My wife had a small credit card $500 ... she became ill and had to stop working. Our income was also greatly diminished this year due to my active duty deployment in the US Navy this year during which I was injured and discharged. I was a reservist and took time from my normal civilian job. My wife is now 8 months pregnant in a high risk pregnancy and she has been ordered to appear 30 days before the c section is scheduled. We have no real property. Our cars are owned by the bank and we rent and actually have to move in the next 60 days because the home we rent is being sold. Presslar presslar and warshaw have added judgment cost and fees and I’m estimating the balance owed around 650. We have paid them roughly $125 so far. I could potentially pay it off at the end of February but we are pretty much broke right now. Can they drag a very pregnant woman with no job, money, or assets in for a deposition? It seems like a huge waste of resources for that some of money. Can we postpone it until after she gives birth. I’m sure we could somehow pay the debt by then. Would we be better off talking to the debt buyer who purchased the debt from the credit card company?
Call the law firm. Tell them that your wife is pregnant and about to deliver. Tell them that she is not coming and that they will have to reschedule for at least 90 days out. Don't ask, tell.
There shouldn't be a problem.
