Here are answer forms. She needs to file a response here and make them prove up the debt.

http://www.jdsupra.com/legalnews/texas-defendants-original-answer-af-82434/

If they are able to get a judgment they can levy on her bank accounts.So she would want to get funds out of her name.Any non exempt assets here like jet ski, boat, rv, and trailer can be seized and sold.

But file the answer here and see if she can negotiate something she can afford as far as payments.These are her next steps.

I appreciate the chance to help you today.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.
