Discover Bank/CC is suing me. We already went to court once where their lawyer, before court went into session, tried to get me to agree I owe the debt and make a deal for repayment. I asked for proof I owe it. He showed me 3 copies of statements that showed nothing other than the past due amount.... View More
If you are unwilling to enter into a payment arrangement and cannot afford a lawyer, you can spend the next 4 months learning everything you can about lawyering because you'll be representing yourself. There are three options: agree to a payment plan, consent to a judgment, or defend the lawsuit.
Receiving a 1099-C for a debt that was forgiven or canceled, especially one from over a decade ago, can be distressing, particularly when on a fixed income. The IRS considers forgiven debt as income, which can indeed lead to a significant tax liability. However, there are steps you can take to...View More
I do not remember ever doing one with them and said it was turned over to collections in 2019. They said it is for over $900 and if i do not pay it they will have me served and i will have to go to court and it will be well over $4000 then. I tried looking company that called up online with no... View More
You might ask the collection outfit to send you a copy of your alleged check loan. SOL on worthless check criminal charge has passed. If you ever acknowledged the debt, then 6 year SOL for suing starts then. If sued, make a sworn denial to be filed at Court and served. You will need an...View More
We are a co-defendant in a garnishment. Plaintiff states that we are the co-defendant's employer. The defendant is a consultant (1099 employee) and we do not garnish wages for consultants. We want to get dismissed from this lawsuit without the need to hire an attorney.
You have indicated you are a co-defendant in a garnishment. I am not clear on what you mean. I will assume that you are not a defendant - but rather you received a garnishment in regard to party that had a judgment entered against them.
If that is the case, you need to respond to the...View More
Depending on the amount owed, this would probably be a small claim in general sessions court. There are civil warrants available online that you can fill out and file with the clerk's office at the county courthouse. A clerk can also walk you through how to complete the paperwork. Although,...View More
Hire an experienced collection attorney to either pursue it or forget about it. Apparently you do not know anything about the judgment debtor's financial situation, which you need to even to consider the collection process.
I was sued by Midland Funding in Hawkins County, Tennessee, and a lien was placed against my home. I paid the debt to Midland Funding in September 2021 and was told then that the lien would be removed. Almost 2.5 years later and getting close to closing (selling home) and am told that there is a... View More
There is not much here. If the judgment lien is not removed there is a small monetary penalty available. Did you go to Court? Apparently not, and that was a mistake. Slander of title would be worth little with no real damages. Hire an attorney to get the lien removed, but do not expect...View More
Monroe County, TN I am being sued by Discover Bank. I wasn't given anything except a summons and 3 copies of copies of statements with nothing on them besides amount owed, fees, charges, and interest. I had asked for documentation when contacted about the debt and hadn't gotten it. The... View More
You probably need to file a sworn denial before Court. Otherwise you will lose. You might want to hire an attorney to represent you. Most credit card cases are not tried, but if you owe then you might get a compromise.

Hire an attorney to prepare for a preliminary hearing. If an illegal stop, then a Motion To Suppress may be needed. Be ready to pay off that cost , and all others, at Court. Maybe you can get the new charge dismissed.
Money was given before signing an agreement that's when we were told she wanted the title to the car but the title is on mine and someone else name. We aren't behind and now they are recalled immediately to be paid in 10 days

The judgement was from a landlord because she broke a lease and the judgement was for 9K. This was five years ago. She just got a car so she can drive her child to where they need to go and it was taken. The car is only worth about 2K. That said, if she gets another car, can that take that one as... View More
I made a deal with Nathan & Nathan for 3 installments in return for them to settle the debt and drop the judgement. Only papers were served, no judgement was awarded yet. So I'm wondering if when I show up to court on the date in my served papers if judges (ever do or can) still lower the... View More

If it is a Civil Warrant for General Sessions Court, then a VOP is not an issue. However once a Judgment for money is entered, post-judgment asset discovery is a possibility where contempt of Court is a possibility. Nonpayment of Court Costs can affect your Licenses. The Court Clerk is after...View More
2-fold issue. I sold a car to Carvana 5/16/21 — they failed to register it to the new owner.
