If you are served with a Court of Common Pleas Complaint, you have only 20 days to file a written response with the Court. Many consumers are easily confused because there may be an arbitration date listed in the papers, and they think no answer is required. Do not be fooled!
If you do not timely file a response to the complaint with the court, in a legally sufficient manner, the creditor can obtain a default judgment and there will be no arbitration. Once a judgment is obtained a creditor may be able to garnish bank accounts and seize other property.
