I'm being sued and the plaintiff has sent me a waiver of service with my business name appearing incorrectly.

Asked over 1 year ago - Atlanta, GA

I am a sole prop and the business name is misspelled. Do I have to send in the waiver with the misspelling? Also it has been over 30 days because I didn't get the waiver because of the misspelling until 2 weeks ago.

    Answered . To properly protect your interests, you should consult an attorney. The plaintiff may have issues with service that could be favorable to you, but you need to protect yourself from default. An experienced attorney will know what to do...keep in mind your situation could be very time sensitive.
