Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I found out recently that on 2/7/2013 a judgement was made against me in a civil suit in Ma w/o me knowing I was being sued. I am out of the country but will be able to appeak on Tuesday. How long does the plaintiff have to attempt to garnish funds from my bank account and what is the process that it needs to go through?
Also, since I am out of the country, I wanted to ask my parents to file the appeal for me. How do I go about doing this? Thanks, Matt
Thank you very much for this. I will give you a high rating and tip. However, I have 2 quick follow-up questions:
1. Can I send this document in first class or online or do I actually have to go to the courthouse?
2. Will filing this motion stop them from garnering my wages in the meantime, like an appeal would?
