Is it legal in Texas if you had a car repossessed about 2 years ago and now the law office has put a lien against your home making it unable for you to refinance your home?

The lien is valid if due process of law was followed correctly. Meaning the party involved was sued, the plaintiff won the case, was awarded a judgment and executed the judgment as a lien against the defendant's property. During all these legal 'steps' the defendant should have received notification and time to respond. Undoubtedly the lien represents the deficiency and fees incurred when the repossessed vehicle was sold. There might possibly be an appeal on grounds the suit and/or judgment was faulty and therefore the lien is not valid. This requires research as to the data contained in the lawsuit petition, writ of judgment, and any other contributing factors. To obtain copies of the lawsuit and judgment documents the party involved can contact the clerk or administrator of the court where the writ of judgment was issued.

Is judgment proof legal in Kentucky?

"Judgment-proof" means that even if a plaintiff obtains its civil judgment against its defendant, the defendant has no assets from on which the court can levy in proceedings in aid of execution to satisfy the judgment. It also generally implies that as a result the defendant is not worth being sued, because the possibility of ultimately recovering a money judgment is nil.Added: There is no such legal principle as judgment proof. It is not a defense to a lawsuit. One can obtain a judgment against a defendant, regardless of the ability to collect the judgment. Plaintiffs often choose to proceed against defendants who appear to be judgment proof because they believe that the defendant will eventually have assets or income against which to collect.You are correct. The status of being judgment-proof is as a matter of fact and not a matter of law. Which is why I used the word "implied" and not the word "holds". Therefore, it is legal to the extent that as a matter of fact the judgment cannot be satisfied.
