, If you are self-employed, then you don't have any wages that could be garnished in Texas.
However, the courts could theoretically seize your assets or go after your bank account to collect on the judgment. The same would be true whether you live in Arizona or Texas.
If the judgment is domesticated in Texas and you are in Arizona by the time it is is domesticated, then it would need to be transferred to Arizona before any collection efforts could take place.
ok, my main concern now is these "judgments" effecting the new owner of the business which will be taking over Nov 1st.. how can these "judgments" effect them?
also when say suing someone in small claims court.. is it that easy? you just pay the $50 then fill out a form and wait? or is there more involved? like more fees or do I need to show up etc? and do I need to confirm with a Puerto rican lawyer that i can actually so this?
