Recently a client came up to me to remove an old judgement item from his credit report. The judgement was an old car finance that he had opened when he lived in Rhode island. After my client opened an account with this finance he needed to go back to his country, so he gave back the car to the bank in 2007 and was informed that he didn't owe them any amount forward. At the time the account was at the balance of $5000.00. After 8 years he came back to America and moved to Massachusetts, and was notified that he has been sued in 2012 regarding this matter, and now the balance he owns is $15,000.00. This case was not served property and does not have enough jurisdiction. Now, the court in Rhode island is trying to take 25% of his growth payment every week until he pays off the debt.
Do they have the right to take away money from Massachusetts employee and can this case be dismissed and voided ?
Please provide me with as much information with the law. I will be calling the attorney in Rhode Island and need as much argument as I can to solve this matter.
