If you do not show you have no shot at negotiating a lesser settlement. If you are a no-show a judgment will be filed against you. That is like a lien in that you will not be able to buy, sell or get a loan until the judgment is settled. Settlement will include interest.
So ignoring the judgment you will not be arrested and incarcerated but will only make it more expensive for you down the road. Show up and at the very least you will have a chance to negotiate a settlement.
