Asked May 5, 2009, 05:47 PM
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 .
