My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: Georgia
I recently found out that a debt incurred in 2000 was granted a judgement against me in 2008. It is my understanding that this is outside of the statute of limitations in Georgia, however it was granted without my knowlegde and I was not represented at the hearing. I recently received a Certification of Service of Garnishment of Defendant and have about 30 days to answer. I need any advice on handling as if push comes to shove I will have to file bankruptcy because there is no way I can afford 25% of my gross being garnished in a single income household.
