Q What Should I Do If I'm Sued and Can't Pay?
If you have received a notice that you are being sued, you may be understandably devastated. What can make the lawsuit even worse is when you do not have the means to be able to pay for the lawsuit. Even if you win, the time and money spent working toward a settlement can be extremely costly. In this situation, Chapter 7 bankruptcy may be your best option.
When you become aware that you will not be able to afford the lawsuit and maintain your current expenses, filing for bankruptcy can be a reasonable recourse. Filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy can stop a lawsuit from going further. Here are a few ways it can help:
- Stop creditors from harassing you
- Stop creditors from putting a lien on your home
- Stop creditors from garnishing your wages
These are all very real situations that can cause you to stress and make you fear for your — and your family’s — future.
