Re: Summons Served

Your wife has 30 days from the date she was served to answer the complaint. If she does not do anything, the Plaintiff will be entitled to a Default Judgement. As far as the calls go, your only option is to file Bankruptcy. Once you file the Automatic Stay goes into effect and prohibits your creditors from taking collection action.
