I’m Unemployed and Being Sued by My Credit Card Company. – Brad

i received a summons for court. I am being sued by one of the credit card companies. My question is, can I call up the court and request the date to be rescheduled ? And in the meantime look into finding a bankruptcy lawyer ? Or am i required to appear? the problem is that I have now been unemployed for almost 2 years. I read on some pages that when you dont own a home , are unemployed, have nothing in the bank that it is usually written off. However, I dont believe it will be that simple. I dont know if this is important but i recently (within the past 3 months) started collecting Medicaid and food stamps. i’m just wondering if that would play a role in the decision. my first question is the most pressing issue right now though. I have not paid any CC bills since mar 2010. thanks in advance for having a service like this that questions can be answered
