Today was a hearing for the Plaintiff’s Motion for Summary Judgment where Plaintiff’s attorneys asked Judge to deny the Motion right at the start I feel like I should file Motion to Dismiss the case Need advice
Hello. I am in need of some advice. I have received several harassing phone calls from a so called "legal office". The caller (of which may be a pre-recorded voice) states that legal papers have been filed against me. The caller always states that I must return their call "today" (no matter which time they called, it is always today) and that if I don't call them back that someone will come to my house or my work today. The caller seems to know my address and the name of my employer, but they never leave a name for their company. The number that shows up on my caller id is always a local number, but the number they give me to call them back is an 844 number. The caller always ends the call with the line "and you have now been legally notified". This smells like a scam to me, but I am tired of these harassing phone calls. They even called my Mother-in-law once looking for me with the same information. I need some advice on how to stop these calls and handle this situation.
Just received a summons to appear in court for a old debt from 2012. In the complaint it states that I need to appear in court on February 3rd or a judgment by default would be held against me in the amount of 1461.13 cents. I have researched how to answer, as well as how to file a written appearance. I'm pretty nervous though, because I've never been through anything like this. With me denying almost all of their claims, is there a chance this will go to trial? And if so, what consequences would there be? Do you think they'd be willing to settle out of court, since it is such a small amount? Someone please help!!!
