Your first notification that you are being sued may come in the form of a summons but it will most likely be from a local attorney. It's important to consult a debt defense law firm to help you answer the summons. If you do not answer the summons they will go back to court and most likely receive a default judgment against you. Your answer has to comply with the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure or it could be struck.
Another common litigation strategy is to ask for the legal paperwork in a request for production which verifies that you actually owe the debt. Sometimes these companies do not produce adequate documentation to prove debts.
