If the court has granted a Judgment, then the debtor will need to contact the collector and arrange to have payments made. It is up to the collector to decide if they will accept payments with interest or if they want a lump sum payment. The Judgment is good for 7 to 10 years, depending on the state and then it can be renewed.
Once it is paid, the debtor needs to request a "Release" be filed with the Courts and also that a copy of that Release be mailed to them.
