What if I Fail to Answer the Lawsuit in Time?

By failing to answer the lawsuit in time, you put yourself and your financial wellbeing at risk. As soon as the answer date expires, a default judgment could be entered against you. A default judgment is a judgment which can be awarded against you without you even being present. Once a default judgment is awarded against you, the creditors are just a stone throw away from being able to garnish your bank account and withdraw money up to the amount of the judgment.

In some instances, a default judgment can be set aside, but it is often very expensive and carries with it some risk of incurring ever greater damages. If you had a default judgment entered against you, the experienced Spring consumer Defense attorneys at Garg & Associates can help. However, even if the default judgment gets set aside or overturned, it does not mean the case goes away. The case will simply start over and you will still have to deal with the lawsuit and a potential judgment. The best advice, once you are sued, is simply to consult immediately with an experienced credit card defense attorney, such as the Conroe credit card defense lawyers at Garg & Associates as soon as you get sued.
