What Should I Do If I Receive a Summons From A Collection Agency?

If you receive a summons from a collection agency, you have two options: respond or do not respond. If you do not respond, you will get a default judgment against you. This opens you up for garnishments or liens on your property. The better option is to respond to the complaint filed against you. This will give you the opportunity to defend yourself and/or negotiate a settlement. You only have a certain amount of time to respond to the summons, so you must do so in a timely manner. The time limit that you have should be listed on your summons, it is usually between 21 and 30 days.
