How do you avoid judgments against your home in Texas?
The debtor would need to pay the debt owed or make a settlement or payment with the creditor who is threatening or has initiated a lawsuit, Judgments cannot be "avoided" when they are in connection with a valid debt.
No. A judgment creditor can place a lien against real property but a forced sale of a homestead is not possible. Texas is one of the few states that has a constitutional statute that directly forbids the forced sale of a primary residence for creditor debt. No, Texas has a specific statute which directly forbids the forced sale of a homestead for creditor judgments.

Does the Homestead Declaration in the State of Texas protect you from losing your home in a lawsuit?
If the deceased had unsatisfied debts or judgments against them - AND - liens had been properly filed against him and his assets, then the heir (or new purchaser) took possession of the property 'SUBJECT TO' the existing encumbrance (i.e.: liens). The deceased's estate is responsible for paying the liens and if one of the assets of the estate was the residence, then the home CAN be sold to satisfy the pre-existing outstanding debt.
If someone else's name is on the deed knowone along with yours can creditors force the sale of the home or attach a lien to the home?
This is a complicated question. Briefly: It depends on who owned the property at the time the debt was created and who signed the contract agreeing to pay the debt. For example, if two people own a home and have a joint credit card debt the creditor can file a successful judgment lien. If one person owns a home, has a credit card debt and THEN adds another person to the title, the creditor can…
That depends on the size of the home; a 2,000 SQ foot home can hold a large amount (more if it has a garage).

Can a lien be placed against a house in Texas for a car that was purchased in California and then repossessed in Texas?
Yes. The creditor can sue the debtor in Texas and use a judgment award to place a lien against property belonging to the debtor. I'm not a lawyer and would encourage you to call one. But I believe the previous answer is incomplete. If you reside in Texas, and you LIVE in the home in question, a judgment award cannot really be used against that property. If they put a lien on the house, all…

If I own my home free and clear then purchased a 2nd home for my daughter who did not make the payments and is now in foreclosure can that mortgage co take my first home too?
Not unless you used your home as collateral to buy the 2nd home. If your home was not involved in the transaction they can not take it. Some states allow a lender to persue a borrower for defficiency balance if the foreclosed home sells for less than is owed, which means you could be sued and have judgments placed against you. Technically it is possible for lien to be placed on your home in some…
Can you move in with your girlfriend's family while attending school and still be legal if you are 17 and live in the state of Texas?
Many states allow deficiency judgments in one kind of foreclosure, but not another. Often, a deficiency can be pursued in a judicial foreclosure, but not if a power of sale clause is used to auction a home outside of the court process. Homeowners should look up their own state laws and type of foreclosure being used against them. The following list should be taken as a guide and not as legal advice or as particularly…
