    I'm at a loss as to how you reached that conclusion from what I wrote. I didn't even go so far as to "suggest[] [that] you consult with a bankruptcy attorney" (quoting "PayrollHRGuy"). What I wrote was that you "you might consider consulting with a bankruptcy attorney." Heck...for all I know, $100k might be something for which you could easily scratch off a check today, which, if true, would make consulting with a BK attorney pointless.

    Here are your basic options (not all of which are mutually exclusive):

    1. Do nothing and see what happens.
    2. Run and hide.
    3. Hire a lawyer to review the situation and advise you.
    4. Pay the judgment in full.
    5. Try to negotiate a reduced lump-sum settlement or a payment plan.
    6. File bankruptcy.

    And this has the added benefit of being something that the OP is well practiced in.

    I have no house or any assets yet. Nevertheless, It is odd that they have not made any attempts to seize my paychecks or tried to contact me personally. I have been working and getting paid for about 6 months now, and they could have gathered from my credit report that I am paying my rents for over a year now...

    The USA is a very nice country.

    That said, there are at least 48 other equally nice countries too!
