What Happens If You Don't Answer A Lawsuit

Full Video Transcript

Unfortunately, it's all too common today, that defendants just don't show up to court when sued by their credit card companies for failure to make payments. It doesn't matter if there's a good reason for not paying, like being out of work and not having any income. If you don't show up to court, at some point, a default judgment will be obtained against you and the creditor can pursue collection against you on the money judgment. Also, the unpaid judgment will appear as a negative on your credit report. For more information about answering a lawsuit, contact an attorney in your area today.
