Ask a Landlord-Tenant Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray and will be the expert helping you tonight.You need the bank and the account number here.It has to be specific so the bank will seize the funds and pay you here in Texas.
You can set a debtor exam in the court you got judgment and ask for bank account numbers here and other assets under oath.The only other way to get such information would be if you have credit bureau access to get the account number..
GARNISHMENT IN TEXAS
Debtor exam is done through interrogatories here and then motion to compel or contempt..
Written interrogatories in aid of a judgment are a set of written questions that the judgment creditor prepares and mails to the judgment debtor.
The purpose of the questions are to collect information about the debtor's financial situation. The goal is finding nonexempt debtor assets that can be seized and then sold by auction to pay the judgment. The judgment creditor can ask any question that may lead to the discovery of nonexempt assets.
The debtor must answer the questions in writing, under oath, within 30 days of receiving the creditor's interrogatories. Failing to reply within the time limit puts the judgment debtor in a position where the court may order answers. Continuing to refuse the answers after a court order, can sometimes result in the judgment debtor being jailed for contempt of court.
This would be the next steps to force disclosure so you can proceed to get garnishment.
I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Please let me know if you have more follow up.Thanks again.
