I received a summons from a lawyer regarding a credit card debt. The summons was served on me on April 14 and I plan to file my answer tomorrow - which is within the 30 day period to answer.
My problem is that I just went online to see the status of my case, and it says that the summons was served on April 7. The case still shows as being active, which I assume means no judgment has yet been granted.
Will the court believe me that I was not served until April 14? Can I still file my answer? I plan to be there first thing in the morning tomorrow.
