What sort of court date did you miss?
If there is a judgment against you, you need to petition the court for installment payments. There are SCAO forms for doing so that are pretty much fill in the blank. You will need to show your income and expenses so be ready with all that information.
If there is just a 'default' filed, you may be able to set aside the default with a showing of a valid defense and excusable neglect as to why you didn't show up for the hearing (hospitalization/transportation breakdown/death in the family?) If you owe the money that may be difficult. This is more difficult to succeed with and I'd strongly recommend you get an attorney to help you file the correct paperwork!
