Hi, I live in Missouri and have a rental business. Every month I have to go through 1-4 evictions. Most judgments I get are never paid. This is an ongoing issue. To make things easier, I have created a spreadsheet that fills out forms for Rent and Possession, Unlawful Detainers and Garnishment... Read more »
Rent and Possession petitions and Unlawful Detainer petitions need not be filed using the forms made available by the Missouri judiciary or your local circuit court. I am not certain but believe that the garnishment forms on the available at https://www.courts.mo.gov/page.jsp?id=103116 and your...Read more »
I am filing a garnishment form (CV92) in Missouri. I am confused on if the Debtor or the Employer is the Respondent. I have Googled this and it's about a 50/50 split. So who do I list as the Respondent? The Debtor or the Employer?
I inherited a trailer that I didn’t want. I found someone that wanted it so I gave them the title and keys. A month later the person that owned the lot it was in called me and said he didn’t want that person to live on his property. Another months went buy and the guy I gave the trailer to was...

The reason for my absence from court was that I care for my mom that has alzheimers and dementia, and the morning of court my mom was in a bad way and i called the court clerk to ask for a continuance. I was told that I should have called a day earlier but I didn't know that my mom was gonna be in... Read more »
How can you see the docket or what information do you need? I’m just curious as the hearing that’s coming up about this. I understand that me not working it won’t go away but they haven’t made any attempt to serve my ex at all.
Without seeing the docket entry, there's no way for me to answer that question other than to guess that maybe they only got one fo the two of you served and the next hearing is on a motion to review but as to the other one of you.
Whether you do or don't have money to to pay the judgment is...Read more »
What does this mean? REVIVAL OF JUDGMENT CALLED, HEARD AND SUSTAINED. THEREFORE, THIS COURT HEREBY REVIVES THE ORIGINAL JUDGMENT HEREIN WITH COSTS TO BE PAID BY DEFENDANT. FOR ADDITIONAL TEN YEARS, AS PROVIDED BY LAW
Since you asked this question twice, I will give you the same answer as I did before:
"Generally, yes, because of the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the Constitution of the United States--which requires all states in the union honor the judgments of all other states. However, as noted in...Read more »
It depends. Was the judgment issued through a Missouri court or a Kansas court? If it was a Kansas judgment, was the Missouri attorney counsel of record in the case? If it was a Kansas judgment, has it been registered here in Missouri? If it was a Missouri judgment, then a garnishment may be...Read more »
I pulled my credit and noticed it is alot of inaccuracies that are being report on it. I have tried to contact the bureaus directly and they just send correspondence back stating the information has been updated with no proof. How can I get this information deleted off my credit? I have alot of... Read more »
That company is a debt buyer. It likely purchased the right to sue you by paying pennies on the dollar on the debt. Contact a local consumer attorney. Any Missouri attorney can log on to casenet and review the documents filed in the case. You might have a good defense to the suit or you might...Read more »
You didn't ask a legal question. You did not unconditionally accept the offer but rather made a counteroffer, i.e., you would pay if they produced the original contract. I don't know whether they responded by validating the debt, even if the document was not what you requested.
A month ago I had taken my ex roommate to court. I won my case in small claim court. I have tried to contact the defendant to arrange payments, but he refuses to pay/contact me back. I have been told that I can set up garnishments for where ever he might work. The problem is I can not find out... Read more »
Welcome to the world of collections. Getting the judgment is often the easy part. It’s tough to find employment and banking information. The good news is that your judgment is good for 10 years before it will need to be revived and it will accumulate interest. You could try to find a...Read more »
It would be irresponsible for someone on Justia to tell you what you should do, because we don’t know all of the facts and an attorney shouldn’t advise a non-client. Here are factors you may consider in deciding what to do.
1. How much money is at stake and does it make financial...Read more »
Make sure you show up to defend the case. Confer with a attorney. I don’t know the cause of action over which you are being sued. If it’s the Merchandising Practices Act the court has discretion to award reasonable attorneys’ fees to the prevailing party. Take this seriously.
When i check the online court docket entries it says "PLAINTIFF BY ATTORNEY CRESON, DEFENDANT APPEARS NOT. CASE RESET" My question is, what does "Defendant Appears Not", mean? I know they reschedule the case, but when i read that statement it reads like they showed up and i didn't. Which was the... Read more »
