You should file the letter after you know that the Creditor intends or does get a Writ of Execution. If the clerk of court does not have a form for the affidavit, you can send a letter stating your claim to the $1000 exemption, your Wife should send a letter stating her 1/2 ownership in the vehicle. The letters should be sent to the Court, the Judgment Creditor, the Judgment Creditor's attorney, and the Sheriff's office. They will have 2-5 days to challenge the exemption, and a hearing would be held if they did object.
