Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello. My name is***** will be happy to answer your question.I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.
Did the bank sue you regarding your mechanic's lien?
Please provide me with more details about the situation.
Thank you for your follow up.
Please note, I cannot comment on your specific situation, as this services is only limited to general information and for any legal advice / legal service you should contact your local attorney.
Why didn't you appear in court on Monday by yourself and asked the judge to give you time to find a local attorney?
What is the amount of your lien?
Corporation cannot ask for an attorney to be appointed in a civil case, but a corporate officer can appear without attorney and ask the judge for time extension to hire an attorney.
Unfortunately, if the litigant fails to appear a default would be entered against the litigant, meaning that the other side would obtain any relief they are seeking, however, it might be possible to hire an experienced local attorney and have this attorney to file a motion to vacate default order due to excusable neglect, however, the time is of the essence in similar situation, so it is important to hire an experienced local attorney asap before the decision if final and enforced.
I wish you the best of luck!
