Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Welcome to Just Answer! My name is***** give me a few minutes to review your inquiry. Thank you for your patience.
We are not permitted to represent JA's customers or to refer any particular attorney to them. However, there are several ways to get this removed off your credit. The first is to file a dispute with the credit bureaus using a dispute letter such as this one.
if that does not work, then you can sue the hospital in a declaratory judgment action and ask for a court order that states that you have no or minimal liability for the bill since your never received any actual medical treatment from there. Here is the law that applies. Here is a sample DJ petition for you to use as a go-by to see how it works. If the court rules in your favor, then you can send a certified copy of the court's order to the credit bureaus to have your credit cleaned accordingly.
