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.
