They can sue you, but if you truly cannot afford to pay them I think the judge may take that into consideration. You must appear to any court proceedings, if not, the judge will find in the other party's favor. If you are being threatened by a debt collector with legal action they may very well be violating the FDCPA. Do some reading on the FDCPA (fair debt collection practices act) if this is the case. Most FDCPA law firms will not charge you any out of pocket costs if they determine that you have grounds to take the debt collector to court.

They aren't going to know your employment status unless they are told.  All they know is that a debt is not getting paid and their job is to get the money. YOUR job is to manage your credit wisely and reading the articles here will provide valuable information to help.  I know since I am on disability.
