I'm Being Sued - What Do I Do?
The first thing you need to do is "not" ignore the summons. Next, you should consider hiring a debt defense law firm.
Ignoring a summons will simply lead to more problems. The attorneys will return to the court, and when you don't appear, they'll ask the judge to give them a default judgment against you. A default judgment needs to be avoided at all costs, as it allows this law firm to attach your wages, freeze your bank funds and possibly put liens against your property.
Due to today's economic conditions, especially in Florida, the courts have been flooded with cases for credit card debt. These cases can be defended and the creditor must provide what evidence they have. However they have to be defended pursuant to the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure.
