Discover Bank Lawsuit Defense in Florida
Discover Bank routinely collects on their credit card accounts. Usually this involves them going to court and filing a lawsuit against consumers who have defaulted on their accounts.
Don't Ignore a collection lawsuit in Florida
Most people don't realize that ignoring a summons is exactly what Discover Bank is hoping you will do. In the United States most people will ignore a summons and by doing this, they often end up with more problems than they imagined.
When you ignore a summons, the credit card company can return to the court and ask for a default judgment to be issued against you. This usually results in:
- Wage garnishments.
- Frozen bank accounts, where your money is seized.
- A lien being possibly put against your home.
If you have received a summons for old credit card debt, there are a number of ways we can defend you when you're being sued.
Respond to the Lawsuit
Responding to the lawsuit requires that you file a written response with the court pursuant to the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure. You should consider hiring a debt defense law firm to assist in the defense of any collection lawsuit you may be facing.
