Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Can I still be served in NC through Texas courts?
If you are being sued for a debt you incurred, then the creditor will have to come to your state and sue you there in order to get personal jurisdiction over you. However if you were to return to the state and they served you while you were there, then you could be compelled to return and defend the case.
If they mail you a summons in another state, then that is not considered proper legal service and you would not be compelled to return to court in the other state.
