how to answer statement of claim
I went on maternity leave with no income and because of that I fell past due on my rent. I have returned to work and dropped off a full month payment on Monday but they mailed it back stating they had already started eviction process and it must be paid in full to stop process. I received statement of claim and answer form from the sheriff so I have 7 days to answer which will be Monday. I will have the full balance on Friday the 26th. My question is what should I select on the answer form to keep from having a judgement show on my credit? I'm not disputing the amount owed because now I have the income just don't want to hurt my credit by having a judgment against me.
