Legal Question

Asked on: 6/22/10, 5:23 pm

I am in California and have a bankruptcy question. I have recently had a judgment entered against me for an unsecured debt. I know it was entered back in April (from a review of the court docket) but have not seen an abstract of judgment.

I am afraid they may try a bank garnishment at some point, hence my thought of going Chapter 7. Can I get this judgment discharged, and if so, how much time do I have before I would not be able to discharge it (I heard 90 days from date of entry of judgment, but am uncertain).

Thanks so much for any advice on this issue.
