I RECENTLY FOUND OUT THAT AN ATTORNEY FOR A DEBT THAT I OWE FILED A MOTION TO LEVY MY PERSONAL PROPERTY? THEY DID RECEIVE A JUDGEMENT IN DECEMBER 2018, SO I UNDERSTAND THAT THEY CAN LEVY MY ACCOUNT, BUT I WAS TRYING TO RESOLVE IT, BUT WAS TOLD THAT I COULD NOT SET UP A PAYMENT PLAN NOR COULD I OFFER A SETTLEMENT UNTIL AFTER 30 DAYS. I AM CONFUSED, PLEASE HELP.
No, that will not work. Depending on your overall financial situation, Bankruptcy may be right for you. An experienced TN Bankruptcy attorney will be able to determine which type of Bankruptcy is the correct one for you. Use AVVO's Find a Lawyer tool to select a qualified attorney. Good luck.

While bankruptcy may be an answer, it also may not be the answer. It depends on your circumstances.
If you want to stave off the levy, you could have gone to the Clerk's office of the court where the judgment was granted and asked that the judgment be paid in installments. The court would have held a hearing to determine what the proper payment should be based upon amount of the judgment and your income and assets. You need to local help without delay.
