A truck driving school in Indiana claims my husband owes them

Customer Question

A truck driving school in Indiana claims my husband owes them for the school and lots of other fees equaling about $8,000 because he didn't complete a year of working for a particular company. He was told he'd earn at least $800/wk after attending this school and then working for this particular company, but instead he made about $350/wk. He left the company in 2004, so the "debt" is over 5 years old at this point. They found him here in Kansas and sent (via USPS) him a summons to appear in an Indiana court on 8/18 - which is impossible. We need to have a continuance issued while we figure out how to fight this, but cannot reach the referral services listed in the summons paperwork. Assuming we need an Indiana attorney, we don't know where to turn. If they garnish his wages, it will kill us financially, as we have struggled to get on our feet after 5 years of little to no work living in Michigan. (He went to the school in Indiana while we lived in Michigan)
