A: You don't want to take the approach of ignoring this. It is really something for a Connecticut attorney to advise you on; but it is also something on which you should take some form of action without further delay. If you missed a court date, that could possibly result in a default judgment against you. No one can say for sure what actually happened without knowing what your documents say, and what actually transpired in court (if as you mention, there might have been a court date that was missed).

As a starting point to confront your situation, think about contacting a Connecticut attorney and discussing their fee for a consult. Good luck

A: If you ignore these notices they will eventually get a judgment against you. After that, they will garnish your wages, lien your property, and/or execute on your bank accounts. If you have not done so, you may wish to consult with an attorney. Good luck.
