If a judgment is entered against you in a county where you don't reside does the creditor have to file a new lawsuit in the county where you do reside?

No, once the judgment is granted, it applies to you, not your county. All they need is your new address. * Perhaps. If the judgment holder wants to enforce the judgment in a method other than filing an abstract judgment against the debtor's real property then the creditor will have to file a suit in the county where the debtor resides. Judgments granted in one county or state can only be transferred to another county or state as liens against real property owned by the debtor.


How do you collect on a civil judgment?

By executing the judgment against real and personal property belonging to the judgment debtor in accordance with the laws of the state where the debtor resides and/or owns property. You file the execution of the writ of judgment with the clerk of the court in the county and state where the judgment was entered and the debtor resides In some situtations a 'foreign judgment' can be executed against real property owned by the debtor that is located in a different state then the debtor's residential state.


How do you collect a judgment when the judgment debtor resides in a different state?

File a "foreign judgment" against the real property owned by the judgment debtor. This is done by contacting the tax assessor/land office in the county where the debtor resides. If the debtor does not have real property that can be encumbered by a lien, the judgment holder will need to secure a domestic judgment (requires another suit) from the state court in the county where the debtor resides to seize personal property or garnish wages for the repayment of the debt.


How do you find out if a judgment lien has been placed against property?

Check the records in the land recorder or tax assessors office in the city or county where the property is located.


How we find out if there is a judgment against our property?

The local register of deeds should have an index of liens, foreclosures and other judgments against properties recorded there (for the municipality or county).


How do you get a copy of judgment?

If you are one of the named parties either as plaintiff or defendant, you can contact the clerk of the circuit court in the county in which the judgment was granted to for information on the procedure for obtaining copies of legal documents. If you wish to find out if a judgment is in place against real property you can do so by searching the public records of the state's revenue/taxation department in the county where the property is located.


How do you place a lien on someone's home?

First, you have to have performed professional improvments to the home. It generally can't be for amateur work, it has to be contractors only. Next there is usually a time limit, and if that time limit has expired, it's too late. Last, you fill out a form and record it with the county recorders office... At least that's the process in most states. If you are a lender, the homeowner/borrow would need to sign a promissory note and sign a deed of trust or mortgage against the property. If someone owes you money and fails to pay, you need to obtain a judgment by suing them in court. Once you have a judgment, you can get a judgment lien from the court and record it to create a lien on any real property in the judgment debtor's name. Sometimes this is called an abstract of judgment. They file appropriate papers with the deed in the county courthouse. I believe that all jurisdictions require that the property owner be notified of the lien. *The only type of lien that can be placed against property without a court judgment is a Mechanic's Lien. A Mechanic's Lien can be filed by a contractor, subcontractor, building materials supplier, laborer, etc. that has done repairs of improvement on the property for which the lien is being sought. The lien is placed against the property by the petitioner filing out the required forms and supplying the necessary documents to prove the claim valid, in the office of the county clerk or the county recorder's office in the state and county where the property is located. File a lawsuit in the appropriate state court. If the plaintiff wins the case, a judgment is entered against the debtor/defendant and in most instances a judgment can be executed as a lien against real property owned by the debtor. A Mechanic's Lien is filed at the office of the County Recorder using filing procedure as required by state law in the county in which the property is located.


How do you file a judgment against another person?

The individual wishing to obtain a writ of judgment must follow due process of law as required by the state in which the judgment is to be filed. Generally that would mean the person owed the debt (plaintiff) would file a civil suit in the appropriate state court against the debtor (defendant). If the issue is one of a Mechanic's Lien against real property owned by the debtor, the person to whom money is owed can contact the county recorder/assessor's office in the county where the property is located for information on how to file a claim.


Exactly what types of professional persons are allowed to place liens on property in Florida?

Any person who is owed a valid debt by a property owner can file suit and if awarded a judgment can enforce that judgment as a lien against real property owned by the debtor. If the debt owed qualifies under the laws relating to Mechanic's Liens, then the person or business that is owed the monies does not need to follow due process through the court but can file such a lien with the county recorder's office in the county where the encumbered property is located. However, as a general rule, Florida has unlimited homestead exemption, which does not negate the rights of a creditor to place a lien against the property but it does prevent the forced sale of said property in order for the judgment holder to collect the debt.


If you have a judgment in New York can a Florida court enforce it and seize your bank account?

A bank account would not be subject to seizure. The winning plaintiff could file an Abstract of Judgment with the county recorder's office in the county where the defendant resides. Such a judgment can only be used as a lien against real property. Florida allows unlimited homestead exemption. therefore depending on the specific circumstances, a lien could be "lifted" by a joint property owner or in some other way be declared invalid.


How long does a civil judgment last in New York state?

The usual time limit is ten years at a maximum of 8% interest. N.Y. does not allow most judgments to be renewed. A judgment in New York is valid for twenty years. During that time it can enforced against a judgment debtor's income and assets. A lien of a judgment resulting from the docketing of a judgment with the County Clerk is good for ten years, and can be renewed for another ten years.


If you move to Massachusetts can your wages still be garnished for a repossession in Oklahoma?

Yes, but the creditor would have to sue in the debtor's state court in the county where the debtor resides and if awarded a judgment execute the writ under the laws of Massachusetts not Oklahoma. If the judgment creditor already holds a writ of judgment in Oklahoma they can file it as an abstract judgment against the debtor's real property without the necessity of court procedure.

How does one file a lien?

