What happens if you sue someone and they don't show up to court?

If you do not go to a small claims hearing, the creditor will win automatically "by default". The plaintiff will get a judgment for the amount of money they asked for in the complaint. You can get a copy of the judgment from the court. Your credit report will show you owe this money for the next 7 years.
