Does a mediation agreement hold up in court?
When you make an agreement at mediation, you and the other party can also agree whether it will be an informal agreement made ‘in good faith’ or whether it will be enforceable. An agreement is enforceable if it is legally binding and parties can take legal action to make the other side keep to the agreement.
What happens when a default Judgement is entered?
What happens once default judgment is given? Once a default judgment is obtained, a party can commence enforcement action against you – this can include the sheriff seizing your personal property, bankruptcy or obtaining an order to sell your house.
Will a Judgement ruin my credit?
Judgments are no longer factored into credit scores, though they are still public record and can still impact your ability to qualify for credit or loans. You should pay legitimate judgments and dispute inaccurate judgments to ensure these do not affect your finances unduly.
