Not been served

Hello Cavalry PV I LLC  has been trying to serve me a notice but I'm never home to get it from the process server. I received a notice stating that something was filled on 2/24/22 and I should call for free consultation what should I do.

You can check if you're being sued here: https://www.solosuit.com/posts/what-is-status-of-my-case. Select the case search for your state and follow their instructions. In most states you can search your name to find if there is a lawsuit against you. Note: the state case searches are of varying quality. 


"Sewer service" is a real thing: the collector acts tells the court they served but they never did. Some people only find out they've been sued when their wages are garnished and they lost the lawsuit. 


The "Free consultation" thing sounds like it's from a bankruptcy attorney. Bankruptcy attorneys commonly mail people who have been sued for debt. They usually only want to help you if you want to file for bankruptcy; they usually won't help you respond to the lawsuit. 


States only allow for 14-30 days to respond to the Complaint, so looks like you might be a bit late. Here's the list of deadlines https://www.solosuit.com/posts/188. If there's already a judgment against you, meaning you lost, you can usually file a Motion to Set Aside Default Judgment and your Answer. The Motion asks the judge for a second chance to file your Answer. They're usually granted.
