  • I'm receiving a court summons for unpaid credit card debt

    You may as well call and make an appointment to get served. Otherwise, you may be annoyed when they knock on your door at a bad time. You may have some defenses. Get a copy of your contract for the credit card and gather all your statements. If you get a judgment against you the interest is 1/4 of the credit card interest. Depending on the amount you owe, you may want to consider hiring an attorney. Over $5,000 is no longer small claims.

    The answers you have received are all correct. Number one worry about your health and do what you need to do medically. Then I suggest you see an attorney in your area to discuss and edudcate yourself on the law in Florida. My firm would be happy to give you a free appointment.
