Can a creditor get a Judgement without me knowing?
While it’s difficult for a judgment to be filed against you without you knowing, it’s not impossible. A summons may be sent to you in the mail or delivered to you in person. If you don’t show up in court in accordance with the summons, a default judgment will be entered against you.
