Yes, You Can Include a Judgment in Your Bankruptcy
If you have a prior judgment against you for a tax debt or personal debt owed, you have the option of including the judgment and related collections accounts into your restructured debt repayment plan through Chapter 13 bankruptcy. In some cases, a judgment brought for unsecured debt by a former creditor may also be eliminated or greatly reduced through Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
Avoiding a Judgment or Other Creditors' Actions — Up to the Last Minute
If you are facing a legal proceeding by a creditor seeking to obtain a judgment against you for a debt owed, you can place an automatic stay (stop) on the action by filing Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Under the laws of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, all creditors must immediately stop court actions and work through the debtor's legal representation to seek a resolution for repayment. Even if you are only a day away from the final judgment decision, bankruptcy puts a stop to the action.
