almost $8,000.00. Just a crazy thought. 4. A BK would clear my phone, right now I receive about 30+ calls a week and have stopped answering my phone. Thank you for any replies
  8. Don't use it. Spent over an hour entering info and it was not right on the forms
  9. I said it was because of thinair and no sunlight. Thank s for the repy
  10. Saving $$ to file BK. Found this and just wanted to see if anybody has used this software. Feel safer with an Attorney but I am finding myself short on funds.

  12. 🙈 Today the Sheriff delivered the papers, so my clock has started. Here is my situation. I was waiting for the SOL to run or file BK if I was served. My timeline to file (BK) is in September so I need 45 days. I won’t be ready to file before September. Total debit 40K + : Chapter 7 : No means : income below. Served by Law Offices of Kenosian & Miele, LLP for Unifund for about $8000 plus cost. Option 1. Do nothing and file BK as planned. Lets the cards fall where they will. Option 2. File something to delay the case until September when the BK will wipe it out. Found this as helpful for filing a GD https://saclaw.org/wp-content/uploads/lrg-responding-to-a-lawsuit.pdf My questions are …. 1. How long will it take Law Offices of Kenosian & Miele, LLP to file and receive default? 2. How long will it take to get a judgment after they file? 3. Am I wasting my time doing anything and just keep going forward on the BK, don’t worry about this BS? 4. Anybody get a fee waiver in California on unemployment? 5. Has Covid slowed the Collections Court down in Chatsworth? Will the default/judgment be delayed by 10 days from their filing? 6. Could I file a countersuit and keep this going after the BK discharged the debit. TKU in advance Counterclaim thoughts might be grabbing thin air???? John P. Kenosian is adding unlicensed practice by using “Law Offices of Kenosian & Miele, LLP” as name in court documents. K&M, LLP is not registered with the CA. State Bar. “Law Offices of Kenosian & Miele, LLP” is not registered with the SOS of CA.” Kenosian & Miele, LLP” is a registered LLP but not “Law Offices of….” Kenneth J. Miele died in 2015. So Mr. Kenosian is in violation of Ethics Opinions 1986-90, using a dead man’s name in biz name. https://www.calbar.ca.gov/Portals/0/documents/ethics/Opinions/1986-90.htm Again thin air, stay at home has left me inside with no sunlight. I need to get out soon.
  13. Did the collection agents just receive an extra 6 months on SOL in California ?? https://www.courts.ca.gov/documents/appendix-i.pdf "Emergency rule 9. Tolling statutes of limitations for civil causes of action 2 3 (a) Tolling statutes of limitations over 180 days 4 5 Notwithstanding any other law, the statutes of limitations and repose for civil 6 causes of action that exceed 180 days are tolled from April 6, 2020, until October 7 1, 2020. 8 9 (Subd (a) amended effective May 29, 2020.) 10 11 (b) Tolling statutes of limitations of 180 days or less 12 13 Notwithstanding any other law, the statutes of limitations and repose for civil 14 causes of action that are 180 days or less are tolled from April 6, 2020, until August 15 3, 2020. 16 17 (Subd (b) amended effective May 29, 2020.) 18 19 Emergency Rule 9 amended effective May 29, 2020. 20 21 "
