Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Thanks for your answer. I don’t have any assets. I am paying for two cars with almost no equity. To answer your question, only writ of execution check box is checked and checkboxes for personal and real property are unchecked.
Are there any other options besides claim of exemption? Also since there is no file open with Sherriff office and claim of exemption has a place for levying officer number. What should I write in that place? Most important question is, what happens next? I file exemption, I get a court date. Would they still garnish my wages until a decision is reached by court? Hopefully they will wait until a court date.
Thanks for your help.
Ok I will do that. They are not garnishing more than 25 % of my wages. On my financial statement, I am left with few hundred dollars per month after all the bills are paid. Should I put down something like $ 30.00 per month for this creditor? Last time I had put down zero but judge said I do owe this money so I have to pay something.
I forgot to mention that this is judgment was entered by default by court clerk. Can this judgment be challenged?
