The person/creditor that is owed money sues the debtor/borrower in the appropriate state court. If the plaintiff (person owed) wins the suit he or she will be awarded a writ of judgment. Be advised the court will not collect or assist in collection of money owed, that is the responsibility of the judgment holder. A judgment can be used in several ways depending upon the laws of the state where it is awarded. Wage garnishment and bank account levy are the two most common ways of executing a judgment. It can also be used to place liens against real property or have non-exempt assets belonging to the debtor seized and sold. Before initiating a lawsuit it should be determined if the debt is collectible. All states allow debtor exemptions for personal and real property. In many cases the debtor/defendant qualifies as being "judgment proof", meaning there is not property that can be attached and/or sold for debt repayment.

Can someone collect my income tax return for a judgment against me
Answer: To place a lien on someone's property you would need to file a claim in the appropriate court, obtain a judgment (execution) and then have the judgment served on the debtor. The sheriff could sieze the property and effect its transfer to you.

Yes. If someone has gotten a judgment against you & you have failed to pay them, they can file for a wage garnishment also.
Go to your local courthouse. File a small claims court case against the person. Show up in court and present your case.
Laws vary by state and my comments are based on California law. There are many procedures that might apply depending on the type of lien you are referring to. If you have a judgment against someone and you know of a third party who owes money to the judgment debtor, you can obtain a writ of exeuction and have the sheriff levy on that claim or you can file a motion for an assignment order transfer the right of payment to you. If the judgment debtor has a judgment against someone else, you can have that judgment assigned to you can you can then collect that judgment.

Yes, if they file suit and receive a judgment the creditor can execute the judgment as a lien against the debtor's property.
It depends on the reason you did not show up. If you received notice and didn't appear, the court will issue a default judgment against you. If you had no notice and the court has no proof of service then you may be able to file a motion to vacate due to your not being served a summons.
You don't. The Court would file the judgment if it is granted.
File a Motion To Vacate in the court where the judgment was entered against the defendant. Contact the office of the clerk of the court of jurisdiction for information on the procedures and the forms required for filing.
