Do you still have to go to court if you signed a stip?

member profile picture

I signed a stip and sent it back to the attorneys for the plantiff, I know that the court has to know about this, whonotifies the court, me or the attorneys? Do I still have to go to court, this is not a trial but a it says to appear at the clerk's office.




I'm not sure. I would think that if you signed one there is no court date.

i would still check with your courthouse clerk to make sure.
seen it on the forums.the CA or attorney makes consumer
think they have an arrangement and such.next thing there
is a default judgement.check with your court clerk.

Should I call the attorneys? Or should I just bring my copy when I go to court? How long does it take anyway for them to file it with the court, if you know?

The court date was set already after I answered the summmons, Shouldn't it have been discontinued? now I'm wondering if they filed the agreement with the court, how long do I have to wait. Yes, this is for a payment arrangement

One other question: Can you go to jail if you answered your summons first with you have never done business with the plaintiff and then reached an agreement with them? I read somewhere that you could get into trouble.

Had you ever done business with Midland? Probably not. Did you make a statement anywhere in your response that you reserve the right to amend your answers? Most answers to summons tend to be boilerplate answers. Since your original relationship was with an OC and not a JDB, I would say that you did not perjure yourself if you answered "no knowledge of an account with a JDB". Obviously, the plaintiff was able to provide you with enough information thru the course of the suit to convince you otherwise since you have signed the stipulation of judgement.

No, I never did business with midland that's why I answered it that way. but during that time, like you said, I was shown the proof and want to try and pay this off without having to go to court. My case still shows as "active" when I checked online, how long does it take to file the agreement? My court date is Monday.
