Q: I have an upcoming hearing for Order to Show Cause Why Judgment Should Not Be Revived for a credit card debt.
My sole income is pension and Social Security. At age 65, that's not going to change. Will a judge dismiss the order based on that?
A: No, not based on that reason. You need to attack the reasoning of the motion.
A: The only relevant issues are whether you have been served with the motion to revive the judgment, whether the motion was timely filed, and whether it has been completely paid. If the answers are yes, yes, and no, then the joists has no discretion to deny the motion. Consider trying to negotiate a settlement.
