In 2009 I was extremely ill to the point I had to turn my finances over to my spouse. During that time, my spouse signed for a summons on a credit card debt. They never gave it to me. I only just became aware of it via a credit report. Bottom line, I did not get the opportunity to validate the debt or defend myself. Do I have any legal grounds to vacate the judgment at this point?
I found this here at Credit Infocenter at the "vacating judgments" page: "There are also a few other instances where a judgment can be removed. If you were serving in the military over seas, you never should have been sued under the Soldiers and Sailors Act. Or maybe you were on SSI (social security income) or permanently disabled. Consider the angles to determine if the judgment should and can be removed from your credit file." (Here is the URL: http://www.creditinfocenter.com/legal/VacatingJudgments.shtml) Does this mean I can get my judgment vacated since I am on SSI? I already did the interrogatories and told them I have no income or assets, and they have never attempted to collect anything after that. However I would still like to get the judgment removed. How would I proceed with this? Thank you very much.
