Can A Judgment Creditor Take My Car?
If you are facing a lawsuit and have been ordered to pay damages, you may be wondering if a judgment creditor can take your car. The answer is yes, in some cases. A judgment creditor, who is usually the person or entity that won the lawsuit against you, has certain rights to collect on the debt after they receive an official judgment from court.
In order for a judgment creditor to take your car, they must first prove that it meets certain criteria set out by the court as “exempt” property. This means that it would not be subject to seizure by creditors and therefore cannot be taken away from you in this manner. Examples of exempt property include items such as necessary clothing and furniture, tools of trade or work-related items, and vehicles up to a certain value depending on state laws.
