14. Did you request debt validation before the suit was filed? Note: if you haven't sent a debt validation request, don't bother doing this now - it's too late.


15. How long do you have to respond to the suit? (This should be in your paperwork). If you don't respond to the lawsuit notice you will lose automatically.

If not received within ten (10) days, Defendant will be liable for attorney fees set out for in 13-1-11 of O.C.G.A in addition to principal, interest, court costs

Wherefore, Plaintiff demands Judgement against Defendant in total costs.

16. What evidence did they send with the summons? An affidavit? Statements from the OC? Contract? List anything else they attached as exhibits.

  • Customer Agreement (copy - no personal information; generic; has handwritten: Cap 1, 2-29-05 to 4-30-08
  • Arbitration Agreement

17. Read this article:

Sued by a Debt Collector - Learn How to Fight Debt Lawsuits

I am responding on with the answer form provided by the County. There are 3 options to answer Plaintiff's complaint. I plan on circling "I cannot admit or deny the facts in the complaint for the reasons stated below:"

I haven't formulated all the answers yet. A combination of Denied and Admit.

Thanks so much for any and all assistance!
