Creditors may certainly look to seize/attach your assets of most types to pay the debts you promised or obligated to pay and don't. They also get to recover any costs for having to act to have you adhere to your legal obligations. However, they must have court authorization to do so, and commonly, other options, like garnishment of wages or liens against the assets (which continue to accrue costs to you), are used first.
