Hello, I was served papers by Capital One Bank a few months back. I filled out a form for the plaintiff to prove their allegations against me and turned it into the court here in my town, as well as sent a certified copy to Capital One Bank. I now received a Notice of Bench Trial paper in the mail from the Civil Clerk of the Court. Can anyone tell me what to expect? I know that if I do not show up I could get a default judgement against me. This is all new to me & I'm trying to self-navigate. Is it likely for a representative of Capital One Bank or their lawyer show up? Is it also possible to work out a payment plan granted they win and I get that default judgement? Thanks in advance for any direction!
