    The quick and glib answer is that you cannot stop the process. If you were at-fault for the accident, the parties who suffered a loss have the right to collect their damages from the owner of the vehicle and its operator (you). If the parties who suffered a loss cannot collect their damages from the owner of the vehicle, they will collect their damages from you.

    I have a question? I am a single mother of two, I am currently enrolled full time as a student and I am not workig at the time. A credit card company is trying to get a judgement against me for the amount of 1600 dollars owed on a credit card. Six Hundred of that is late fees and interest. The only income I have is my child support and my student loans. I live in Kentucky. Would they be able to put a lein on my car that is in both my name and my dads and get a judgement on my bank acount where the child support and loans are deposited? Would I be able to wait an try to pay off the judgement when I can?

    It is impossible for me to say if you have a lien on your property without examining all of the documentation you have relating to your debt, and in particular the documents that suggest to you that a lien is in place. Accordingly, consult with an attorney in your state who can review your documentation in person.
