The papers for the civil suit is in Columbus GA and I do not live there so they are not able to serve me the papers I was told by the Sherriff department via telephone what was .on the papers.
Will they still be able to go to court and get a judgment against me concerning this matter without me being served the paper work for the civil suit? Should I make contact with the sheriff department again?
Unless you are personally served with the summons and complaint, or a copy of the summons and complaint is left with a person of suitable age and discretion at your home, then you cannot be sued in Georgia.
Hope this helps.
Thank you very much
