We received a judgement against us on a chargeoff account from 6 yrs. Ago. We received no notification about court. And they asked for 15,000. When original amount was 9000. We offered to settle for 3,500. Last year and they did not respond. We need to have the judgement set aside. What do we need to do? Can they do this?

Re: Financial judgement
If you were never served with the lawsuit, then you would have valid grounds for having the judgment set aside and for obtaining a new trial. I would suggest that you go see a lawyer immediately to start the paperwork for trying to get the judgment vacated. The longer you wait after knowing about the judgment, the less likely a judge is to set it aside.
