they are located in Missouri

Then the circuit court has jurisdiction.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
what law are you basing your answer on?
Expert:  MIAMILAW1127 replied 1 year ago.

I am basing my answer on general jurisdictional knowledge as an attorney.

"Federal courts hear cases involving the constitutionality of a law, cases involving the laws and treaties of the U.S. ambassadors and public ministers, disputes between two or more states, admiralty law, also known as maritime law, and bankruptcy cases."

That is why I was inquiring as to whether the creditor was located in another state because it would bump the matter to federal court instead of state court. However, state courts have the jurisdiction to hear matters involved federal law.
