Civil lawsuits

I was playing around when I found a court case website and found out my husband was recently sued and they are going for garnishment. He was never served, and the address they served was an address that was listed on the contract as a previous address, not his current that they do indeed have. Is there anything we can do about it? Also, can they get a garnishment without him being served? I looked up the company's lawsuits and almost all were default judgements they obtained. The few people who showed up were all dismissed. I have a feeling they tend to do business this way to gain default judgements. Had he known about it, he would have appeared in court as the money was not owed. If they manage to get the garnishment we will lose everything (including our home) because we cannot possibly pay that much as a family of 7.
