What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Texas
I received a notice in my mail box that I have a certified letter from the Sheriff of the county where I live. The only things that I can think of that I may have done wrong are not paying of medical/ambulance bills (trying to get them to bill my correct insurance). I accidently max'ed out my charge card (two days ago) and have already made the payment to bring it back under the max. I tried to do some volunteer work at the County Juvinille Corrections Center back this Spring. I ran into some health problems that wouldn't let me continue, but was notified after I had stopped volunteering that when I did my background check and fingerprinting, my fingerprints didn't take and needed to come back in. I called in and explained I was done volunteering and was told that I was fine.
My house is in my husband's name. Our family car is in my husband's name. So I don't think it is anything to do with those things.
I have a former close friend who would do anything to make my life more difficult so I am scared that she did something wrong and gave my information. I am still having health (and money) issues so I am scared to go get the letter and be on the hook for something that I didn't do.
My logical brain is that if it is really that important, the Sheriff's office has my address and can come find me and/or talk to me.
If I go pick up the letter (or have someone go pick up the letter for me) am I on any legal hook? Does anyone know what type of matter this might be?
