I live in Rhode Island, and missed both court dates for a small claims suit by Domestic Bank. The first date I missed because I didn't know I had it, until it was too late. I was using my sister's address as my mailing address. The second date was today, but because I am caregiver for my 88 year old father, there was no way I could have gotten to the courthouse. There is no one else to sit with him. He is pretty much a 24/7 job and it is rare to be able to go anywhere without taking him. I don't have a vehicle, so I would have had to use public transportation. Since I missed the first court date the judgment therefore, was against me. I did receive the second notice of the pending date in time, and it was only way to "object to wage attachment” I contacted the Bank's attorneys but they only wanted me to fill out a paper, telling about my various expenses. I feel that it is NONE of anyone's business, since I barely get by with my $750/mo disability check. I also tried calling the court clerk to find an alternative way to my objecting to the wage attachment. According to the court papers the ONLY way to ask not to have a wage attachment was to be in court TODAY. So, now what can I do to resolve this dilemma? The reason the Bank is suing me is because they allowed an overdraft of an amount too high for me to pay it back all at once, which they would have done, if I hadn't closed my account. I never authorized an overdraft of any kind with my account, in the first place. NOW WHAT?What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
