I do not know what "Adv Fin amt" is, but you need to be concerned with what amount you are being sued for as shown on the Civil Warrant. You might talk to the lawyer which sued you, which should also be on the Warrant. But be careful of what you say and require a paid in full receipt...Read more »

As far as I know all SOLs run in years not days. There are just a few 6 month SOLs. These include both criminal charges and civil causes of actions. What is your question?

Yes, you can file suit for Breach of Contract in General Sessions Court of the County of the Defendant's residence. Circuit and Chancery Courts are also available. But I recommend hiring a collection attorney after you get a Judgment.
