First Time In A Small Claim Court
A collection agency is taking me to small claims court for medical bills unpaid. we set up a agreement of $50 a month to pay off the bill. I made 3 payments and than hours at work were cut. I told them that I could not afford a $50 dollar
I work at Wal-Mart and cut from 40 hours to 32. Put a strain on me to just pay rent and utility buy food and gas to get to work. They said we had a agreement so there were no excuses. so I stop paying. So I received a summons for court. When my taxes came in I called and said I could pay them $400.00 of the $720 owed, I was told they would take the $400 and take the rest in 2payments with the balance of $580. I told them I only owed $720 and I could not pay that in 2 payments. They said now with lawyers a court cos it was now $980.
Do I have to take a $1000 to court with me? If I receive a judgment Wal-mart will let me go as I have seen before in the 11 years. A person gets a judgment and Wal-Mart obeys the law for a couple of months than find some other reason to let them go. So how much money do I have to take to court with me? Or will the judge set up a payment plan I can afford? Oh I did not pay the $400 with tax money because I told them I could not pay the balance in 2 payments because our hours are still cut, you lucky to get 32 hours.
