Hello my name is***** am currently going through an issue with an ex-boyfriend of mine. He has taken me to small claims
court for a "personal loan
" of 1,485.18 (with no signed documentation) in New York State. Unfortunately I was unable to make the date last august, due to prior court engagements for a dwi. I had my lawyer talk to the plaintiff (ex-boyfriend) and they talked down the money to 1,000 dollars. I had thirty days to pay it. My boyfriend then tried to pay the 1,000 to the plaintiff and he would not accept because I wasn't the one communicating with him. Which I feel very uncomfortable doing because this feel likes harassment
. After that i didn't do anything further and let the matter go. A few months later I received a letter to my parents house from the plaintiff - he is a lawyer working at his dads firm/ where the letter came from. In the enclosed letter (subpoena
) the plaintiff wrote that the law firm demanded me to come there and be put under oath to pay him back. I was unable to go to them due to work, and quite frankly do not want to go at all. I feel pressured and it is held at his law firm in an unjust bias situation. I want to vacate and would much rather take this back into an official courtroom. rather than having to call his office and speaking with the plaintiff over the whole legal adjustments. Do you have any advice you can give me of this situation? please
JA: OK. The Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: I have
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Lawyer should know?
Customer: He is taking me to court for gifts we both put our names on the card for a trip of Florida he took me on, and all the dinners he took me out to.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
