Get your hands on a copy of your contract between you and Synchrony. File a MTC Arbitration and file your "Answer." Here are some resources on how to effectively write and file both.

STOP! If this case is in Magistrate Court that is NOT what you do. Magistrate Court does not allow filing of motions in advance or discovery.  Please read ALL the Georgia threads on what to do.

You do not need to type up a formal answer. Magistrate Court in Dekalb has a pre-printed answer form.  Get one.  Fill it out and check off "deny" for the claim and file that with the Magistrate.  They will stamp it and give you a copy.  Within 30 days you will be notified of when the trial date is.  On that day have THREE copies of a MTC with you.  Study all the GA threads on what to do during the hallway conference and if it goes in front of the judge.  If you have more questions ask.
