ekimswish Posted February 11, 2012 Posted February 11, 2012 (edited) This topic isn't specific to foreigners, but it's news I heard today.The hardware we owe 40,000 pesos to from when we built our house a year ago is thinking to sue us now, maybe today. My wife was pretty worried about it because it could affect her ability to immigrate to Canada (something related to the criminal background check?). I told her it's not a crime to be poor.Anyways, what happened is that when we built the house, everyone quoted a really low price to me for how much it would cost. But, as everyone knows, that's how they hook you. The house took a lot longer, a lot more money, and eventually was a lot bigger than we had planned it.I came to Taiwan a year ago to make money teaching English to support the family, but it was really slow getting work the first six months. Over the last six months I've been able to piece together enough work that I'm making really good money, but then we've had to spend a lot on other things that were unexpected.Now, however, I'm finally clear to focus on paying my debts and I'm hoping the hardware will accept an April 21st date for me to pay them back in full. I have a few other people I've already promised to pay in February and March, and I just paid her friend, our guarantor, in January.To GET TO THE POINT!!!! what happens if you get sued like this for having still not paid a bill? What are the consequences? Edited February 11, 2012 by ekimswish Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
