    Is this legal

    Asked May 5, 2009, 04:47 PM — 42 Answers
    On Friday my son found a summons for court to my husband from a collections lawyer in are mailbox no envelope ! Is this legal? I thought you had to be surved in person or reg mail! Dose anyone No ! I live in NY .

    I found a summons in my mail box in May, This was from a lawyer who was now representing a collections company that had bought my account from 2003.
    (I thought this was paid when I filled out the Insurance forms that where provided by the credit card company when I was sick). I filled out an answer form with my side of story and filed it with the court .Sent a certified copies to the lawyer of the answer form as well as a validation of debt letter. I received my court date in the mail on the first of June , (Court date set for August ) Thought well I will get my day in Court! Well Friday I receive a letter from the Lawyers office with 3 copies of stipulation discontinuing action form . Anyone Familiar with This ? I would like more information on stipulation discontinuing action .

    Arrange to have them served. How much dose that run about?

    Do I then serve my Answer to the courts & attorney ?

    Can I request in my answer to the court & attorney that the plaintiff validate
    The debt they claim I owe.

    When Can I send out validation request?

    How dose the order of things work?

    Well Judge signed Paperwork
    Judge marks off " Affidavit of service by mail " that works for me!
    So I will have the husband send it out & fill affidavit have it notarized & wait for return receipt ,Attach to Affidavit send back to court! Then wait for court date!
    So while I wait I need to send out answer to summons (court, Lawyer ) & Validation of debt .

    Today in the mail I received
    "Affirmation in opposition to order to show cause"
    I am thinking that this is the plaintiff attorney sending
    Me notice that he opposes
    The motion to vacate judgment.
    Can anyone give me more info on his !
    Maybe a small crash course
    I am going to court on Thursday (9/17/09)

    "Affirmation in opposition to order to show cause"

    Judy , Mr. Yet !
    Would you happen to know if I have to reply to this in writing?
    Or is this just formalities in letting me know that they oppose!
    I have court on 9/17 and I received this just yesterday.
