The time to fight it was when you got notice to go to court about the judgement. Now they have it because you lost by default. It means they will take 25% of whats left after the court decides how much you need to pay rent,food,ect. they cant make you starve but you wont have any money to go to the casino with. LOL

They will take 25% of your income. If you are intending to file for CH 7 protection, your time is now. You can search the internet and find sites that charge $175.00 to prepare your papers. Then, once the papers are complete, sign them and deliver them to your local bankruptcy court with a filing fee (usually around $200.00). Go to the trustees meeting and your done. Save hundreds and even thousands of dollars by filing on your own. good luck.
