Resolved Question:

I have a civil judgement for $8000 against an individual living in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. I live about 250 miles away. How can I find out if this person has any assets (real or personal) I can attach?

You can request a hearing in court, called a citation to discover assets in the court where you obtained the judgment. It will request the debtor to provide information about assets (homes, bank accounts etc, and income they are receiving). Each state has a list of exemptions to protect some assets from judgment.
