If a Judgement Was Entered against Me?

Answer

If a judgement was entered against you the judgment creditor dockets the judgment with the clerk of the court and then proceeds to enforce it in whatever manner is allowed under the laws of the debtor's state. Some methods that can be used by the creditor are, wage garnishment or bank account levy or seizure and sale of non exempt property or a lien against real property or the portion owned by the judgment debtor. It would be prudent for the judgment debtor to become knowledgeable in the personal and real property exemptions allowed for their state, especially important is the homestead exemption which helps protect a primary residence from a forced sale by a judgment creditor.
