What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Nevada
In January I received a demand letter from an attorney stating I owed monies to a leasing company for a business I had owned and that I was named as a Personal Guarantor. I responded within two weeks of the date on this demand letter. Five months later I found paperwork flying around at the side of my home that looked like a complaint filed with the Las Vegas Township Justice Court but without any signatures except for this attorneys. Being I was never served I did not believe it was legitimate but still responded to the address of the attorney on the complaint, sending it Priority Mail to have a record of its receipt. In early September I noticed monies missing from my checking account stating it was garnishment. The following day I received in the regular mail paperwork stating a Default Judgment was granted on this case with the leasing company.
I believe I need to file a motion with the Las Vegas Township Justice Court to have this default judgment reversed and be given the opportunity to defend myself. At no time would I ever have personally guaranteed anything, this company was a LLC. What steps do I need to take to correct this judgment and what terminology should I use? How could this happen without ever being served?What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
