I never received a summons and I live in the state of Maryland in Prince Georgias County . The only reason I even know that I have a court date is because a company called court mediation and negotiations inc sent me a letter that they would mediate for me for $325. I want to use your services to file for me but I don’t have the summons. I did a public search with my case number and that’s how I found out I have a court case . How can I use your services if I can’t upload the summons to your website ? I have no problem paying the $47 but you require the summons or complaint as an upload but all I have is a screen shot of a public record . 

Me too!

I’m in Georgia I got this court date two days ago. No complaint no summons. What is my next step?
So I called the clerk and they said they tried to serve me and saw lights on in the house and no one answered. They say the complaint was efiled. She then told me that the judge would make the decision. What should I do next?


Since SoloSuit isn't a law firm, we're prohibited by regulation from giving you legal advice. So we can't tell you what to do. 


Generally, in Georgia, if a Complaint is filed, the defendant should file an Answer. And if there is a court date scheduled, they should show up in court. 


Here is a section of the Chapter VII, Article 70 of the Georgia Rules of Civil Procedure discuss what needs to happen for service. 


Article 70 – Judicial summons 1. A party or its representative shall be notified by a judicial summons of the date and location of a hearing or of the performance of individual procedural actions. The summons shall be deemed served on a party or its representative if it has been served on either of them or on the entities under Article 74 of this Code, or if the parties have agreed on a different, reasonable procedure for service, according to that agreement. The representative shall be obliged to notify the party of receipt of the summons. Judicial summons are also used for summoning witnesses, experts, specialists and interpreters to a court.

Generally, for proper service, the defendant needs to actually receive the Summons and Complaint. Improper service is a valid defense.
