Is a judgment for non payment of permanent alimony lienable or garnishable?
Answer Yes. N.C. does not allow wage garnishment for creditor debt. It does allow garnishment for court ordered spousal maintenance and/or child support.
They can put a lien on your house if own one. Getting a judgment doesn't require you to be there. It does mean that if you default on your payments they can take the property,… put a lien on your home or whatever you have that is of value. I do know they can and will garnish your wages. I am sure in certain circumstances they might be able to check your balances. I'm not real positive about that though. The debtor must get such an agreement in writing signed by all involved parties. If that is done, the creditor cannot take further action to execute a standing judgment without receiving permission from the court where the judgment was entered unless the written agreement contains a default clause (it will!). DO NOT, make any payment by personal check, or release the name of the banking facility, routing numbers, account numbers and most importantly NEVER allow an automatic withdrawal of funds by the a judgment creditor or collector. You are not legally required to do so without a direct order from the court (this includes a creditor holding a judgment).
If you owe back alimony or regularly fail to pay on time, they can get a court order and take the money owed with a garnishment. A garnishment can be up to 50% of your total i…ncome until amount owed is paid.
Alimony payments are ordered by a court or agreed upon by the parties, based on the facts and circumstances of the divorce.

No. If a creditor other than the federal government tries to garnish your Social Security benefits, inform them that such an action violates Section 207 of the Social Security… Act (42 U.S.C. 407).
No, if the lender doesn't receive collateral from you - their only recourse to recover the debt is small claims court. If they do open a claim against you in small claims cour…t and win, the judge could issue a writ of garnishment for a percentage of your social security disability payments - however that is incredibly unlikely. Unless you also have a "day job" source of income, you are not the ideal customer for a payday loan lender - keep that in mind when seeking them.
No. That would violate Federal Law.

If they win they can garnish wages, bank accounts and take other legal actions to recover money that is owed.

It should not matter at all that you are not a US citizen. Put down the amount that serves your financial picture the best. The most conservative way to go is to put 20%… down so that you have equity in the home that should cover the ups and downs of the market. Then, should you have to sell sometime in the future, you would not have to bring money to closing at that time.
