  1. Is it too late to talk to the fam law firm at this point?
  2. The debt was for $28,000 with a fam law firm. The last payment nearly 4 yrs ago. The collection agency tacked on the additional interest of $7000+. The CA is DYNAMIC LEGAL FIRM. The letter says "our client"; so I'm guessing they've hired them as opposed to have sold the debt?
  3. The first letter addressed to me; the second was to someone else with my address.
  4. Also, they sent me a letter with someone else's name with MY ADDRESS!
  5. Hi. I received a letter from a firm representing "their client" who states I owe $28,000 plus interest totaling $35,000 and change. The last time a payment was made was Sept of 2011. With their generic form letter was a form for fee arbitration. The form letter also said they have the right to pursue all legal remedies to their client, "including attachment of the above asset and forced sale, if necessary." There isn't an asset. I don't understand what they're referring to? Is that grounds for dismissal? The letter obviously being used improperly? Thank you.
  6. Thanks for the reply 1st Step! What is that?
  7. Help! I'm back. I'm about 7 months away from the SOL & I'm getting calls from my worthless divorce attorney's office saying that I can call to discuss making a lump sum payment, payment arrangements depending on my situation, or the threat of them selling my case of to credit collection agency. WHAT DO I DO?
  8. @nascar, how can I get a copy of that? Thank you so much for your help! I tried to message you, but couldn't due to your settings!
  9. @1stStep, my worthless lawyer did ask my ex to pay my attorney fees, but the Judge only had him pay a very small amount of it. Do you guys think I should contact the firm and see if they'll lower the amount I owe and make some sort of payment arrangement? I really don't want to file BK.
  10. So, what you're saying is, it's like getting blood from a turnip? A scare tactic @TomnTex?
  11. They're trying to get me for $27,000! They're family law lawyers local here in the state, do you think I should prep myself to be served? They're a prestigious law firm that has had many high profile cases. I, on the other hand don't have the money to cover this. I'm so nervous. @TomnTex. I appreciate everyone's help here.
  12. Thank you, @shellieh98 and @TomnTex! @TomnTex, what does "COLLECTION PROOF" mean???
  13. Hey everyone! I need some advice. What's the likeliness that a family law lawyer will serve me for the balance of a debt from 5 years ago? The last payment made was 3 years ago. My credit is bad, I don't own a home or have any assets, I have a severely disabled child, and just recently, I've started receiving phone calls from them after 3 years. I'm nervous and want to do right, but if don't have much and I worry that if I call, then that's going to start the SOL again. Please help me. No need for negative comments, please.
  14. @DefendingSenior, that's your call. I would, I learned that here. Unless the affiant is able to be PERSONALLY served, they're out of compliance with ccp 1987. http://codes.lp.findlaw.com/cacode/CCP/3/4/3/2/s1987 ( In the case of the production of a party to the record of any civil action or proceeding or of a person for whose immediate benefit an action or proceeding is prosecuted or defended or of anyone who is an officer, director, or managing agent of any such party or person, the service of a subpoena upon any such witness is not required if written notice requesting the witness to attend before a court, or at a trial of an issue therein, with the time and place thereof, is served upon the attorney of that party or person. The notice shall be served at least 10 days before the time required for attendance unless the court prescribes a shorter time. If entitled thereto, the witness, upon demand, shall be paid witness fees and mileage before being required to testify. The giving of the notice shall have the same effect as service of a subpoena on the witness, and the parties shall have those rights and the court may make those orders, including the imposition of sanctions, as in the case of a subpoena for attendance before the court. © If the notice specified in subdivision ( is served at least 20 days before the time required for attendance, or within any shorter period of time as the court may order, it may include a request that the party or person bring with him or her books, documents, electronically stored information, or other things. The notice shall state the exact materials or things desired and that the party or person has them in his or her possession or under his or her control. Within five days thereafter, or any other time period as the court may allow, the party or person of whom the request is made may serve written objections to the request or any part thereof, with a statement of grounds. Thereafter, upon noticed motion of the requesting party, accompanied by a showing of good cause and of materiality of the items to the issues, the court may order production of items to which objection was made, unless the objecting party or person establishes good cause for nonproduction or production under limitations or conditions. The procedure of this subdivision is alternative to the procedure provided by Sections 1985 and 1987.5 in the cases herein provided for, and no subpoena duces tecum shall be required.
