I received a summons to appear in small claims court from capital one regarding credit card debt for a card I had years ago. I remember this acct only had a limit of $550 because we got it after my wife and I had to file bankruptcy due to the medical cost for our son who has cerebral palsy. Later we cut this card up because the interest rate was so high. I am now being sued for $3000 and the only information attached to the summons is a statement dated 2015. What should I request during the first court appearance? I'm totally lost with this and have never been sued before and have no idea what all is involved with this. I can't not afford an attorney due to the cost of care our son receives. Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time
