Lawsuit Defense And Judgments Can Be Expensive

Has a creditor filed a lawsuit against you? If so, you must not ignore it. If you do not file a timely legal response to the creditor lawsuit, you automatically lose. Though the cost of defending a lawsuit can be significant, losing a case means you may be responsible for an even larger financial judgment.

You Have The Right To Protect Your Assets

You have a right to defend yourself against lawsuits even if you legitimately owe some money. Lawsuits are most frequently brought against people for many financial problems such as:

  • Mortgage foreclosure
  • Unpaid credit card bills
  • Outstanding hospital bills

In Pennsylvania, if a monetary judgment is issued against you, serious consequences may follow. A lien can be placed against your real estate barring you from selling or refinancing until the lien is removed. Additionally, collections companies may pursue seizing your assets, including vehicles, bank accounts and personal property.

Our state has very few exemptions to protect your property when a judgment is entered against you. You are only allowed to retain $300, wearing apparel, Bibles and school books, sewing machines, uniforms, and some retirement funds.

You May Not Have To Pay Your Lawsuit Judgment

When you have unpaid debts, usually it is due to the fact that you do not have the money to pay. A lawsuit judgment will bring additional financial responsibilities further stretching dollars that lost their elasticity a while ago. Another way to solve your financial problems and possibly erase a judgment is to file for personal bankruptcy.
