What Personal Property Can be Seized After a Judgment?
A judgment is a court order that is the result of a lawsuit. Once a judgment is entered, the court will issue orders that allow the seizure of certain types of personal property to satisfy the debt. The types of property that can be seized after a judgment include:
1. Wages and salaries: A wage garnishment is an order from the court that requires an employer to withhold a portion of an employee's wages and pay it directly to the creditor.
2. Personal assets: This includes property such as jewelry, furniture, and even automobiles. The sheriff or marshal will seize the property and sell it at auction, with the proceeds going to pay off the debt.
3. Bank accounts: The court can freeze bank accounts and require the bank to turn over any funds in them to satisfy the debt.
