Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello I am a licensed attorney. I am here to help answer your questions. Please do not hesitate to ask for clarification
you should file an answer to the lawsuit, and claim you have the money to pay,
and at Court provide the other side the money owed, and the Judge in most cases will settle the case.
You have a right to challenge the matter, and you should do this in Court,
Hello, I'm paid up to date and the remaining balance is approximately $2000.
if you are up to date,
you would be fine,
but you need to go to court and make sure the judgment is not issued
The attorney has filed judgment for the remaining balance stating I'm 90 days late which is not true. I double my payment and now paid to date. What should I file to show proof?
you would have to go to court and ask the procedure to reopen the case, and lift the judgment,
or you can wait till the entire payment is made, and have the creditor.
file a satisfaction of judgment
and remove the judgment
Do you happen to know what this means ATP; JUDG ON STIPULATION 50 I also signed an agreement to make all payments which I have done for the last four years, this is the 1st time I fell behind for 1 month and the signed papers states I consent to a judgment if I fail to make payments. Can I fix this.
That you signed a stipulation stating that you agree to a judgment
if you miss one or any payments or are late, you agreed to give them the right to an automatic judgment
I'm not due again until August should I still pay or ask the attorney could they vacate the judgment or try to ask the court to re-open the case. Do I even have the option to ask the court?
You should continue to pay, and go to the court and see if they have a process to reopen the judgment,
You can ask to file an Order to Show Cause, or motion to lift or vacate the Judgment
There should be some procedure allowing you to reopen the matter,
if not contact the creditor and they may remove it.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask.
If satisfied please provide us with positive feedback, thank you
