CA, is a community property state, meaning debts acquired by one spouse can be attached to the other,
so even if you obtained a judgment against one spouse you can attach the assts of the other spouse,
You need to check if the property has been homesteaded, however, you should be able to lien the property of the spouse,
I landed money to him about 3months ago. He also had another property but transferred the ownership to his son about 13 months ago. I landed money to him about 3months ago and just got the judgment. Can I put a lien on property that got transferred to his son? because I think he intentionally transferred to his son to protect his asset.
would it be easy to prove it's fraud because it's been over 13 months that he transferred the title to his son. I landed money to him only 3months ago? seams like it would be hard to prove it's fraud because it's been done so long ago.
I thought if you purchase a home that has judgment lien attached at auction, the lien follows with the home. But I read and article said"When you purchase property at a foreclosure sale, all junior liens other than property taxes are wiped out." is this true?
If my home is worth 1Mill and the first mortgage was 800,000 and the judgment lien is 300,000, will I get 100,000 homestead examption before paying to judgment lien? or will the judgment lien holder get paid the equity of 200,000 and no money for homestead examption?
You said the creditor would get nothing but if the home get sold at 1mill, there will be 200,000 equity. I will get 100,000 as homestead examption first. And then, the jugement lien holder get paid the rest of the 100,000 no?
Do I have to do any thing to get the homestead examption?
Let's say a home worth $500,000 but there is a judgment lien $300,000 attached to the home. If I buy the the home at auction for $600,000, the judgment lien holder get paid 100,000 and the lien will be removed? not following with the home?
What if I bought the home at auction for 600,000 and the mortgage is 400,000, would the judgment lien holder get 200,000 and the lien will be removed. The lien won't follow with the home anymore?
