Sued for an unpaid medical bill
(Luxemburg, wi, United States)
We have a medical bill that we never paid on. we were sent to collections then it was sent to a lawyer, then we were notified that we had a court hearing. I needed to have the court hearing postponed until the beginning of the year so the clerk of courts told me I needed to call the creditor's attorney. i did. he told me that we didn't even need to show up. there would just be a judgment against us and it was no big deal. I had no choice but to go with that option. Then after the hearing I get a letter telling me I need to pay this in full in 15 days or get my wages garnished. once again I have no one who will answer my questions with out getting an attorney of my own. I can't afford one. The Creditor's attorney told me that I needed to call a debt colletion place where the money is owed to now. they are telling me to apply for a loan at a bank and get the money or I will be garnished or there will be a lean on my house. I don't know what to do, where to turn. I don't know this whole process, the only one who will help me is the creditors attorney and he's obviously lying to me so I do whatever gets him the money faster. I just need time to find the money. Please help me!
