Re: Being sued by midland

Best case scenario is to pay, sorry, but a judgement would be worse.  Also, after you paid them, I would make sure that the case was dropped!

Re: Being sued by midland

Well, speaking from the other side of the fence, a judgement doesn't mean anything. My wife and I sued her former employer. Her paychecks were getting later and later until they just didn't show up. He admitted he owed, made one payment for $500 and then stopped talking to us. Sued, he "responded" and then didn't show up at the hearing. We got a default judgement. Doesn't mean anything. He still hasn't paid us a dime (now six months later) so we have to decide if it is worth the money to file liens, do writs of garnishment, etc. He owes us $2k and we're thinking it isn't worth it.

 

Call Midland and ask for a payment plan or PFD.

Re: Being sued by midland

They are sueing my for $1148.00. I settled for 870. I paid 200.00 on the day i agreed. When i recieved the settlement terms in the mail they are open to extending my due date to march if i dont have the funds by feb 28th. I plan to go to court with the settlement terms and im sure the judge would reschedule to a later date to give me time to pay by the agreed time.

Called MCM and they told me to contact the law firm. Will they arrange payment with me?
