What defenses do I have to a credit card lawsuit?
Each case is different and it is important to capitalize on the defense
tactics that will maximize your chances of success.
Some of the most effective defenses include:
Statute of limitations: In short, the debt is too old to be enforced. If the credit card company
does not file the lawsuit in the timeframe specified by Georgia law, the
lawsuit against you may be dismissed.
Improper service of the summons & complaint: Companies are required to abide by certain requirements when delivering
notice of a lawsuit. Failure to do so can work in your favor.
Fraudulent credit card charges: If your debt stems from identity theft or a stolen credit card, the lawsuit
does not apply.
Payment of the credit card account: One of the simplest defenses, simply paying your debt in part or in full
is a sure way to get the credit card company off your case.
These defenses and others have proven helpful time and again in the event
of credit card lawsuits. When you first receive notice of the lawsuit,
remain calm and seek legal counsel immediately. Schuyler Elliot &
Associates, Inc. offers 24/7 availability to Atlanta residents in need
