I have a judgemewnt against me in a municipal court for credit card debt. i recieved a order to appear before the creditors attorney to look at my assets but it was taped to my door, it wasnt in an envelope from the court nor was it certified. the communication also read this is a communication from a debt collector. Do I have to appear on this type of a request or is this another tactic by the attorney to get me in front of him? it doesnt say summons on it neither??????

If you fail to appear for your judgment debtor exam you risk being held in contempt of court and a bench warrant may be issued for your arrest. This type of service (taping the documents to a person's door) is called "personal service" and is a valid method of service.
