Over ten years ago
I live in the state of Washington. In 1999 I filed for divorce, in the decree of dissolution my now ex-husband was ordered to pay one finance company which he did not. The finance company has changed hands at least three times, when the first company contacted me I explained about the judgement and I never heard from them again.
When the second company called I explained the same again, they wanted me to send them a copy of the judgment so I did haven't heard from them either. Eleven years after the judgment I get a certified letter from a collection agency and they are garnishing my bank account.
When I contacted them they informed me that my only option is to pay them and then sue my ex-husband for the money. Since I still haven't received what my ex was ordered to pay and or return I highly doubt I will ever get compensated for this.
Is there anything I can do that is very inexpensive as I am barely making ends meet at this time?
