If a Judge gives an order in open court that a person must start making payments on a Judgment starting July 1st but no actual written order has been entered yet must the person start paying the Judgment in order to not be held in contempt? I was told until the Judgment was filed, it wasn’t enforceable? Is that true?
We are looking at filing motion for new trial or in the alternative filing an appeal. Does the motion for new trial stop the person from having to make payments on the judgment until the trial is held? July 1st is next week therefore we kind of need an answer as soon as possible.
Thank you so much for your help.
