AnswerThe past due balances will be reported to the credit agency which will ruin your credit. Bad marks on your credit can stay there for up to 7 years. Additionally, credit card and loan companies can file a lawsuit against you to collect on the balances and can then garnish your wages or take your assets.

Depending on the circumstances of your lawsuit and the type of lawsuit, there are various options that you may qualify for. Most litigation funding companies offer non-recourse lawsuit loans for a pending or settled lawsuit. A non-recourse lawsuit advance is a loan that only needs to be repaid if you win or settle your lawsuit otherwise nothing is owed to the funding company. To qualify for lawsuit loans no credit or employment is required, so long as you have a lawsuit. Obtaining a lawsuit loan for your lawsuit is as simple as picking up the phone and applying.

The cosigner has the right to file a lawsuit against the primary borrower's to recover his or her financial losses due to the defaulted lending agreement. The procurement of a second mortgage does not seem viable if the primary borrower's credit was not originally sufficient for them to obtain the loan without the need of a cosigner. It is more likely the house will have to be forfeited by means of foreclosure and the cosigner will have to try to recover losses by other means. The primary borrower's best choice is to obtain legal advice as to what their options are before a lawsuit is filed against them.

Credit Card debt is considered an Open Line of Credit. The Statute of Limitations for collection in Georgia it is 6 years. That is usually measured from the last use or payment.

It has been my experience that judgments from an eviction lawsuit automatically go on a person's credit rating. If you get a money judgment, you should be able to get a judgment lien form from the court clerk and record it at the county recorder's office. Sometimes this is called an abstract of judgment. This should be picked up by the credit bureau's and go on the credit rating.
