    Chapter 6:

      Section: 39:6-39: Payment of judgment in installments

           A judgment debtor to whom this chapter applies may, for the sole purpose of giving authority to the director to authorize the judgment debtor to operate a motor vehicle thereafter, on due notice to the judgment creditor, apply to the court in which the trial judgment was obtained for the privilege of paying the judgment in installments. The court, in its discretion and without prejudice to any other legal remedies which the judgment creditor may have, may so order, fixing the amounts and times of payment of the installments. The director may, in his discretion, while the judgment debtor is not in default in paying the installments, restore, or refrain from suspending his license or registration certificate or certificates, or either or both of them. The license or certificate or certificates, or either or both or all of them, shall be suspended as hereinbefore provided when the director is satisfied that the judgment debtor has failed to comply with the terms of the court order.
