Can you lose your house because of a judgment against you?
Asked in Repossession, Civil Cases
Will it hurt you in being able to buy a house or car if you lose a civil suit against you?
Probably, in most cases a judgment is entered against the defendant. A judgment will remain on a person's credit report for seven years from the time of entry and if renewable can be reentered on one's CR. The length of time a judgment remains public record depends upon the laws of the state in which the judgment is entered.

If you get sued can you lose your house?
In theory. In practice, a person would have to lose, then have a more of a judgment against them then they could pay, then not pay for awhile. A lien may be put on their house at that point. But that doesn't lose them their house, it just means that if they sell it, any profit goes to the person who placed the lien on it. Now, a forced sale can be petitioned, and possibly won, but it also depends on if there is enough equity in the house to make that viable. Most people are in no danger of losing a home. If you don't pay your mortgage, the bank will foreclose on you. Many people have already lost their homes because of the poor economy.

Can you lose your house from a judgment in another state?
It may be possible, so contact a local lawyer who practices in this area. It is possible that a judgment creditor in one state can sue on the judgment in your state and have it entered as a lien in your state on your house. If the out of state judgment was gotten properly, i.e. with all due process requirements being met, you will not have an opportunity to contest the facts of the complaint. The court will rule that you had your chance in the other court to do that.

If you have a judgment against you in Pennsylvania can you lose your house?
The forced sale of a primary residence is possible by a judgment creditor. However, this seldom happens as the procedure is lengthy and costly, generally the judgment creditor will place a lien on the property thereby encumbering it so that it cannot be refinanced, have the title transferred or sold until the lien is satisfied. Whether or not a valid lien is possible and/or a forced sale of the property is viable depends largely on how the property is titled.

Is a misdemeanor considered a conviction?
A misdemeanor is the designation of the severity of the charge or judgment against you, not whether or not you are convicted. Misdemeanors are minor and felonies are major. You are charged with one, and then you either win or lose the case and only then, if you lose, is there a conviction. The conviction on a misdemeanor is not as serious as a conviction of a felony.

Can a judgment be filed against a person without having to go to any court?
No, even if the plaintiff wins the case through arbitration they will still need to file a petition with the court of venue to receive a writ of judgment. On the other side, however, if the defendant fails to respond to a summons pertaining to a lawsuit or judgment he/she will lose by default and may not be able to claim any of their property exemptions.

Asked in Civil Process, Law & Legal Issues, Civil Cases
What does it mean to set aside a default judgement?
A default judgment is ordered by a court when one party to the suit "wins" by "default". He or she is not "winning" based on the merits of the case, but is "winning" (getting a judgment in his/her favor) because the other party screwed up somehow, technically. Usually this means that one party failed to appear in court, so a judgment by default is entered against him/her. Sometimes, there is a good reason for someone failing to show up in court. Missing a court date and having a default judgment taken against you does not always mean "you lose". If you can show good cause for missing the court date, the court may set aside it's previous judgement (the "default judgement") and the case will proceed. If a default judgment is entered against you for failure to appear, and if you have good reason for having missed the court date, your attorney will likely file a Motion to Set Aside Default Judgment. There will be a hearing to determine whether there is good cause to set aside the judgment. If it is set aside, the case proceeds. If it is not, you can appeal after a final judgment. You need an attorney.
