Steve, i recieved a summons in regards to Chase bank: I contacted the law offfice that sent it to me and made arrangements to make payments on the debt owed, they are asking me for bills and checks stubs and bank information do i have to disclose that information to them? Also do i still reply to the court in regards to the summons since i made payment arrangements??
I am not a lawyer. I don’t even play one on television.
For specific legal advice you need to consult with an attorney that is licensed in your state.
What I can do is take a guess that what you have is a summons to appear in court and a second document to produce specific information. While there may be ways to temporarily delay that request, I bet you are going to be ordered to deliver it at some point as this moves forward.
It may not be too late to negotiate a settlement of that debt if you have cash on hand. Depending on your bigger situation you may want to consider meeting with a local bankruptcy attorney and see if bankruptcy is right for you. You can click here to find a local bankruptcy attorney.
A consumer bankruptcy may be appropriate if you are unable to reach a settlement agreement with the creditor and you want to stop the suit and avoid a judgment or possible wage garnishments.
Time is of the essence here so consult with a bankruptcy attorney or meet with a local attorney quickly to decide how to best respond.
