What is the difference between a 7 day notice and a 30 day notice?
A 7 day notice allows a person to stay if they pay the amount that they are required to before the 7th day. Failing to do so will result in beginning eviction procedures. A 30 day notice is a notice that terminates tenancy even if a payment is made.
How do I answer a complaint?
A complaint can be answered by sending in a written statement to the court either explaining your side of the situation or by objecting to the complaint. It is required that you sign and date your answer and mail it into the Civil Division of the District Court within 21 days of receiving it. Once the court has received the answer, the case will be set up for a scheduling conference. Failing to answer the complaint will result in a default judgment. It is extremely important that you are aware of all court dates and are in attendance of them following your scheduling conference.
How do I set up payments on a garnishment?
Most all garnishments are served by the employer. In order to make payments on the garnishments you must file a Motion for Installment Payments with the 56-B District Court. A filing fee of 20 dollars will be assessed when you file the form. The Plaintiff will be notified and will give an answer to your request. If the Plaintiff has no objection to the motion you filed then the court will make a judgment. If the Plaintiff does object, the case must be set up for a hearing.
