Best Answer

The creditor has won a lawsuit judgment against the debtor(s) and can execute the judgment against any nonexempt property belonging to the debtor(s). The preferred method of judgment execution is wage garnishment followed by bank account levy, or seizure and sale of nonexempt property or a lien against real property. North Carolina, South Carolina, Pennsylvania and Texas do not allow wage garnishment for creditor debt. The exception is Texas where the court can grant wage garnishment if the debtor has no other property for which the judgment can be executed against. Married couples living in community property states are both usually responsible for debts incurred during the marriage regardless of which spouse is the account holder or borrower.
