    Default Re: Going to Court for Debt, Can I Still Avoid a Judgement

    You should verify that the matter is not on the docket for 9/10, and plan to show up "just in case" with proof of the out-of-court settlement -- because sometimes the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing.

    Even if it is, you should still attend court.

    Unless you have confirmed with the court that is is off of the docket.

    Good news! I called this morning, and luckily someone in the litigation department was there, and the guy was actually very nice. We were able to set up a payment plan with automatic debit in 4 separate payments, and they stated there would be no more actions to collect this debt. The man was actually very nice, and not scary like i was thinking it would be.
    The next sound is him likely realizing they've sucked his account dry (or at least to the extent that he owed).

    You can't garnish a bank account before you get a judgment.
