  • Mike Ryan says:

    I am delinquent on a credit card debt of $1780. A few days ago I received a summons from a county sheriff’s deputy stating that the credit card company was suing me and stating that I was to appear in local magistrate’s court.

    My only source of income is from a pension (although I also have an IRA). The only other money I have is $2,000 in a checking account. I don’t own any stocks, bonds, or big ticket items such as a home, a car, etc.

    By law, private creditors aren’t allowed to garnish a pension or IRA. In view of this, what could possibly happen to me should I decide to ignore the summons to appear in magistrate’s court?
