Social Secuerity payments, even when they are in a bank account, are exempt from garnishment so that isn't an issue.
Also, the first $4500 of a vehicle's value is exempt from seizure.
So likely they can;t get anything if they do get a judgment.
my mom's car is probely worth around 8k maby on a good day
trade in 5k probely
she was just worried about the ssn money without that we kids are all she has
No, they definitely can't get the SSN payments.
should she just sell me the car than I don't have to worry about anything about the issue
the reason I say that then it would be a great burden on us kids taking her places.
That should work as well. They don't pursue the vehicles usually but that would prevent them from doing so.
Once they see all that she gets is SS payments they are probably just going to get the judgment and not bother her any more.
she was served today and would there be a legal problem selling the car tomorrow.
No, there shouldn't be but of course if she sold it to you a couple of weeks ago that would be better.
And it isn;t unusual for it to take a couple of weeks to change the title after a sale.
ok I see what you mean ok ty for everything
You're very welcome and best wishes to you and your mother on this. Please don't forget to leave a Positive Rating (of course I’d suggest Excellent!) so I get credit for my work.
I'll exit now to assist others.
