Small Claim/ Civil Garnishment: If a creditor gets a judgment against a garnishee for failure to comply (not filing a garnishee answer), and the garnishee pays judgment in full, Can the garnishee then go after the Debtor for these funds?
answered on Jul 26, 2022

That said, if you have a record you made the payment, you should notify the Court right away that you have paid it and... Read more »

That’s quite a tale, but there is no question posed for anyone to answer.
Try reposting this with a specific legal question stated clearly either first or last.

While that is a clever idea, you would not be able to require payment. There are ways in which you can legally deter Creditors from calling, but doing so many encourage them to file a lawsuit. Consult with experiences attorneys.

Anything you own or in your name is subject to the judgments snd liens granted to those creditors. You probably need a lawyer to help you negotiate these out.
If a creditor sued me and received default judgment then recorded it with the county, but later closed the account do I still have to pay them when selling the house?

But later closed the account? You mean like a credit card? Yes, you have to pay the judgment.

I want to know what is the first best route to start this legally. Should I arbitrate or go to court...based on not much experience.

An Arizona attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. There could be provisions in your agreement that address arbitration. Some contracts have clauses that require arbitration over court - some contracts do not have such clauses. Good luck
