I've moved (6 months ago) and an old neighbor recently informed me that someone's attempting to serve me a civil summons.....(late car payments I'm assuming)...... if I'm never actually served.... well... what's the law in florida on this?
If they are unable to serve you personally, they will attempt substituted service by publication or some other means. Its always easier to address these issues head-on, so you may want to go see an attorney and have them look in to the case you know is coming.

Playing duck and hide with a repo is rarely a good idea. They will find a way to serve you at some point and there are ways to do so indirectly if it becomes apparent you are ducking the process server to avoid responsibility for a debt, whcih means you could find a judgment rendered gets enforced later out of the blue.
