Will Bankruptcy Stop a Judgement?

The judgement, if it is in place already, would be a judgement that can be discharged. Usually for credit card debt or any other kind of debt, with the exception of family debt, like alimony or child support. If there is a judgement on its way, for example you’re in the midst of a foreclosure, then that particular proceeding will be stayed pending the outcome of the bankruptcy. If you have discharged your debt on a house, then the foreclosure could proceed after your bankruptcy is complete, but it would only be to secure the house and clear the title. It would not impact you personally.
