First, many loan agreements have "acceleration clauses" meaning that if you miss a specified number of payments, the entire balance becomes due and payable immediately. If you can't or won't pay the entire balance, your creditor can sue you for failure to pay.

If the debt is secured (a mortgage or car loan, for example), they can repossess the collateral (your house or car). If it's unsecured, they'll have to sue you and hope for the best.
