What Personal Property Can be Seized After a Judgment?
When a court enters a money judgment against a person, the court is essentially ordering the debtor to pay a sum of money to the creditor. If the debtor does not pay the judgment, the creditor may ask the court to allow them to seize some of the debtor's personal property in order to satisfy the debt.
There are certain types of personal property that can be seized after a judgment. These include: wages, bank accounts, cars, and other forms of transportation, furniture, jewelry, and other valuables. The amount that can be seized depends on the state in which the debtor resides.
Wages are often times the first thing that is seized after a judgment. The creditor may request that the debtor's employer withhold a certain amount from each paycheck until the debt is paid off.
