If I had a judgment against me regarding a medical bill, can I call the attorney and set up payments?
Yes, if there is a judgment against you that you wish to pay off by all means you can contact the judgment creditor's attorney and work out an arrangement for monthly installments that you can afford. Make sure that any agreement that is entered into is in writing signed and dated by you and the judgment creditor so that there is no misunderstandings in the future.
Most judgment creditors are more than willing to work out a reasonable monthly payment agreement with the judgment creditor if it appears that the payments will remain consistent.
You need to realize that a judgment accrues interest at your state's legal rate on the unpaid balance.
When the judgment is paid in full, make sure you receive a signed and filed satisfaction of judgment in full from the judgment creditor showing that your obilgation is paid off.
