    Default Complaint for Interpleader Filed but Not Served on the Defendant

    My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: Miami Florida

    Good morning experts and thank you for any time and suggestions in this question.

    I just found out I have a complaint against me. Its a complaint for interpleader.

    Few years back I had a medical procedure in hospital and was and have been unable to pay that bill. I think My out of pocket expense was 7500, and I made payments for 6 months with what I could afford. The hospital sent the account to collections because my payments werent high enough so I stopped making payment and times and work got harder.

    I am now disabled, unable to work, and I just received a letter from a mediator informing me of this complaint for interpleader against me. I was never served any papers, mailed anything for court, nothing. If I had not gotten the letter from mediator I would never have known about the complaint.

    So what do I do and how would I respond? I dont want a judgement against me but I dont even makes ends meet now on my monthly check.

    Odds are the lawsuit is in the hands of a process server, but has not yet made its way to you.

    When you are sued, you need to decide if you are going to appear and defend, or if you are going to default and deal with the consequences of a default judgment. You also have the option of trying to negotiate a settlement of the debt, or filing for bankruptcy protection.
