    Default Frozen Bank Account

    My account was given to a creditor and I was sent a court date. I contacted the creditor directly and instead of going to court we came to an agreement to have a payment of $100/month. I missed the past two months payment from being out of work. Today I found my bank account frozen with my first check from my new job ready to be deposited electronically.

    I contacted both the bank and the creditor and told them my situation and they said that it may take a month to get my account unfrozen. Does this sound right? I told the creditor that I could make payments with the same arrangements and pay off what I missed in the last two months with the check waiting to be deposited.

    He said that I shouldnt have missed two payments and that I should have taken more responsibility. I told him that I didnt like being talked to like a child for missing two payments. He then said Im not willing to work with you and hung up on me.

    What should I do? I live in Maryland and am clueless on how to get access to my check to pay other bills.

    So rather than going to court you entered into a consent judgment setting forth the payment plan?

    It appears that you can try to convince the court to lift the order freezing your account, or you can pay off the judgment.
