Asked 431 days ago by a user from Woodstock, GA
I found out that a lien has been put on my home for a debit I allegedly owed. I received the court summons and responded in writing as requested to the court and the attorneys for the debit collection company. After some time had passed I called the court to find out when the court date would be as I had not received any type of notification, the court informed me that the suing attorneys should contact me with the date. I never received any notification just a letter several weeks later from the attorneys informing me that the court’s decision (due to myself not attending) I was in the wrong and had to pay. Since then I have found out that my home has a lien on it. How do I reveres this outcome, I did all that was requested of me, but the attorneys never informed me of the court date, if they had I would have attended. Please advise
Unfortunately you screwed up. When you get court papers you need to see your OWN lawyer. It is YOUR duty to find out court dates and to file proper timely pleadings. The other side isn't supposed to help you.
At this point you need to pay the debt, or look into bankruptcy if you can't, since you lost by default.
Note that if you had acted within 30 days of judgment you may have still had appeal rights.
