Thank you for your patience. Please allow me to respond directly.
Thank you. Your response is closer to what I need to know, but I do need to clarify:
Glad to hear it!
J#1 has a $2900 balance. Writ went to bank A and was for $16,000. I am going to receive $9500 in two weeks.
The amount that will come out is the balance and nothing more.
J#2 has a $10,000 balance. Writ went to bank B and was for $16,000. I am going to receive $4500 in two weeks.
The remainder will remain active as an outstanding debt.
J#2 also went to an employer. The Writ is for $16,000. I received $5000 just a week ago.
(total amount of both judgments was $47,000, entered on Jan 8 and Jan 16, 2013)
Couldn't I just file a declaration from stating that the money was collected and how it was allocated since the two judgments were issued by the same judge and related to the same issue?
I am afraid not. Even if the judgments were similar in nature, they are not the same. Two separate causes of actions, two separate judgments merit two separate collection methods. You can request a new writ to forward to the first bank for the second judgment and request that they collect first on one, then on the other, but you cannot file for a declaration form.
My ex took me to court and the judge didn't seem to care where the money came from, as long as it was paid.
The judge would not care, it is up to you as the holder of the judgment(s) to correctly collect the funds. Besides, a bank simply will refuse to hold money for more than the order--that exposes them to potential violations under fiduciary laws and banking regulations. They are limited to remove only as much money as the judgment calls for, so if there is only one judgment on record with them, that is all that they will collect upon.
