Mckinney, TX asked in Civil Litigation for Texas

Q: Hello I have a question if someone is available to help...

My aunt is being sued by a company about an account that wasn't hers. I did research and found her brother opened the account and pulled the money from the account because she shares an account with my grandmother. She's a caretaker and might not be able to make the court date. What would happen in her absence? We are going after my uncle for the money but it's going to take longer to get it back before her court date.

Thank you

A: If you miss a court date you risk getting court orders or even a judgment entered against you. You really need an attorney to represent you and present your defenses to the court.
