This is about a Replevin in the state of Mississippi. It started out simple, I got a Judgement in my favor. Collecting on the judgement has gotten all kinds of complicated. Initially it started out reasonably well, collecting personal items from a motor vehicle. A substantial number of items were not returned, valued at approx. $1500.00, I returned to the courthouse and spoke with the clerk of court, and the judge himself about the shortcomings. They said that they would look into my situation, and contact me. They did call me, and said that they had put out a warrant for the arrest of the owner of the wrecker company that had my belongings. I did not file anything about this action. I was only trying to collect my belongings, and I am not a lawyer. Eventually the person was arrested, I was not notified of the arrest, and his arrest was dismissed due to me not showing up in court that day. After getting a letter of this action in the mail, I went to the courthouse, asked about this, and filed a motion to have the Dismissal set aside. At that hearing, in which I had no legal representation, I understood that the hearing was for the arrest of the owner of the wrecker company, his lawyer made a case that my claim was with the wrecker company, an LLC, and not the owner specifically. I agreed with that line of reasoning, and agreed to dismiss the arrest of the owner of the wrecker company. Judge told me to get the proper legal documents to make the proper filing, in order to collect on my Replevin. Now it's getting messy, and complicated to me. I have gotten a statement in the mail 2 days ago, Saturday, stating that my Replevin was dismissed. Now I am in need of some proper legal assistance. My name is Thomas *****, I live in *******La.,and I can be reached anytime at ***********. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Tom.

I recently won a small claims case where the defendant owes

I recently won a small claims case where the defendant owes me 1500. The defendant lives in another state and has not paid yet, nor does she have any intention to. I have a writ of execution to go after wages, but she is a co-owner of a business. I want to serve papers to collect on my judgement, but what is the best way to do that? I live in Idaho and she lives in Nevada. I was told the local sheriff will mail the papers to her, but how do I get payment? I don't think she'll pay if it's in the mail.

If a writ of execution on personal property is issued and a

If a writ of execution on personal property is issued and a public sale is held, what becomes of the property if nobody bids? Does the judgment debtor just keep it and sell it later in a non-public auction? Is there any accommodation for fair market value to the original debtor so that the judgment debt is reduced? For example, if a car is worth $5000 but nobody bids at the public auction and the creditor subsequently sells it in a non-public auction for $5000, does the judgment debtor get any credit on the overall judgment debt?

If a judgment debtor is served with a writ of execution that

If a judgment debtor is served with a writ of execution that lists personal property that the debtor does not own, what is the responsibility of the debtor? To hire a lawyer to file for a hearing and to attend a hearing regarding property not owned by the debtor seems unreasonable. Doesn't the judgment creditor have responsibility to establish ownership before serving a writ of execution?
