Is the creditor also located in the State of Missouri?
Then the circuit court has jurisdiction.
I am basing my answer on general jurisdictional knowledge as an attorney.
"Federal courts hear cases involving the constitutionality of a law, cases involving the laws and treaties of the U.S. ambassadors and public ministers, disputes between two or more states, admiralty law, also known as maritime law, and bankruptcy cases."
That is why I was inquiring as to whether the creditor was located in another state because it would bump the matter to federal court instead of state court. However, state courts have the jurisdiction to hear matters involved federal law.
