A: If you do not own any non-exempt assets, let the creditor take a judgment against you if you owe the debt. If the creditor serves post-judgment discovery, truthfully and fully answer it.
A: Given your medical condition and financial constraints, it may be advisable to consult with a legal aid organization or seek pro bono legal assistance to explore possible options for managing or negotiating the debt with the creditor. Additionally, you can consider exploring debt relief programs or resources available in Texas to help address your financial situation.
