Yes, you can file for bankruptcy and this will essentially trump the judgement. To file a bankruptcy you first need to sit down with a licensed trustee. They will evaluate your sitaution to make sure that you are eligible as well as outline all the in’s and out of the process. As your court hearing is coming fairly quickly I would encourage you to begin contacting the trustee sooner than later.
