First, second and third: No attorney-client relationship exists by virtue of any Q&A with Michael A. Haber, Esq. on Avvo. Fourth: Anything that you post on Avvo (or on similar sites) or on any social media is by its nature public. It is essentially an admission / confession and can be introduced into evidence as a statement against your interest in a subsequent legal proceeding. Once posted you lose any reasonable expectation of privacy, so, as this is an open forum (with no privilege attached), please be extra careful when considering what to post online (forewarned is forearmed.)

The ultimate resolutions of the case will likely depend on the amount of arrears and your ability/willingness to start making payments.

You also may be eligible for Diversion, or even Intervention in Lieu of Conviction (ILC), if your non-payment was due to drugs, alcohol, or mental illness.
