  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. 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?
  7. @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!
  8. @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.
  9. So, what you're saying is, it's like getting blood from a turnip? A scare tactic @TomnTex?
  10. 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.
  11. Thank you, @shellieh98 and @TomnTex! @TomnTex, what does "COLLECTION PROOF" mean???
  12. 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.
  13. @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 atte
  14. Thanks, Seadragon! I think I fixed it thanks to you. Testing. http://www.creditinfocenter.com/community/topic/324060-sued-by-hunt-henriques-getting-close-to-trial/#entry1299417 AWESOME! Thank you. Ignore my pm reply. I hadn't seen your post yet here.
  15. @DefendingSenior, yes, that's the form. You have to go to the court & have it stamped prior to having it served (make sure to take two copies so you can keep a stamped copy for yourself). Also, you'll want the person who attempts service to do so AT LEAST 2-3 times (my Process server attempted service twice). Does your CCP 98 say that the declarant will be able to be served 20 days immediately prior to trial? Make sure you do it at least 2-3 times within those 20 days prior to trial. Whomever you get to attempt service, make sure they fill out a declaration of service. Contact your local s
  16. @DefendingSenior I tried to post a link for CCP 1987, but my links and copy/paste don't work for some reason. Google CCP 1987. Admins, why am I unable to copy/paste?
  17. @DefendingSenior, I just got a dismissal without prejudice from H & H. They sent me a CCP 98 with the "Dec in Lieu" & I paid a process server to serve a subpoena to their authorized agent (ABC Legal). Well, that person who signed the Dec in Lieu was not able to be PERSONALLY served. With a CCP 98, that person who signed the Declaration has to be personally served & show up to court. These JDB's think that people will not fight and they'll collect an automatic judgment. H & H put in for a dismissal prior to trial. I found out after I filed my motion, declaration, and trial brief
  18. Calawyer, the Dismissal Request I received from the JDB's attorney was not stamped by the court clerk. That's what kind of confused me. Here's what's on the website, though. Damn, I can't paste here via this laptop? I don't know why? I'm able to paste via cell phone. Is there a setting or something?
  19. I just got the Dismissal request from the JDB's attorney! Will I get something from the court saying it was approved?
  20. Homeless, what happened when you sent your memorandum? Did they reply?
  21. Homeless, is there a form for that in your thread? I'm not being lazy, I'm on a phone right now as the laptop died the day after I filed my paperwork. Literally!
  22. Thank you, guys! And Ryan, yes, the SOL was 2 months away from being up when they filed!! I got a fee waiver, so I can't recoup that. I'd like to get them to pay the $60 I paid the process server, but don't know that that will ever happen. What about having the negative mark on my credit reports deleted?
