Did they have the right to never send it to me? This c.c. bill and original colections letters were not even going to the right address. I never recieved the original summons by the server for the law firm. I found out about by a letter that came from an lawyer that wanted me to hire them about 2 weeks before the court date. I had to track down who was suing me by calling the court house. The first time I contacted them I told them I wanted vertification sent to me and the I had never recieved the summons. They delayed the court date. Now I still have not received it, know that they have it and they say they don't have to send me a copy.

 

They responded to me never being served by having me served at work. I work in an elementary school...not cool!

They should have sent it but often don't

the judge therefore will now order compliance to make sure it is remedied

Does that mean that they have to let me look at it on Monday or the case has to be delayed so I have time to look at it? Should the summons have had more info then the court date and petition for summons? That is all I got and the petition is obviously a photo copy.
Lawyer: INFOLAWYER, Attorney replied 8 years ago
They have to give to time to review it before it proceeds.

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.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
