I received a lawyer’s letter last week summoning me to court within 14 days for unpaid maintenance fees on my home amounting to over RM11,000. 

This set off a can of worms. I do not work; my husband pays all our bills. This is how I found out that he has a bad gambling addiction and has been successfully hiding it up till now. 

Until I get us back on firm financial footing, I cannot address my personal life, which is basically torn apart due to trust issues. 

My question is, I am trying to negotiate a payment plan but in the meantime:

1) What happens if I don’t attend court? I own my home outright — bank loan has been paid off. 

2) What happens if I don’t attend court BUT I pay off my debt? I have about RM3,500 in hand that I can pay now and within the next two months will be able to pay it ALL off after funds from some work I did come in. I explained this to management but not sure if they will allow me to the extension of two months that I asked for.
