What happens if you do not file an anwser with the magistrate court on a suit for a debt owed? 1 Answers as of August 17, 2011
If you had a suit served to you by the sheriff on a debt owed, and you do not file in writing or court an answer, what happens next when you are found guilty? Will my wages be garnished for the debt or jail?

You don't get found guilty in a civil suit. But when you lose you should expect to see the plaintiff go after your wages, bank account and assets.
