my daughter received a notice of peremptory calendar...a 'civil action number' with 'style of case' as Asset vs (her name). We are trying to figure out what this is for...I suspect it may be for her federal student loan which she defaulted on. if it is would the 'style of case' say asset vs name? and if so does she need to have an attorney? it also says "parties are encouraged to bring any documents filed and not filed that you wish the judge to consider". how can we bring documents if we don't even know what this is about? I tried searching on the fulton county magistrate's web site using the civil action number that's listed but apparently this is not public information...do you know how I can get this information? do i have to have a lawyer to file for discovery?
