Well... don't know what to say. The statute of limitations in TN is quite long, if I recall right. Are you sure this is what it is for? I'm saying, old ass things can bite you in the ass.
Anyhow, if you don't own a home or any assets getting sued aint no big deal. As long as you don't mind changing jobs everytime they send over a write of garnishment hehe
SOL in TN is 6 yrs and garnishment of wages is 75%. I looked that up lastnight when I was replying to you.
And yes the hospital is what its for I have the summons right in front of me.
Summon Debra XXXXXXX
To appear before the General Sessins Court of Macon County, TN on XXXXXXX
Civil action brought by ___________ Hospital for agreement due and unpaid in the amount of 2612.70 plus court costs, private process server fees, prejudgement interest and attorney's fees for which the plaintiff sues as evidenced by a sworn account here to the court shown.
The problem I have is it's just my husbands income now.(Disability) I need to contact Legal Aide cause I dont know if it will be a judgement on me, or if they drag him into it too cause we are married.
If it's just on me, then I can list my truck under the personal property exemption but that only covers up to 4,000.
Now if they do this as a household we will end up loosing some shit, tv, computers, and a truck (both have systems). I dont believe they can garnish from Disability but I dont know for sure.
I am sick of having to start over I have had to do so three damn times now, tornado, getting hurt & losing my job and selling everything of value just to get by, and apartment fire. I be damned if I'm gonna loose my shit to a hospital bill!
And I'm not going to jail over a damn bill either!!!
