Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply,but rest assured, I am working on your question.
The only way to know for sure would be to request a breakdown of the amount claimed, but my guess is that there were court costs and possibly attorney fees added into the judgment so as to increase it. And then when you compound interest for 10 years, it can add up pretty quickly..
