More details to this question:
It has been 4 days since the judgment was made by the judge. The court clerks office said I would have to do my own research on this as they can't provide any legal advice. The plaintiff has called me and cursed at me and threatened further legal action aganst me. I plan to pay it but not any sooner than I have to do it.

You have 10 days after the judgment is filed.  During that time the creditor is not allowed to collect the judgement to give you time to post a bond for 125% of the Judgment and file an appeal.  If you do both, the creditor cannot collect until the appeal is decided.  If you do not do both, after ten days, the creditor can garnish wages or bank accounts, levy (have the sheriff seize and sell) on non-exempt property, or compel you to come back to court to give testimony about your assets and finances.

Breach of Contract
A contract is a legally enforceable agreement between two parties. When you enter into a contract, you do it in good faith and expecting that the other party will meet its legal obligations. But if that fails to occur, you or your business may have grounds for a breach of contract lawsuit against the other party. If successful, you may be awarded damages, or compensation for your losses and expenses in connection with the breached contract. The court can also rescind the contract or order the party that breached the contract to fulfill its obligations. If you're party to a breached contract--whether you've been accused of a breach or are trying to compel the other side to perform its duties--you need to hire an attorney who has experience with personal, professional and/or commercial contractual disputes.
