Can't Make A Court Date Tomorrow - Help!?
I may be able to make the court date but I am just weighing out my options if I cannot make it. The court date is for unpaid association fees at my condo. I just havent had the money in the last few months and they are suing me. I know I am responsible for the money and attend to paying it off this month. If I do miss the court date will they issue a bench warrant? If i go to the court this week but dont have the money, will they arrest me?
I have never been in legal trouble so I am just freaking out.
Can anyone help?
Additional Details
Thanks for everybody's response that were helpful. I called this morning and got a new date. I live out of state now and they never technically served me papers. They taped them to my mom's door and by the time I got them, I couldnt get a flight to Michigan for anything I could afford. At any rate, they gave me a new date so I have time to get tickets. Thanks again.

You will be arrested if you do not go to court on your court date.

Skipping the court date is the worst thing you can do. It says:

I'm a coward.
I know I owe the money and I refuse to pay it.

Man you better take your butt to court and at least face the judge and show that you are at least trying to cooperate. Who knows, they may give you more time. But if you don't go you won't have a chance

I don 't think for a money judgement they'll issue a warrant, but they will rule against you - meaning that money you owe will be on your credit report and they can come after you to collect it. I also think if you just don't have the money and admit it, they'll rule against you. You should have contacted the court or an attorney long before this.

You will get a judgement against you and the association can lien your property,attach wages,or draw a demand draft from your bank acct.

If you skip a criminal court case you can be found in contempt of court and a warrant will be placed for your arrest. If it is a civil court case you will automatically lose your case. Just go to the court date and tell them you are having financial difiiculties. Payment options can be arranged.

This is a civil matter, the HOA will just get a judgment against you and then they can garnish wages, lien your condo and other lovely things. It would be best to go, you know that you owe the money so go there and work out some payment plan with them, you are going to be responsible for their attorney fees and court cost also.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

If it is civil (unpaid fees) and you simply don't show up they will rule against you. You need to ask for a continuance.

If it was criminal they could issue an arrest warrant for you.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Well don't miss the court date because that will just make things worse. Go to the court and see what can be worked out with the judge.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

they will probably give you a payment plan if you go to court and explain yourself. if you do not go, they will probably issue a warrant for your arrest and then the fines will double or triple at least. not to mention being in jail...

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

If you don't show up, there will be a default judgement against you. This will not only be for the amount you owe, it will include the filing fees and attorneys fees on top of it.

If there is a reason you cannot make it, call the court and see if you can get it rescheduled BEFORE the court date tomorrow. If you're not going because you don't have the money, tell them that WHEN YOU'RE THERE. Skipping it is just going to make the situation worse.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

You are WAY better off showing up without the money than not showing up at all. If you come and make a good faith agreement to pay the money by a certain date then you stand a good chance of coming out of the whole thing with a good settlement and no record.

Good luck, and do whatever you have to in order to appear.

If you just blow it off, you will lose the case by default and face eviction and a financial judgement against you.

Depending on the jurisdiction and their 'discretional lattitude' you might also be subject to a warrant for 'failure to appear' (not good to ignore court orders).

First, you can try to work out something with the property association and ask them for more time. If not, then go to the court clerk and ask for a continuance to allow you 'time to pull together your case'. If you are too late to see the court clerk, then show up for the hearing, explain your situation then and ask for a continuance.

As long as you keep communication open, most courts will work with you on this. If you have one, your lawyer should be doing this footwork for you.

Good luck.
