Hello and thank you for the question.
by oral decision he is referring to the record
I take it the decision was recorded
so he is referring to the court record as recorded.
You should seek to get a copy of the transcript and order
once you have both to the extent it awards you relief it may be enforced
if awarded a judgment, you may seek to have a collections firm locally pursue enforcement
or likewise use a sheriff for that purpose
Is that clear?
he actually made a judgment against me.
you may then consider appealing
or consider settling with the other side
as appeals are time consuming and often not successful
so i call the other side saying what?
You may offer to settle for half the judgment for example
as enforcing a judgment can be difficult and time consuming
and they may think you may appeal and take up more time and costs
ok,let me try that.
Is that clear and acceptable?
Kindly click on a positive rating for the answer
anything else i could do
settlement is the most practical
appeal is time consuming and difficult as noted
hiring a lawyer likewise and expensive
have a nice weekend
Kindly rate the answer as excellent
thank you in advance

You said i could agree on a reduced amount or a payment plan?
