If you have recently found out that a credit card company or debt buyer is suing you, you may feel hopeless. You may feel that the lawsuit is unwinnable and that there is nothing that you can do. The good news is that this is not necessarily the case.
The Burden of Proof
It is common for debt collectors to keep shoddy records. This is excellent for you as the Defendant in the lawsuit because you do not have the burden of proof in the case. Some debt collectors have nothing more than a computer screen snapshot claiming that a balance is owed. Likewise, original credit card creditors do not always preserve account statements. Sometimes they are discarded as matter of routine.
Credit Card Lawsuits – What Will Happen?
It depends on what you do. If you do nothing, you will lose the case without ever making the creditor satisfy its burden of proof. This is not a good idea. There is no reason to ignore the lawsuit. You may be considering representing yourself but you are not sure of how to go about it. This is also not a good idea. It has been our experience that the majority of people who defend their own lawsuits lose them quite quickly.
