J.Hazelbaker :

Hello. Thank you for using JustAnswer.

J.Hazelbaker :

You can ask the court in which your judgment was entered to hold a "judgment debtor exam".

J.Hazelbaker :

When a judgment debtor refuses/fails to respond, the judge can force them into court at your request and force them to answer questions under oath about their assets.

J.Hazelbaker :

During the exam, you can ask where they bank and which accounts they have.

J.Hazelbaker :

You can then freeze and levy those accounts.

J.Hazelbaker :

The first step should be going to the clerk of court and asking the procedure for requesting a judgment debtor exam. Usually, this is done through a written motion/request. In your request, you should inform the court that the judgment debtor has thus far failed/refused to respond to written requests for information.
