What you should do before the Sheriff comes a knocking is to ask for an extension of time to pay the judgement off so that he or she does not come and seize your non-exempt property to sell and satify the judgement.  Then pay off the judgement and get a satisfaction.  Consider having an attorney be the middle person for payment and receipt of satisfaction.  This way you are covered.  Good luck.

Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved.
