Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello and thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am an expert here and I look forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification.
Is there a specific question I could assist you with?
You will have to file a Motion for Continuance. Let me see if I can find a form for that online.
You will need to file it ASAP and then appear at the regularly scheduled time to argue it. Usually if you are looking for an attorney and have an appointment set the court will grant the continuance.
The form is at http://www.law.siu.edu/selfhelp/info/forms/continue.pdf
Likely the judge will deny it and you lose the hraing/case.
They can try to seize assets, wait until you go back to work and then garnish wages, etc.
No, not likely. You would have a period of time before it becomes a final judgment.
Usually 10-30 days depending on the court.
You can object to the service on a minor but you still have to file a motion and appear to do that and then they just re-serve you.
You're very welcome.
Best wishes to you on this and please don't forget to leave a Positive Rating so I get credit for my work.
