If you do not address this lawsuit by Portfolio Recovery Associates, the debt collector could win the case by default, also known as a default judgment, which could result in your wages being garnished or bank accounts seized. If the debt collector wins the case by default, they can make your employer withhold up to 25 percent of your paycheck.
You must file a written response with the court, in the proper legal format, within 30 days after you are served. If you choose to represent yourself, you can obtain the forms in the civil clerk's office at the courthouse where your case was filed.
If you are representing yourself, be careful. You will likely receive a document in the mail titled "Request for Admissions" as well as Requests for Production of Documents and Interrogatories. If you do not respond to this paperwork in time, the debt collector will file a motion forcing you to respond, and you may lose your case.
While we cannot guarantee any specific outcomes, having a lawyer representing you can significantly change the way plaintiff debt collectors approach your case. In a small debt case, they may dismiss the case entirely rather than go to the trouble of dealing with an attorney. In a larger debt case, they may quickly accept a low settlement and payment plan.
If you have been sued by Portfolio Recovery Associates, please contact Attorney Adam Hollander-Urbach, Esq. immediately.
