This is an amendment to my prior question in regard to what
This is an amendment to my prior question in regard to what options I have as a defendant in a small claims judgment where the plaintiff did not appear and a default judgment was issued. The plaintiff has made a motion to remove the default judgment. The hearing of this motion is scheduled for 5/18/2016. Is there anything that I can do to challenge this motion and cancel this hearing date before 5/18/2016. His reason for making the motion is that "(he) mixed up (his) date at trial ...".Thank you.Robert Holbrook
We just got a judgment against us and we have to pay the other
We just got a judgment against us and we have to pay the other side's legal fees. We're not sure if we're going to appeal or not yet. We are south represented litigants. If we can't pay what are the possible outcomes. Can they put us in jail? Can they put a lien on our property? Can a dock are wages? How would this happen? Would we appear in front of a judge? If we have to file bankruptcy as a result of not getting the damages we asked for are we still liable to pay the other sides costs? Would filing bankruptcy prevent them from putting a lien on some of our property or will they go after everything? How long do we have to pay?

"This is for Ely only" State is NJ. If the judgement is against me, what happens next? How long does it normally take for judgement to be entered? Generally speaking, after the judgement, do these companies negotiate on any settlement instead of going after wage garnishment, bank account etc? And if agreed, do they generally remove the judgement? For example, if I agree to a payment plan for 3 years, will they remove the judgement on day 1 or a day after 3 years?

Dear Sir/Madam:I studied in USA from 1989-96 and at the time when I was leaving; I didn't care of some cheques which I wrote and they turned into bad cheques; as I am planning to visit USA again; I checked my credit history and saw that I had some cases registered against me for the same and all of them (I believe) have been closed except one. I want to ensure that I take care of this outstanding cheque or any other(s). So, I shouldn't have any issue in visiting USA. I seek your advice in doing the same. Hoping to hear from you at the earliest. Thanking you,Regards,Mumtaz Khan
