questions & answers

Question: I have just found out that a judgement was found against me back in 2008. It is from a credit collection company. I never recieved a notice of this Judgement and I would not have know about this jugement as it has never appeared on my credit reports. This judgement lists both myslef and my husband. I never had a credit card with my husband in this state. I would have never knoiwn about this if I was not selling my poperty. He is not listed on the deed,so can the proceeds pay for the judgement. We where never notified of the judgement under the Rules of Civil procedure # 55.

Answer: The following is provided for general information only. There are various methods of alternative service (such as by publication) through which judgment debtors are not physically served with a complaint. Assuming the judgment creditor properly served you and a default judgment was properly entered, the judgment may be valid. As to collectibility, the judgment can be domesticated in Arizona if it is done properly.  To find out how the law applies to a specific situation, contact an attorney directly
