What Happens after a Summary Judgment?

Repercussions of a Summary Judgment

Once a debt collection agency has a default summary judgment against a consumer, it’s a relative breeze to have the consumer’s wages garnished or bank account seized, and to put a black mark on his or her credit report. Community property is included in the assets that can be seized after a summary judgment. To add insult to injury, the money that comes from a consumer as a result of a default judgment first goes to pay fees and interest, and lastly to principal. Because of this provision, consumers with a default summary judgment entered against them often find themselves in situations where they pay twice or three times the amount of the original debt.
