    Default What if I Don't Pay on a Judgment

    Back in August I was sued for an old credit card debt. I agreed to pay $60 a month and made the Sept payment. Now the Oct. payment is due and I have decided to file bankruptcy and will be filing the week of Nov. 9th. So my question is what will happen if I don't pay and before I get the bankruptcy filed?

    Once I get it filed do I just then give the collection agency/attorney firm that case number? How quickly can the law firm go back into small claims court and get a freeze on my banking account or garnishment?

    That will depend upon the company you're paying. They might take immediate action, they might now. We couldn't tell you.

    That, and your attorney's contact information.

    Once you file, they must cease all collection efforts.

    I decided to go ahead and pay the Oct amount, but it will be my last. Also I am filing pro se so there are no attorney's involved. I have listed them in my matrix so they should be notified by the court.
