Just got served on a Saturday here at home from a company called Tri-Cap Investment Partners, LLC. It seems like they purchased all of our credit cards (Bank One, Chase, JC Penney, etc) and want us to pay. We filed for bankruptcy in 2005 and it was dismissed 6 months later because we made too much money at the time.
After that, we neglected to pay our bills because my husband lost his job, I was out of work for a couple of months because of sickness and tried to pay the important bills (mortgage, utilities, cars) with the money we were receiving.
We have 30 days to respond to this summons. What should we do about it? Are they or can they garnish our wages?
We are really worried about this.
Any suggestions are welcomed.
Thanks.




Another poster in a different thread mentioned they were eligible for legal aid. Have you looked into that possibility?

No, I have not but I am afriad that they will think I make too much money. Which I don't, plus I have a lot of bills. I will call them tomorrow and see if I qualify for legal aid.
Thanks.

They may have a website, too. The legal aid site for Los Angeles (or maybe it's California) gives the requirements. Perhaps your local legal aid center will, too. However, I don't think they look at your bills, just income, although I could be mistaken.

I am still looking for a sample of the appropriate letter to send to respond/answer to the attorney's office. Anyone out there know of a link where I can get it?
Thanks so much.

My salary was garnished starting 10/17/07 up until 10/08. We went to court because I was exempt; I had two minor children at home. The court dismissed the case and the attorney and I made arrangements. The garnishment began a day before I received my paycheck so consequently the bills that had been sent off were either paid or returned with a $35 NSF charge. What monies do I have the right to recover?
