The defendant debtor can negotiate with the plaintiff creditor up until the time the judge awards a judgment for the debt owed, and sometimes after a judgment has been handed down. Often the presiding judge will request the two parties meet with an indpendent mediator to attempt to settle the issue without it being necessary for the court to make a decision. A judgment is issued after the case has been heard. If the debtor has already received a notice of final judgment that would indicate that the plaintiff creditor has won the case and can execute the judgment in the time and in the way the laws of the state allows. It is in the best interest of the judgment debtor to try and reach a settlement with the judgment creditor. Some creditors will negotiate for a lesser amount even after a judgment award just to have the matter finished, but many will not if they believe they can collect a larger amount by letting the judgment stand. Judgments can be valid 5 to 20 years and many are renewable, they will continue to accrue interest until they are paid or settled and the debtor can end up owing considerably more then the original debt.
It depends on the reason you did not show up. If you received notice and didn't appear, the court will issue a default judgment against you. If you had no notice and the court has no proof of service then you may be able to file a motion to vacate due to your not being served a summons.

A judgment cannot be entered against anyone until due process of law has been followed. The person (plaintiff) seeking restitution must file a lawsuit in the appropriate state court. The person sued (defendant) is then served a summons to appear on the date noted to answer the suit. If the plaintiff does not appear the case is dismissed. If the defendent does not appear the usual procedure is for a default judgment to be entered into the court record in favor of the plaintiff.
Only if it has gone to court, served you with the complaint and gotten a judgment against you. If it has gotten the judgment, the agency must still make application through the courts to get the wage garnishment.

No, the creditor does by having you served. You may be served in person by a process server. If this is not possible. you may be served by certified mail. If you refuse to accept the mail. The creditor can have you served by public notice, often in the local newspaper. If you do not happen to get the paper, or do not see the notice, too bad. It is a legal form of service, and the creditor will receive a default judgment when you do not show for the court date.
