State/Country relating to question: Florida
Is your business a corporation or limited liability company? Would the judgment be against you personally or the business? How would pay the judgment?
s type corporation. Judgment would be against the business. How would the judgment be paid. Can they garnish my business checking account to pay the judgment or can they put leins on my personal property in my personal name?
If the judgment is against the business, then they will be able to levy on the business checking account to pay the judgment. They will also be able to levy on the other business assets. If the judgment is not on you personally they will not be able to go after your personal assets.
