long story short i am court ordered by a probate judge to pay debt that was filed in a bankrupcty due to a divorce the card was 6800 and now its 16,000 i have made many many offers to pay off including payments monthly, they have said no to everything and want 500 a month to which i cant afford. now tomorrow i am off to court on a contempt charge for not paying the card becuase the card is my exwifes and she is taking me back do to the debt collector not working with me.. i have all the proof that i have tryed to work out payments with them. but they have told me to shut off my cell phone, cable, stop giving my dog his meds that keep him alive and pay the card. and even though i am making payments they said they will still sue her becuase its not what they want a month. so can this do all of this. is this legal.
