I have been served a civil summons by Forsyth County, NC, from Capital One Bank for non-payment of a credit card. I need to respond ASAP but have been unable to find the form to do so. Contacting the court system itself was no help. Please guide me to an appropriate response form for this issue. Thanks
Country relating to Question: United States
State (if USA): North Carolina
Calling the court locally, speaking with a lawyer (who is only in it for the money - which I obviously don't have), and searching on-line. Time is running out quickly and I need help.
