If you’ve been served with a lawsuit by your creditor or other parties that own your debt, do not ignore it! This also includes business and contract dispute lawsuits. If you choose to do so, or if you try to represent yourself in court without a debt defense lawyer, a default judgement or a final judgment in favor of the creditor is likely.
If this happens, you are vulnerable to collection tactics that your creditor is legally allowed to employ. These tactics can include garnishment of your bank account, post judgment discovery or a receiver being appointed over your assets. For best results, a default judgement must be avoided at all costs. Those who choose to ignore their debt lawsuit will most likely receive a default judgement without ever having knowledge of it.
