I recently was served by the Sheriff a judgement for a

Hello,I recently was served by the Sheriff a judgement for a credit card I had back in 2008, in Wilmington NC. The judgement was rendered against you for creditor Barclay Bank of Delaware, notice of right to have exemptions designated, pay money over to the judgement creditor.It appears the judgement was filled in 2011. The filling was in Wilmington NC, I live in Raleigh NC, which is in a different county. I am self-employed and was not married when the judgment was filled. We moved 2 years ago and since the move, my income has significantly changed seeing as my business was in Wilmington NC, not Raleigh, NC. My wife has a decent job and is the main provider for the family currently. I have a business account which she is not on and we have a new joint account and she has her own banking account in which her paycheck is deposited.My question is:What rights do I have, should I get a lawyer in my current county or in the county the judgement was served?Do they have to fill in my current county, although we still have a home that we are trying to sell in Wilmington, NC, where the judgement was filled.?Being self-employed and having little income at this time I do not have the amount they are requesting me to pay. Will they be able to go after my wife's assets or paycheck?Thank you for your help in advance.Regards,Ken
