Thank you for your reply. But if I can not afford the monthly payments he is demanding how with the court rule on that?
If the judgment is not paid, the Plaintiff can do one or more of the following for satisfaction of judgment:
-levy a bank account;
-garnish up to 25% of a paycheck;
-lien a titled property; and/or
-attach and sell non-exempt assets of the Defendant to satisfy judgment. See here
on what is exempt from judgment.Will they expect me to pay the full amount when I don't have the money?
See above.In the next few months, I will not be able to pay my rent. How can the judge force something when I just wont be able to pay the monthly amount he wants?
See above.Also, if a judgement is held against me, how will that play out?
See above. Or, the Plaintiff can simply do nothing if they do not know how or run out of money to pay their attorney. Some Plaintiffs never bother to enforce judgment. Will they garnish a percentage of my wages?
Yes - see above.Is bankruptcy an option?
Yes. A bankruptcy will often void a judgment or reduce it to pennies on the dollar. See here
to see how to major bankruptcy options play out.
