Sample Notice of Appearance for Debt Litigation

The notice of appearance lets the court know that the defendant will be active in the credit card lawsuit, and he or she will appear in court. It helps the defendant gain the right to receive every single document, motion and order filed by the plaintiff and the court. The notice of appearance informs the collection agency’s attorney that the consumer will actively participate in the debt lawsuit, and this will show them just how serious the defendant is. Collection attorneys don’t like this and see it as a sign that the defendant really means business.

Below is an example of what the notice to appear should look like.
