If the defendant doesn’t show up for the hearing on Monday, you could (and at this point probably should) get a default judgment.Ok the court date is monday. i called and they said the defendant has already once (back in march) requested continuance and it wont be granted again. They siad they wont update the docket but they talked to the magistrate and he is aware the docket is incorrect but knows that it wasnt the plaintiff that requested continuance.
What happens if he doesnt show up on monday?
What happens assuming i win the case and then pursue the wage garnishment?

You can check the link posted earlier on garnishments for how to proceed now that you have a judgment.Back in front of my computer with my login in and account.
From talking to the people at the courthouse they provided paperwork to proceed with wage garnishment and collection from local bank or lien on house as 3options.
Any recommendation on how best to proceed? (one or both or other?)
I've also had a friend point me to an agency that charges around 40% for the process. anyone had any experience with that?

Do both immediately.wage garnishment and collection from local bank
The judgment becomes a lien on any real property they own, or will own, in the county. It doesn't do you any good until they try to sell the house to somebody who needs a mortgage, or if they try to get credit for something. Sometimes a judgment has to be recorded to become a lien, sometimes it's automatic. Check to make sure you get that right.lien on house
Yes, I have. A collection agency that charges you a commission will have no better luck collecting from a deadbeat than you will. They will figure it out quickly and move on to better prospects while yours sits.I've also had a friend point me to an agency that charges around 40% for the process. anyone had any experience with that?
