If a judgment-creditor learns of your above-the-table employer, it can garnish your wages. Customarily, judgment-creditors do so by requesting that information from the judgment-debtor. If the judgment-creditor does not do so, then you are under no obligation to volunteer that information. However, if you are requested to provide that information and do not, you may be found in contempt of court.
If the creditor is a government entity, then it can learn about your employment from the Social Security Administration and may have the authority to garnish your wages administratively.

It is not a good idea to leave a judgment against you linger unresolved. Save what you can each month into a separate bank account.
Read the Bills.com resource about how to negotiate debt. Once you accumulate 20% of the total judgment, contact the judgment-creditor and explain you want to resolve the debt with a lump-sum payment. Start negotiations at 10 cents on the dollar, and if you hit the 20 cents on the dollar amount explain you hit your limit and even that will be a strain.
