Does the debtor list what he is seeking to exempt, other than stating it is a Business Checking Account? Does he say how much is in the account? And which form are you using - it should have one or two letters and a number, and it will be on the bottom right hand side of the form.
The account has $7000.00 in it.
He has filed a motion with our Judge and filed the exemption to have the $7000.00 returned to him from the Sherrifs department siting it is exempt because it is his business acount and he can't run his business if I take that money.
He has just liquidated his stock portfolio and told our judge he has $450,000.00 in a bank account.
The form I am using is the
EJ70 form for the objection to the exemtion
and the EJ75 I believe it is that is the objection and motion for the hearing
That was what the sherrifs department said I should use.
Thank you for the additional information. Please pardon the delay; I was looking for the forms - I wanted to make sure you were using the correct ones. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find a set in my forms library.
I do know you are going to want to check 5(B), based on what you described about the judgment debtor's assets.
Can you tell me what #6 says, or give me a link to a website with those forms so I can give you the proper information?
i gave you the wrong form
EJ 170 - Notice of Opposition to claim of exemption
EJ 175 - Notice of Hearing on Claim of Exemption
The form they filed was the EJ 160 - Blaim of Exemption (Enforcement of Judgment)
I got all these forms off the
Los Angeles Family Court Forms
and I clicked all forms
and clicked by number
and scrolled down
No wonder I couldn't find them!
First of all, I'd like to make sure you know about this website: www.courtinfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/forms.cgi. That website has a whole set of fillable forms. To look for collection-related forms, use your website browser search function to look for "EJ-"; some of the forms start with AT.
For item #6 on the form, you are going to want to describe what you just told me about the $450,000 in liquid assets. Here is the fillable form for you: http://www.courtinfo.ca.gov/forms/fillable/ej170.pdf
Unfortunately, the EJ-175 isn't fillable on line. Do remember to call the Court and reserve a hearing date that is at least 14 court days from the date you will personally serve the Notice of Motion. If you are serving by mail, add 5 calendar days to the 14 court day notice. Here is a link to the Court day calculator: http://www.lasuperiorcourt.org/CourtDateCalculator/
Thank you so much
Is there a way to work with you directly on questions I have and pay you?
I have more each day as to how to collect ;a judgement
Yes, there is - thank you for asking. At the beginning of the question, put "for Anne_C". I will see it, or one of my colleagues will let me know it is there.
I will look forward to hearing from you again.
