Check the statute of limitations for contracts in your state, if it is past that time you do not have to pay. If it is within the time limitations, you may have a defense called laches.
The amount due was $160.00 and I had called the collections agency after the first letter asking if I was still able to pay it.

If you want to see if a court case has been filed against you, you can go on the Nebraska Supreme Court's website. For a small fee, you can search for cases in your name. The law library at the Douglas County Court also has computers that you can use to search for criminal cases in your name.
We've responded by mail, said the debt is invalid, provided more information. What are our rights if they ignore/don't accept what we've sent? Can they sue, put a lien on our house, what?

You may want to act quickly. In Nebraska, funds are distributed fairly soon... Read more »
My uncle is too trustworthy and didn't ask for a receipt. I have several texts from the contractor stating that he'd be over to finish the job and we have my uncle's bank statement showing a large cash withdrawal (which he never does) and of course we still have the tree standing.... Read more »

If they get a judgment they can typically garnish 25 percent of your wages if you are not head of household, 15 percent if you are head of household, and they can garnish 100 percent of your bank account unless...

I'm refusing to pay the bill because the hospital did nothing to help me appeal the case to my insurance company. The original amount was $7k which they reduced to $3k. Is the case worth fighting?

It could depend on the basis of the denial, provisions of your plan, and other factors. One option here could be to have an attorney who handles medical claims disputes review the file.

If the judgment debtor has not submitted payment voluntarily, the next step will be to start garnishment proceedings. If you are unaware of where the debtor works, you might consider requesting a debtor's hearing to uncover the debtors occupation, assets, etc.

I suggest having your attorney contact the creditor's attorney assigned to the case. Your attorney can often negotiate a reduced pay-off amount in an effort to settle the case prior to the first hearing. Please feel free to contact me directly with questions, I may be able to help.

I suggest filing a claim in county court and get a judgment for the amount due. I often work with small businesses in handling small claims such as these. Please feel free to contact me and I can explain the initial steps to take.
