Judgment collection laws vary by state, but the law laws in most states give the creditor broad discretion on how to enforce the judgment. In California for example, there is no law against putting a lien on the debtor's home before, during or after the wage garnishment. * In the majority of cases a single judgment cannot run concurrently nor can the single same judgment be executed as multiple methods of "cure". The exception is child support and/or federal or some state tax arrearages.

A home cannot be garnished. Your wages or bank account could be garnished. Your home would be liened. Whether or not a lien can be placed depends on who is seeking funds from you and why.

NO. In S.C. they can not garnish your wages if you have a judgement of a lien. It will go on your credit report, but no garnishments.

A judgment against one partner has the potential to affect both parties. The person who placed the judgment can have wages garnished, place a lien on your home or get a court order to access your bank accounts.

You may have to try a lien. Only a certain percentage of pay can be garnished & they are probably at the max.

Your wages will be garnished or bank account levied or any real property you own will have a lien filed against it, until you can pay it off.

Yes. Texas is a community property state, and all income earned by both spouses is property of the community. Because of this, technically your wages are also his wages and the IRS can go after them.

User Avatar

yes....after they obtain a judgment in court...they can put a lien on your home, file an abstract against your social security number and attach wages and bank accounts...

Texas only allows wage garnishment if the debt cannot be collected by other means (bank account levy, seizure and sale of nonexempt property, lien against real property). Wages can be garnished when the matter is one of child support.

In the state of Washington, yes. Washington is a community property state. I don't know if that makes a difference, but you can contact your local court, or contact the lien holder.

Very much likely. how many other creditors already began garnishing your wages (they have to stand in line for the garnished money), what assets you have (they might find it more worth their time to go after your assets like property lien or even a bank levy. YES IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA, IF YOU GET A JUDGEMENT AGAINST YOU. YOU CAN GET GARNISHED UP TO 25% ON EVERY CHECK BEFORE TAXES.

Only once, but it is good until the lien is satisfied.

Yes, your paycheck can be garnished without being notified. I was devastated when I received my paycheck and behold I had been garnished. (garnishment May 2010) In the state of Georgia incur Deduction of 25% of my gross income. I had judicial lien from creditor (which I don't recall) since 2006. Also, shown on my credit report this account as being charged off in 2003. In result of being garnished, it has cause an tremendous economic burden and hardship on me. Best thing, I would suggest always check your credit report!

You can put 'a lien' on a home in The Bahamas.

Perhaps, or the ganishee may reside in a state where the garnisher is required to refile for a writ of garnishment after the specified time limit has expired. Contacting the clerk of the court where the garnishment order was granted will obtain the information needed by the garnished debtor.

== == A lien is registered either at the county or State level, and it prevents a property from being sold until the amount of the lien is paid off in full to the lienholder. By doing a lien search, you can find out the amount of the lien, and who holds it.

No a home with a lien on it cannot be sold. A lien gives first right to the property to the creditor.

1) your wages may be "garnished" by a creditor through a legal procedure. 2) YES, if the garnishment procedure determines your wages are adequate to have multiple forced payments deducted (while you still can sustain a basic standard of living - reflected by the legal procedure), then you can have multiple garnishments (ie. by multiple creditors - a single creditor only would do the garnishment procedure once for multiple accounts you might have with them) against your wages.

Yes you may given that there is proof of with held back wages.
