    Default Just Received a Lvnv Summons

    My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: Illinois


    I just received a summons from LVNV Funding, LLC in the last few days. It has my court date towards the end of the month. I have never received anything from this company until now.

    I have been reading some shady things about this company. What is my next step in the process or do I just show up on the date? Looks like they are filing and hoping no one shows up for a judgment.

    That depends on how the plaintiff filed the case. If it was filed as a small claims case in IL then the small claims summons form tells you in part 4 what you need to do: either you would need to show up on the return date shown on the summons or file a written appearance. The form will tell you the time and date that you either need to appear at the court or the time and date your written appearance must be filed. If you fail to show up or file the written appearance as directed you risk a default judgment against you. From what you've said it sounds like you've received a small claims court summons and have been directed to appear in court for the return date. Illinois Legal Aid has a page with information about the basics of small claims court cases. While written more for the plaintiff, the information in it is useful for defendants too. Also look at Illinois Supreme Court rules 281-289, which are the rules that apply to small claims court cases.

    If this is not a small claims court case then the procedures will be a bit different. So if you aren't in small claims court you'd need to tell us what court the case is filed and someone here may be able to give you specific information on that.

    It would also help to know how much you are being sued for, the reasons for the suit shown on the complaint form, whether or not you recognize the debt as yours, when the debt was incurred, and when you defaulted.
