hi, I am being sued, by a collection agency, I am on disability, they filled the first time in October 2010, I am blind and did not attend the hearing. Now, today I received a summons, they moved the venue to a court house near my house. What is the worst thing that can happen, considering I'm on a fixed income.
Well, if they sue and you own your own house, there could be a lien place on your house. But if you have no other assets, and have not “reaffirmed” that you owe the debt by paying anything, then there’s little they can do except to aggravate you. But that aggravation could be horrible. SO, please countact attorney Jerry Lamet at http://www.debtcounsel.net/
