I am really new to all this. I just discovered this site and have been trying to learn about improving my credit and everything. But my boyfriend got a letter in the mail today telling him he has to go to court. It's from hospital bills that he couldn't pay. He was trying to fill out the financial paper to get some type of aid from the hospital to help him pay it but I guess he didn't get it in soon enough and now it's too late since it was sent to collections I guess. But neither of us have any idea what to do now. Can someone please help us? The total amount it says he owes is $4806.50. Please tell me there not gonna make him pay all that because he has been unemployed for about 3 months now and that's why he couldn't pay the bill in the first place. He doesn't have any money at all right now so what are they gonna do?
what does a judgement mean? Is there anyway they will work with him on this? I just don't understand how there gonna make him pay all that when he literally doesn't have any money right now until he can find a job.
it's a summons. It says he needs to appear before the court within 20 days of receiving the letter and he just got it today. But I wanted to kinda get an idea of what they were gonna do to him before we did anything.
A judgment is a public record...and it will hurt scores a lot...and it will be on reports for 10 years...unless he gets the money...pay...and try his hardest to get a "Release of Judgment"..after payment..and it will be removed...
