Yea dh is at work like normal and some guy called me and me gave me a number for him to call back and a case number and said the company that told him to call dh. They said he has 2 hours to call him back or they are putting him as a failed court date but he wouldn't tell me why he has to go. Has anyone herd of this company?? Howard Associates? If so can someone please help. I'm going anon because i feel this is a Private family thing, I just need to vent/ get advice. Do you guys think he has jury dutie? or is that completely different?

 

 

EDITED::::

Okay so dh came home last night and I asked him what happened and why does he have to go to court, he says because YEARS ago he was dating this one girl named Ashley and when he left for basic training she had access to his bank account and bought herself an engagement ring (she was crazy) and told him they were in engaged when they broke up he asked for it back and she said she didn't have it, that she sold it to get an abortion (dh didn't even know she was pregnant and that's crazy because how could she gotten pregnant while he was gone??) well he made a deal with k jewelers last night I guess and he said we only need to give them $900 then they will drop it. The crazy thing about this whole thing we have been paying them off and we told them our problem with our bank and dh told me that they will lay low for awhile until we got it all ok again then they come out of no where and told him he had to go to court? I told him he needs to make her pay for it but he doesn't even know where she's living now. I said well you know where her dad is living why don't we take a ride down there and ask her parent's where she's at now. He said because he thinks they will lie about it. idk this whole thing is stupid and I'd love to sue the sh*t outta her. Can we sue her if we find her??

Contact the county court system, they should have info on whether he is legally obligated to appear in court.

Sounds like bullshit to me. They don't give court papers over the phone

No one calls you to show up to court except maybe your own lawyer.

I had the same call today for my husband!!!! But they called MY work line and MY brother! We aren't behind on anything so it's not a bill thing? Oddly they didn't call our home number ... My husband called the number they left (it came up unlisted) and it was a FAX machine number.

He must receive an official court notice by mail or by a person. If he doesn't get one he is not served. Of not served he absolutely doesn't have to appear!

There are a lot of Howard and Associates, but none of them are law offices or anything to do with court.

 A court summons (here anyway) is delivered by a police officer.

First, if he had to appear in court, there would have been a summons brought to your house.

Second, it sounds like a bill collector being a dickhead.
