monthly payments on judgment

by Jamie

If I make any monthly payment like $100 per month on a judgment can they still garnish my bank accounts or pursue other legal actions?

Jamie,

Unfortunately making small payments on a judgment typically does not stop a judgment creditor from using other legal methods to collect the judgment. Have you talked with them about setting up a payment plan you can afford? Are they willing to work with you? If so, get the agreement in writing before you pay. If not, then you may need to consider talking with a
bankruptcy attorney so at least you understand what they can and cannot go after in terms or your assets, income or other property.
