Account is a couple of years old and was charged off I believe? I have 30 days to respond. The Legal firm is in Atlanta.
If a judgment is obtained then your wages can be garnished, even if you work in SC (as they can domesticate a GA judgment in SC). Many of these accounts are old accounts that have been sold off many times so if you owe the debt and want to negotiate, call the attorney and see if they will settle. However, talk to an attorney that knows how to deal with these firms so you are not offering too much. In any event, you need to file an answer to the lawsuit within 30 days after you were served or they will get a default judgment.See question

Something does not seem right. If you entered into a consent order and then paid, how were you evicted. Why didn't you show the sheriff that you paid June rent. If the L did not have a right to evict, then yes, you have a case against the landlord for wrongful eviction and can recover the damages that you sustained. Get an attorneySee question

Who is running the HOA? When do they meet. You need to get the bylaws and see what they say about meetings, dues etc and somehow enforce your rights as a homeowner. See an attorney that knows about HOA law.See question
I am a renter in Atlanta GA. I have been living in the same apartments for over 3 years now. My July rent was late and the property manager stated that she could not accept my July rent (including late fees) without me submitting August rent becau...
The other attorney is correct but if you did sign a new lease then you would have the right to stay depending on your payment of July, August, late fees and court costs as you have a one time defense every 12 months to a dispossessory based on non payment of rent. If you do not have a new lease for some reason then you are a tenant at will and the Landlord can terminate on 60 days notice. Get an attorney to at least review the facts with you.See question

A judgement was issued against me 4 years ago, I only found out about it when I decided to sale my home because there is a lien on it. The sale closing is set for 1630, 06/22/2015, should I not close and get and attorney or is it too late?
As the first attorney said, if you were never properly served or failed to get notice of a trial date you may have a way to set aside the judgment. However, you did not state how much the judgment is for which is important because if you owe the money and the statue of limitations has not run, they can sue you again anyway. Also if the amount owed is small, it may be worth it to just pay it off rather than pay attorney fees to have it set aside. Any talk about bankruptcy is irresponsible especially in light of the absolute lack of facts to even think about filing and having something effect your credit for 7 years, See an attorney, tell them all the facts and get good, proper, advice.See question

You cannot stop them from suing or refusing to take a payment plan. However if they do sue, they most likely will sue in small claims court. I am cutting and pasting a very seldom used provision in the code that may assist you with this matter. You may want to tell the collection agency that you will use this provision in court so they might as well take your payment plan. § 15-10-46. Ordering deferred partial payment of judgment
(a) When the judgment is to be rendered and the party against whom it is to be entered requests it, the judge shall inquire fully into the earnings and financial status of such party and shall have full discretionary power to stay the entry of judgment, to stay execution, and to order partial payments in such amounts, over such periods, and upon such terms as seem just under the circumstances and as will assure a definite and steady reduction of the judgment until it is fully and completely satisfied.
(b) The judge of the magistrate court shall not be obligated to collect such deferred partial payments on judgments so rendered but, if the plaintiff so requests, he may do so at the expense of the plaintiff for clerical and accounting costs incurred thereby, not to exceed 10 percent of each payment.See question
