    Default Sued Over Debt

    I got a letter stating that I am being sued from a debt of 4000, now $5000 with collection fees. It state that I must take actiona nd present this to my lawyer. It states theat if I fail to take action the case may priceed with action and a judgement made against me. I owe the money and willing to make payments. I don't have the 5k. My lawyer , so i;ve learned is a schmuck. If I let it go, will I be able to make payments to the court? IN PA

    Q: If I let it go, will I be able to make payments to the court?

    A: No. Courts are not in the banking business.

    Sometimes it is possible to get the court to approve, for example, an order of periodic garnishment, such that monthly installments toward a judgment are taken out of your paychecks. I can't speak to Pennsylvania's practices, and unfortunately your state's legislature hasn't gotten around to putting the state's statutes online.

    I read the other day that the man who created that site gave up on updating it in 2005. I expect that most of the statutes that are posted are the same or only slightly amended, but at a certain point it becomes problematic to rely on such a site.
