§ 31-32-17. Installment payment of judgments.

(a) A judgment debtor, upon due notice to the judgment creditor, may apply to the court in which the judgment was rendered for the privilege of paying the judgment in installments.

(b) The division of motor vehicles shall not suspend a license, registration, or nonresident’s operating privilege, and shall restore any license, registration, or nonresident’s operating privilege suspended following nonpayment of a judgment, when the judgment debtor gives proof of financial responsibility and obtains an order permitting the payment of the judgment installments, and while the payment of any installments is not in default.
