Can you own a car if have a civil debt?
If someone has a civil judgment against you, it is possible that
your assets may be ats risk. However, the laws of most states also
protect a portion of your assets. The types an amounts of property
that you can protect from a judgment creditor will vary be state.
However, it is usually not very cost effective for a judgment
creditor to go after the debtor's car. Having a civil judgment on
your credit history will make it more difficult for you to get a
car loan. It will be difficult, but not impossible.
