My question involves collection proceedings in the State of:MA. I have two judgments against me in the state of NY. They both are almost 7 years old. I have had different bank account frozen due to the judgment. I moved to MA 2 years ago and am getting my life back on track and need to figure out a way to start to pay these back. My questions are:
If I open a bank account or open a joint account with my wife can these bank accounts be frozen?
These accounts would be connected to a savings account in my wife's name if the saving account is only in her name can that account be frozen?
If I open an account in my mane and use it to start to pay off the judgment will that account be frozen?
Do Judgments have a length of time that they are good for or does the judgment stand until the debt is paid off?
