Thank you for your new question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Any retirement account, 401K, IRA, pension plan, Social Security, would be exempt from garnishment or seizure for satisfaction of a judgment. So you cannot garnish the 401K for the judgment I am afraid.
