Information subpoena

Ask a Lawyer

Question

Country: United States of America
State: New Jersey

I had a vehicle repossessed, it was re-sold and I now have a judgment against me for the balance. Recently I received a letter requesting personal information called an "Information Subpoena". Is there a way to avoid giving my personal information? I'm on welfare now and not working. Will this affect my benefits?

Answer

You can just not answer but they may then go to court and get an order; you could answer that you indeed have no assets etc.--your disability is normally protected...
