If I'm being sued for an unpaid hospital debt, what happens if I do not go?
Question Details: I have a court date that I can't make because of a death in the family. How can get this solved without a court date?
It would be advisable to request a continuance because of a death in your family.
If you don't request a continuance and don't appear in court for the hearing, most likely the judge will rule against you and in favor of the creditor.
