I have a question about the Courts in Canada . I have been out of work for more than a year . The credit card companies in which I have credit are threatening to take me to court.One has already served me papers.I have a court date four weeks from now .I don’t have any kind of defence,I do owe the money.I cannot pay the amount because I am out of work.Do I have to go to court .I am embarrased about my finances but my hands are tied .If I were to declare bankruptcy would I have to go to court? Do I get in trouble if I don’t attend this hearing my creditor has requested . I wouldn’t want to be picked up by the police if I didn’t attend .My situation is not of any type of fraud or anything like that .I just can’t find work.I hope somebody who knows can reply to my post .
