I have a NJ s-corporation and was working with a vendor for certain services. They have misrepresented a service and kept us billing 4 years incorrectly. Anyhow 2 years back, we owed then $30,000, and now I realized that they were billing us incorrectly, so basically we shouldn't owe them more than $8K. They've filed a compliant in NJ supreme court for debt collection. In complaint they have put my name instead of naming company as defendant. I need to answer to this compliant, but in first response, I want them to correctly address the compliant in name of company not personally myself. Is that make sense or should I start with a defense? I need help to draft the answer as well, I like to represent myself.
I didn't sign any personal guarantee, I signed as a director for company. The service agreement has company legal name. They have put my name as primary defendant t/a DBA name, not even company legal name as used in the agreement.
I use a alternate name same as our website name along with legal company name. But in agreement, the DBA name was not even mentioned, it has only company legal name.
Do I have to attach, service agreement along with it? Which form do I need to fill out as the link you gave me?
Ok, I got that, but I didn't get which option to choose on Form A:
Also, do I still need to answer compliant or just file the motion.
The agreement, I have with vendor is marked confidential, can I still attached with motion?
