Hello again and thanks for writing back. I will be glad to answer your additional questions (in the order presented).
Finally, there is one device I did not mention in my initial answer, which is called a "turn-over order." This permits the Judge to order the Judgment Debtor to turn over non-exempt property to you to satisfy the judgment. For example, if you know the person you sued is receiving a large sum of money from a construction job he is just completing, you can use a turn-over order to have the court order him to pay some of that money to you. This is a rather complex procedure under Texas law and would require an attorney.
I hope this is of some more help. Take care and thanks again for using Just AnswerTM.
