My question involves collection proceedings in the State of Michigan. I have received a Motion of Summary Judgment from the court. They pushed the court date up to a few weeks from now on Aug 8 and Im not sure what to do.
Should I get a lawyer now?
Should I try to reschedule the court date?
Do have a chance in court to settle at all?
What can I expect if I go to court by myself? Is this a smart move. Also if they do get a judgement, how can I negotiate payment plans and minimize damage to my credit report?
