Hospital bill Judgement
My husband had a heart attack 1 1/2 years ago had no health insurance and was laid off from his job shortly after. He found work but is self employed and is not supposed to work anymore than 7 hours a day. The hospital would not accept the payment we could afford and are now suing him for the full amount of $21,000 plus interst of $8,000. The debt was in his name only, but I am afraid they can take my money as well. I work part time as an Office Manager 3 days a week. He was on unemployment for 6 months last year and we could barley make ends meet. Can they seize our bank account and garnish my wages as well. I feel his only recourse is to file bankrupcy, since he can't afford to pay that kind of debt. We are both 60 years old this year and unfortunately I don't know what to do.
