Reasons for Credit Card Lawsuits
If you owe the credit card company, it is entitled to sue you in pursuit
of recovering the money that you owe. It can file a lawsuit if you break
the terms of the contract that you agreed to when you originally signed
up for the credit card. By falling behind on payments or failing to make
payments altogether, you violate the agreement, and the credit card company
has the right to sue you.
If you do not respond, the credit card company can obtain a default judgment.
The consequences of a default judgment include, but are not limited to,
wage garnishment, bank execution, and liens on real property. If you are
sued for delinquent credit card debt, contact The Woods Law Firm, LLC
immediately for an evaluation of your specific case.
