TD bank is suing me for $1750 for my target card. I ran into financial hardships and was unable to pay my card and it got closed. I lived in florida for 4 months and then moved back to indiana. They sued me in Florida in February 2018. I have not lived in Florida since August of 2017.
I was not even aware of the court case. I only found out about it because I received a solicitation letter from a law firm who reviews court records to find potential customers. The court documents I was able to view online said I can request a change of venue 7 days before court date in writing. But, I don't have enough time now to mail one because the court date is 6 days from now. I do have the name of the lawyer they are using. Anyone have advice?
I am going to call a volunteer lawyer in florida tomorrow. Don't they have to serve me papers or at least notify me I am being sued? I am just lucky I found out about it. The judgment will be a default against me because I can not be there for the court meeting. So, I guess I will have to call the lawyer and see what kind of settlement they are willing to offer or just file bankruptcy.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
