Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.

Restitution has the right to intercept your winnings, if any, and receive them first. So if you owe more via restitution than you are slated to receive via settlement, there is a chance that you may lose your full settlement to restitution.

Sincerely,

Dimitry, Esq.
