Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice.

(You may also be offered a phone call, but those don’t come from me and are offered by the website and you are under no obligation to accept.)

YES, unless the following occurs:

1) Debt is paid (as you say so) and

2) The Plaintiff issues a (1) formal release, and, (2) drops the suit. Both have to be in writing.

Assuming the Plaintiff does both, then the matter is done. However if not, one still has to appear.
