Customer Question

A credit card company has a judgement against me. They are requesting $2000 a month from me. The problem is now I can not pay my spousal and child support if this happens. My employer says that is 25 per cent of my disposable income. My employer does not know that I have this obligation since I pay it from my personal account. If I show them my divorce agreement, do you think that obligation (support) payments will be considered before any money is given to the credit card company?

You need to have a lawyer negotiate an alternate payment plan that allows you to repay the judgement without affecting your child/spousal support obligation. It is really not up to your employer so showing them the divorce decree really does little. You need to have the judge who ordered the credit card payments to adjust the payments based on your current support obligations. Those usually take precedence.
