Re: Preventing being summoned before filing

Yes, I think I need to shop around a little. I'd like to go with this office because of a recommendation. It's 1800 including the filing fee, but I think there are probably cheaper options still.
About being notified first, I have seen people on this board who were not notified. Just had their accounts frozen, in order to prevent having the debtor remove funds prior. Curious to know what the norm is.
I'm going to try buy some time by calling to request they send me a verification letter. By law they have to wait at least 30 days before attempting to collect the debt. Just don't know if they care to follow those regulations.
