I recently received a notice of motion to turn over funds. Back in 2015, Apparently there was a court date - that I did not know about, and they put a judgement against me. they also levied my bank account back then and wiped my bank account clean. Then I was scared, so i set up a payment plan, which I don't think they every set up. I totally forgot about it and in fact don't have it on my credit report and have been in a good place financially and finally getting to a good place. I simply need to know what my options are, do I call the lawyers will they allow me to go onto a payment plan? do I not have a choice? will they take my new car that I saved up for years? Mind you I have 3 children I need to support and cleaning out my bank account will cause a large issue for me.
It never hurts to call and ask the other attorneys if you can set up a payment plan. If they have filed a Motion to turn over funds, that means they already levied on your account and froze it. You should have called them as soon as your account was frozen. The other side is under no obligation to make any deals with you, but most collection firms I have dealt with would rather set up a payment plan than chase after you.
