CanI fight a judgment thatI didn’t know about?

We had a line of credit that i was paying. The company closed and left no further information. They recently garnished our bank account. They said there had been a judgment against us but we had no knowledge of this since they sent it to an old address. They now say we owe court costs which has doubled the total due. do we still have any choices or do we just have to pay the whole balance?
