Hello I am a licensed attorney here to help you with your question, please review my response and do not hesitate to ask for clarification
You can appeal the decision, however in most cases, if you did not appear for the lawsuit, the attorney
most likely added interest, and attorney fees to the case
If you filed a bankruptcy that would eliminate the entire judgment awed to them, and may be cheaper than an appeal
but what does a bankrupcy do to my credit it is getting better
in todays economy would the court concider this payment fair how can I get before the judge to hear my case?
A bankruptcy would hurt your credit, however if you have a judgment, and your credit is below 600, a bankruptcy would only hurt it a little, but would help in the long run
You can go to the court where the original lawsuit was started and try to file a motion to reopen if you failed to appear,
by claiming you were never served,
These cases are difficult to do, and costly
is there a form to fill out or a place to get the right way to do this
You have to go to the original court where the lawsuit was decided and ask the clerk if they have forms to reopen a case,
they should tell you their,
You have to have a valid excuse, such as never being served etc. it can't be that their amount is too high,
ok thank you I'll try this first and get back to you please send me your contact info
