Last March I was taken to court and evicted from a property in WI, where the landlord waited 6 months to evict me from. He knew I was having financial problems and was trying to find another place to stay. He knew I just had a baby and seemed very understanding that I would get caught up on the past due rent, which I had every intention of doing so. Long story short I was not able to find another place to live for me and my children and he ultimately took me to court. My fiance at the time sent me money for a one way ticket out of the country to come be with him. I informed the judge of my plans and he only told me he wanted me to complete a financial disclosure form before I left. I did so and have not heard from anyone since regarding what I owe the previous landlord. I am now starting to finally get back on my feet, yes I am back in the USA, and am wondering how to proceed.On Wisconsin’s circuit court access website it just shows the amount of the civil judgment, does that mean I owe that amount? I’m confused by it all. I don’t want to have a huge amount being owed and not know about it. Yes I was wrong to let it go this long so please don’t judge me for it. Also does a eviction stay on your record for 10 years after the court date or after everything has been paid? thank you so much for any and all advice!
