@admin @WhoCares1000 Hi! I’m filing out the response and do I check box 3b. And do I explore in words what I deny? How do I explain what is false? And do I check boxes 2,5,6 or do I leave blank. I can post if I need to. Thanks y’all 

There is a thread in the "I need a lawyer" section that discussed dealing with cases in California. I suggest your read that.

As for the allegations that you deny, all you say is "The defendant denies [Allegations being denied such as all allegations in the First Action] and demands strict proof thereof." You do not have to get all wordy and write a huge work on this. Just one sentence. Simple and sweet.

Hi @adminI don’t know if you’re getting my messages but I did post the summons on this post. I don’t know if you can see it but I can. Did I not post it correctly? 

If you read the article I posted about how to answer a summons and take the advice of @WhoCares1000, answering the summons should be easy.  You specifically deny everything that is not the address, location or identity of you or the plaintiff and demand strict proof.  You can use the form.  Mention any defenses that you think would apply.  https://www.creditinfocenter.com/legal/affirmative-defenses.shtml

Looks fine to me as a layman (I am not a CA lawyer or resident). It really should not matter once the check gets delivered and goes through but you have to do it to protect your self from any shenanigans.

@WhoCares1000 ok I sent my first payment of $2650 bank check, with the certified green sticker thing....yesterday. No summones yet, checked my court records and nothing still the same, no court date. Last payment $400 by feb 7th... Can I just file an answer before I get the summones? Should I?

No because there is no need to until you are served. Just watch to make sure they don't try alternative service. If they try that, then file you answer. You gave them your correct address and they still cannot figure out how to serve you (or they are waiting to see if you follow through with the agreement). That is on them, not you.

Be ready to file an answer however if you do get served (or they try alternative service).

I know this isn’t over yet but I’m very amazed how people like you are willing to take time and help people like me. U didn’t get sarcastic or just tell me “read this” u took the time to explain. THANK YOU

@HelpMepls I went to file response and you can’t enter the clerks office to do anything. They had a self help area to stamp your response with a machine and you fill and file cover letter and submit to the box they had set up. No payment made but they may ask later? It was fast and easy though.

At this point, once the payment arrives, just watch and make sure that the case gets dismissed by the plaintiff. Also, keep all the paperwork in case they plaintiff does not dismiss and you get served because that will be the basis for your affirmative defense.

Back again...should I call hunt and heriques to send me a letter of confirmation of payment settlement? Receipt? I have not been served, no one has attempted, I can’t go to the court because it’s closed. I looked online on court records mine still looks the same just case number, date filed.

You have a written copy of the settlement and the receipts showing that you made the payment as well as the green cards for each payment you sent, correct? If so, then that is your proof should H&H try to continue the case and have you served. You don't need anything else from them and I would not talk to them again if I could help it.

Watch the case until you see that it has been dismissed, either by H&H (who should actually dismiss it at this point) or by the courts for lack of prosecution. If H&H does not dismiss the case, you might be able to file your own dismissal with prejudice attaching a copy of your records on the settlement as evidence of accord and satisfaction.

If you do eventually get served or H&H tries to do alternative service, you follow the same process as before, file an answer with the affirmative defense of accord and satisfaction, attach a copy of your settlement records, and file a motion for dismissal with prejudice. If they try to get a default judgement, you can counter that by stating you have not been served and file your own motion for dismissal with prejudice as outlined above.

So, for right now, just watch the case online and and see what they try to do next. I doubt they will try to continue the case. The courts are backlogged and a judge would be pissed to have this on his/her docket with is more than full. Also, watch your credit reports and if they don't update the debt to "Satisfied for less than the full amount" after 3 months for that trade line, file a dispute with the credit reporting agencies showing that you came to an agreement on that debt.
