I just checked CCAP...

I just checked CCAP and seen there's a small claims court date on April 19th for a credit card when I was trying to make payments/settlement. I havent been served I want to know what are my rights when I go to court to avoid a judgment?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Wisconsin

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

I have been contact with the law firm since Feb. I sent in my income I was told because I am married (and not legally seperated) i needed to list my husband's income as debt as well which I did. I was waiting on a payment arraingment to be made. I even asked for a settlement for this claim however, I was told today that Im being sued as of 3/15/2018

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No that I can think of at this moment

When you go to court the judge will mediate a settlement without a judgment. Often the balance is cut and a payment plan agreed to

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.
