STOP LAW SUITS AND JUDGEMENTS AGAINST YOU.
People you owe money to are considered creditors and they can file lawsuits against you and may leave you feeling helpless. This is especially true when you know that you owe the money and you WANT to pay it. You might be tempted to do nothing about the lawsuit. After all why fight it, right? That will just cost even more money, right? Wrong!

You may not realize that you have rights under the bankruptcy law that can protect you. You also may not realize that doing nothing can have serious short and long term consequences.
What happens if I do nothing? If you do not file an answer or appear in court for your law suit, the plaintiff (the people sueing you) can ask the court for entry of a judgment in the amount stated in the suit. If no amount is stated, the plaintiff or person sueing you can put in a proof of claim in the amount of damages; generally unless you answered the complaint or appeared in court, you cannot participate in the hearing to set the damages. That means that you could actually end up paying more money than you expect.
But there is something that you can do that will put a stop to this process. One of the most obvious and easy answers is bankruptcy. Bankruptcy is all we do; and we do it well.
