    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . Yes, any creditor can enforce a right to be paid in full by seeking a judgment. With that judgment a creditor can garnish wages and bank accounts, and attach non-exempt properties. Any payment agreement is strictly a matter of courtesy on the part of the creditor, and the debtor has no power to decide what the payment will be.

    Best wishes for an outcome you can accept, and please remember to designate a best answer.
