Hi, Shirley, I was in the middle of revising my Answer, but could not post it because you had read the previous version. Here is the edited version. I had not seen your first questions in the previous "Reply" box,
1. Regarding the documents which puport to have your signature and which were Notarized, find the Notary Public who allegedly Notarized your signature and bring her in as a witness. To be on the safe side, serve a Subpoena on her. Since a Subpoena is like a Court Order, if the Notary refuses or fails to come in to testify, they can be held in Contempt of Court.
The Subpoena will serve a dual purpose - First, it will require the Notary Public to make available to you for inspection the Notary Public's Log Book(s) and other records well in advance of the trial date so that you can formulate the questions you want to ask the Notary and the Plaintiff, and you will be able to verify the credentials of the Notary Public with the Department of State and that they were in good standing on the date they claim that your signature was Notarized, and check other people whose signature the Notary Public claims to have Notarized. The second date on the Subpoena will require the Notary Public to appear in Court the date of the trial with all log books, records, etc. and to testify. I have the wording below. When you get the Subpoena, I will help you fill it out,
On the Subpoena, right after it states, "You are Ordered to appear on the ______ day of May in Court Room _________ , etc. , then it says
"...and to bring with you ________ " In the blank space list what you want them to bring. One of these things is the "Log Book" all Notaries Public are required to maintain. They are required to list the date they Notarized a signature, the name of the individual, the form of identification they showed the Notary as proof of their identity, where the document was signed and the signature Notarized, etc. They are required to keep this by law, so there is no getting around it. If that Notary Public claims to have Notarized your signature, they should have all your information logged in their log book. Take a look at the date on the Notarized document and if it was allegedly signed, for example, "July 8, 1999", then on the Subpoena make sure you specify that the log book(s) containing records of Notarized signatures for the dates January 1, 1999 through and including December 31, 1999 should be brought in. But, you need to see these well in advance so that you can be prepared. Get the Subpoena and when you fill it out, put in two dates - The first date should be as soon as possible and next to that date, write in
"To make available for inspection on the 21st day of March 2013 at ________ address, at ________ (AM) (PM), all log books, files, documents, and all other official and unofficial records maintained for the entry of information of the official acts of ___________________ , a Notary Public, for the period January 1, 1999 through and including December 31, 1999, inclusive"
2. If the bank account belongs to a separate corporation which is totally unrelated to the one being sued and is unrelated to the lawsuit itself, then the Plaintiff has no right to put a lien on it, or attach any of its assets to satisfy any judgment, simply because you are a signatory on the corporation's bank account.
However, if you have an ownership interest in the corporation, remember what I said in one of my previous Answers, if the Plaintiff obtains a judgment against you and thereafter takes your deposition to get information about your assets, where they are, what they consist of, etc., then your percentage ownership interest would be subject to execution by the Plaintiff to satisfy his judgment.
But simply being a signatory on the other corporation's bank account without more, will not subject the corporation's assets to execution by the Plaintiff/Judgment Creditor,
Please let me know if there is anything else you need or you think of anything else that this Plaintiff may want to take from you,
