If you have had a debt collection lawsuit filed against you and failed to respond, or responded and lost the case, a court order called a judgment will be entered against you. The creditor can try to collect on the judgment by trying to garnish your wages or taking money from your bank account, but you can take steps to protect your money! Complete this interview to see if you qualify for an exemption and to generate the right papers to assert your rights.
