Received a complaint notice from a foreign LLC and sent preliminary objections to Court House and Plaintiff within appropriate time limit. What happens next? Whom should I hear from first? Have no written agreement with junk debt agency and just received a print-out requiring weekly payments totalling more than the original debtor's total amount.
It depends upon what county the case is in. Typically, if preliminary objections are timely filed and served, then a hearing on the preliminary objections is held with the appropriate motions judge. You should contact the court or department of court records to verify that your preliminary objections were timely filed and inquire as to the hearing date for the same.
Hope this helps -
Local practices vary on how Preliminary Objections move throught the court system. Usually, there is an office called court administration, or something like that. Call them and ask what to expect and what to do next. At a minimum, there's nothing you can do until the other side has had a chance to respond to your POs

The attorney providing this response is only licensed in Pennsylvania, and you should contact an attorney in your jurisdiction if it is outside Pennsylvania.
Each county usually has a different policy to determine what happens after preliminary objections are filed. I would recommend that you you go to the county's website and look at the 'local rules of court'. Therein will explain what the process is. Keep in mind that a hearing will usually be scheduled on the matter, however, it can/will be canceled if the other side amends their pleadings to conform to your objections.
