It is certainly possible, but not a given. More information is needed than you have provided. I suggest the minor contact an attorney to discuss all the details of his/her situation.See question

I received a civil summons for a credit card debt but I am unable to find out where I can get a form to answer the summons. What information do I need to include in my answer, so that a default judgement is not taken against me?
An attorney cannot answer this question without knowing, among other things, what court the complaint is filed in, what the allegations against you are (to allege affirmative defenses), and when the complaint was served on you. You will have to speak directly to an attorney (and possibly pay the attorney for their advice) in order to get the answers you seek. Be very wary of anyone who would try to answer the questions you have asked without knowing the answers to the questions I have posed above. I recommend contacting a lawyer or lawyers and discussing with them whether they can serve as defense counsel on your behalf. Best of luck.See question
How much time I have and how do I answer a Motion For Summary Judgment in Pima C.C. In Arizona?
Regarding how much time you have to respond, I am including a hyperlink for the rules of the Superior Courts in Arizona. However, you do not say what court you are in, so this may not be accurate. This should be a helpful starting point for you.
I strongly encourage you to hire an attorney in your jurisdiction to assist you.

I won a court judgement in 2008, i am yet to recceive a cent. Can i charge 10% intrest monthly on the judgement. Is this legal in the state of Georgia?
It depends. Under OCGA sec. 7-4-12 judgments in Georgia shall bear interest upon the principal amount recovered at the rate of 12 percent per year unless the judgment is rendered on a written contract or obligation providing for interest at a specified rate, in which case the judgment shall bear interest at the rate specified in such contract or obligation. So, you may charge 12 percent per year unless you obtained the judgment on a written contract or obligation which provided for a specific interest rate. In that case, you can charge the interest rate specified in the written contract or obligation.See question
My husband and I are both unemployed, without likelihood of future employment. This circumstance has forced him to collect early Social Security, and that is currently our sole source of income. Can this money be seized by debt collectors. An e...
Generally, Social Security benefits are exempt from execution, levy, attachment, garnishment, or other legal process, or from the operation of any bankruptcy or insolvency law.
The following benefits are exceptions and subject to garnishment:
(1) to the authority of the Secretary of the Treasury to make levies for the collection of delinquent Federal taxes and under certain circumstances delinquent child support payments; and
(2) to garnishment or similar legal process brought by an individual to enforce a child support or alimony obligation.
However, you should check with a lawyer in your state to make sure there are not some local laws that affect your situation. I cannot say with certainty that your social security cannot be garnished, but generally speaking it shouldn't be garnishable.See question

Under the FDCPA a debt collector must contact a debtor before "9 o'clock postmeridian." However, under specific state laws, this time may be different, so I do not know what your legal rights might be under state law.See question

Search your state's bar membership directory or contact your state bar directly to see if they refer potential clients to attorneys. If so, ask if they know of any debt collection defense attorneys who might be able to represent you. Also, you might go to the naca.net website and search for an attorney on there that might be able to defend you in such a matter.See question
