Legal Question in Credit and Debt Law in Florida

Apparently a debtor of mine has scheduled a telephonic hearing regarding my debt but I have not been given ANY NOTICE from the County Circuit Court and have not been SERVED ANY PAPERS to attend this hearing. Do I have to attend if I have not been notified by the Court?

Hello. The law requires that you receive notice of all hearings.

If the hearing goes on without you there, you may have a hard time later reversing any order issued by the judge.
