Make sure he shows up when he's supposed to. Explain the situation, financial hardship, and see if they are willing to settle for a lesser amount. Don't let them win a default judgment by not showing up because you'll have a very nasty mark on your credit report for 10 years, AND you'll have to pay the full amount.
