As impossible as these challenges may seem, there are circumstances the debtor may face that play to the judgment creditor's favor.
One of these circumstances involves the debtor's credit. Typically, judgments will cause a negative impact on credit scores, which can significantly impact the debtor's livelihood and ability to do things like purchase a house or car. That said, a lot of times debtors will want to raise their credit score. At that point, they're more likely to be ready to work out an arrangement.
Usually, debtors don't realize that judgments act as a lien on any real property they own in the county where the judgment is recorded. As a result, the judgment becomes a barrier for the debtor as he or she won't be able to sell the property without taking care of the judgment.
