My question involves judgment recovery in the State of: Michigan/Illinois
My fiancee had an agreed Judgement entered in the amount of 3,750,000 back in October in Illinois due to a negligent vehicular incident which resulted in death of a pedestrian.
We have just been served with a Citation to Discover Assets and to appear in court in Illinois on June 2.
Question: We now reside in Michigan. He has no valid drivers license, no vehicle and no money to physically attend this court date.
If they enter a default judgment against him, it's something that we know he owes anyway.
We have no tangible assets, no bank accounts, no monies, no work monies that can be garnished.
However, it also states that he may be found in Contempt of Court and arrested if he does not appear.
Can we comply with all the documentation requested to the Plaintiff's attorney and not show up for the Court date? Send a Courtesy Copy to the Judge in the case.
Can I file a Motion for continuance and ask also to be allowed for him to be interviewed by phone? due to the hardship of physically not being able to attend this hearing two states away?
