Customer Question

I accessed the file that is from an attorney on behalf of a credit card company (that my daughter stopped paying on a year ago.)I can prepare the response, but would it be best for me to respond with a request to produce documents to have them prove this is her debt?She is unable to pay this debt, perhaps she could make payments. Will the judge help make payment arrangement. Or is there a way to explain that she is indigent currently and unable to repay this debt? She doesn't own anything.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
