Being sued by Scott & Associates
You should respond to the lawsuit. You can respond directly or hire an experienced attorney, but you must do so by the date specified in the court papers.
You may have to pay a filing fee to the court when submitting your response, but low income defendants may get a waiver.
You have 2 options:
You have to file an answer with the court and try to defend yourself
Since they are open to negotiation, you should take advantage of this situation and settle debts out of court. Contact Scott & Associates as soon as possible.
You must file your response to the lawsuit, called an ‘Answer. Your answer to the court must include an admission or denial of the claim, any legal defenses, potential counterclaims, and your signature. If you have income that is exempt from garnishment, it must also be included in the answer.
