Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only. Please feel free to ignore any phone service request, the expert does not send those unless asked by customer and they are sent by the site automatically.

It all depends on how the case was dismissed by the court. If the court did not say that the case was dismissed with prejudice, then the lender can come back later at any time within the statute of limitations and file a new suit based on continued breach/default of the loan contract. If the case was dismissed with prejudice (specifically stated that way by the judge) they cannot sue again on the same issues and would have to file a motion to vacate the dismissal and prove they had good cause for not attending.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback by clicking on the 5 stars at the top of your page, as the experts are not employees of the site and get no credit for spending time with customers unless they leave positive feedback. Thank you.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
