If you are talking about a payment to a judgment creditor as a consequence of a civil law suit, either call them or their attorney to see if you can agree to lower payments. If you cannot get an agreement with the party or his/her attorney, you might consider a bankruptcy. Hire an attorney for this as it can be important which chapter you file. If you are referring to a judgment for restitution, see your probation officer (PO) and try and talk him or her into reducing the monthly amount. If the PO will not agree to a lower amount, set a court date. You should also fill out judicial counsel for CR 115 which you can find on line.