A Mechanic's lien is filed by going to the city or county recorder's office with the documentation required by the state where the property is located. To file a lien against a debtor for other purposes, the lender must sue the borrower and then enforce the judgment award as a lien against real property belonging to the person in question.


What happens when a judgment is fileled against you can thy take any of your property?

i live in Louisiana a hospital is try to sue me for a dept if they gain a judgment against me can they take any of my property If a judgment is assessed against you, they can take your property. Depending on the type of suit and who the judgment creditor is, collections on judgment can be in the form of garnishments ( served upon your employer to hold your wages or even your bank accounts), to the judgment being recorded in the county you reside which will result in your not being able to buy or sell a home (or buy one for that matter) until the judgment is paid in full. Should you die before the money is collected, "they" can also collect the proceeds from your estate before any money is disbursed to your family. Best advice - contact an attorney in your area (check the yellow pages for a general practioner or litigation attorney) hopefully they will be able to negotiate a settlement (reduced amount) and have the judgment set aside - or even file a motion to stay collection proceedings while they work on an appeal for you. Good luck!


In Virginia how do you file a lawsuit to garnish your daughter's wages?

If she is an adult the same process is used to file a civil suit against anyone. The lawsuit is filed in the jurisdictional court in the county where she resides. Contact the office of the clerk of the circuit court (or perhaps small claims) for filing information. If you prevail a judgment will be entered against the defendant/daughter and the judgment may or may not be enforced as a wage garnishment depending upon the laws of the state in which the debtor/defendant resides.


Is a judgment considered a civil proceeding?

Judgments can be entered by the court in either civil or criminal cases. Today, most courts in the US are courts of general jurisdiction, meaning they can hear any type of case. In larger counties usually a courtroom is devoted just to criminal cases and another to civil cases, but the judges usually take turns, rotating from time to time. Broadly speaking there are only civil and criminal cases, but some states create a third category, sometimes called "special proceedings" or something similar, for adoptions, involuntary commitments to mental care, foreclosures of mortgages, and other odd sorts of cases. If a court enters a judgment in a civil case it goes on the judgment docket of the county in which the judgment was rendered. If the judgment included an award of money damages, payment of court costs of the other party, or payment to the court for its costs, those financial awards can be enforced for a number of years, often ten. This is an "execution" on the judgment and can be had only against the assets of the party against whom the judgment was issued, and only those assets in the county where the judgment is docketed. A plaintiff who wins a lawsuit, gets a judgment docketed, and a few years later learns that the defendant has assets in another county, can have a "transcript of judgment" sent from the county where the judgment was won to the county where the defendant has assets, and have the judgment added to the docket where the assets are located, and then may proceed to try to collect where the assets are through an execution. In practice this is seldom done. Most states allow a judgment debtor to "exempt from execution" some of his property - so much in dollar value of the home where he lives, so much value in an automobile, so much in tools of the trade, and so on. In practice it is very difficult for plaintiffs to locate assets of the defendant and have them seized and sold by the county sheriff and the money obtained applied toward the judgment. Other than by insurance companies, most judgments get paid, if they get paid at all, when the judgment debtor goes to try to get a loan on a house in the county where the judgment is docketed. If the judgment debtor has land (including a house, or not) in the county where the judgment is docketed, or acquires land afterward (so long as it is within the period when the judgment may still be collected), the judgment instantly becomes a lien on that land, just like a mortgage. Therefore before the bank will make a loan the bank will require a "title search" which will disclose from the county records any judgments lodged against the borrower. To get the loan to buy the house, the judgment will have to be paid. After ten years judgments can be renewed, very easily, but most plaintiffs do not bother.


If you are given a judgment by the court and the defendant disappears what can you do?

Have the judgment recorded with the recorder's office in whatever state and county you are in. It won't help you collect on the judgment, but if that person tries to sell or buy property there will be a lien that will have to be cleared up prior to doing either.


How do you garnish wages in New York?

File suit against the debtor in the appropriate state court in the county where the debtor resides. If the plaintiff wins a judgment they can execute the judgment as a wage garnishment against the debtor. New York allows a maximum of 25% garnishment of disposable income by a judgment creditor.


What is the right way to put a lien on a person's property that has a court order to pay you restitution of 50000 dollars?

How do you put a lien on a car that has a loan in your name but is titled to someone else?

File suit in the appropriate state court in the county in which registered owner resides. If a judgment is granted it can be executed as a lien against the vehicle according to the laws of the judgment debtor's state. The lender is the primary lien holder if the vehicle has been used as collateral and a secondary lien can be enforced without the lender's release after the lending agreement has been completed.

How do you place a lien on a house?

This is best answered by a Real Estate attorney. There are several different liens that can be put on a home and they can best guide you how to do that. If you dont have the money for that then call your local court house and ask the clerk of the court what your options are. If the debt was incurred due to repairs or improvement on the property itself a Mechanic's Lien can be filed against the property in the office of the county clerk or recorder of deeds in the county where the property is located. This type of lien can be filed by a contractor, subcontractor, building materials supplier, laborer, a person who supplied the labor or material to improve the property through repairs or additional construction. This type of lien does not apply to a loan obtained to do the actual repair or improvements. If the lien is for any other type of debt (credit card, personal loan, promissory contract, etc.) the person seeking recovery for a debt must sue the debtor in the appropriate state court, receive a judgment against the debtor and execute the judgment as a lien against property or the portion of property that is owned by the debtor.
