I like getting in SC and had to sue a videographer in

Hello I like getting in SC and had to sue a videographer in Columbia County Georgie in which I won. His 30 days to pay was up on yesterday. He did not pay. I have been told by a clerk there that I can file a garnishment which is even Moreno why spent out to possibly get nothing back still. I am unsure of his banking or employment other than his business name and address which I sued his sJA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: The person and business is in Grovetown GeorgiaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I sued both the person and business but I really need my money back and I am unsure of his employment being that both the person and business I believe were under the same address. I have a phone number and email Iusee to contact him but he hasn't responded since last year. So we have no clue what to do as far as garnishments.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes ma'am as I stated previously I sued him and his business, won because both failed to answer and both parties have refused to pay me what was ordered by default in the specified timeframe. No I need to know what and how do I find out where he banks or works to file a garnishment if he is no longer in business or under another business name or what to do.

In Texas, I won a case in small claims court and collecting

In Texas, I won a case in small claims court and collecting on the debt has been difficult. I was going to get a writ of execution, but I understand that $30,000 of personal property is exempt, including home furnishings. I was wondering who determines the value of belongings to know if there is more than $30,000 and does artwork fall into the exempt category. The debtor says he has a $50,000 comic book collection, but my guess is he would deny the value to a sheriff that shows up at his front door.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Not sure what you mean.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no

I am a 62 retiree living on no income aside from my state

I am a 62 retiree living on no income aside from my state louisiana pension which I have learned r exempt from garnishment. Also i am somewhat concerned as i read in 2011 congress passed a law making it incumbent on banks to "tag " exempt funds when a collections agency wins a judgement and hit them with a writ of execution...that now the bank can no longer turn over exempt funds..i am hoping this is true..my bigger worry is my mom's house. where I am living since her death is 2013. in fact i incurred the credit card debt as she had a lengthy illness...but please be advised her name is ***** ***** to any of these debts which r all in my name...the house is legally listed under the estate of ***** ***** abbott ...her name...at 1st garbage one would think the house is exempt as there was no succession and my name is ***** ***** to the house. However I have read voraciously and have heard that in louisiana where I live when a person does intestate like mom i sound like i could be the default owner as there r no other relatives ...bit no one knows this in the judicial world of course...i dont want to do a bankruptcy at my age ..mi don't care about credit and in fact have a few which help me get thru some hard months when I have a necessary purchase ...also the homestead exemption in la is 75000 i have doubts as to whether this house is worth thst it is so dilapidated...roof and tile and concrete damage ...termite damage..in flood ravages declining area and someone suggested to me to get an appraisal as if it appraises as low as i think...it might be off limits from what I understand...i am essentially judgment proof and cannot likely pay these debts prior to my death to be honest so it is just not a big concern. my credit and all ..i DO wanna keep a paid for house as i csnt work due to orthopedic disabilities and then 62 you r not tearing up the job industry if we r honest...i can expect hell from them this last yr as SOL will expire on them on may 2015 here in la. on April 3rd4th and 7th and then on may 1st 2nd 5th and 8th a sheriff left me a notice saying there r civil papers for me to pick up regarding a civil matrer against me...i never responded...yes this is recommended if u think it is an error...but i actually think I can hurt my case with the house if i appear in person as they likely know it belongs to my mother but they r not sure what other relatives might have an interest ...unlesss i testify.. i read their next step would be putting g my case in the newspaper and then when I did it reply they can go to court where they will win by default...with me i dont think there is much blood in the turnip...so imagine my shock when I received a letter from a local bankruptcy lawyer telling me a perusal of the docket in a local court on April 27th shows i am being sued by a cavalry pvs junk collector....he of course was simply wanting my business bit i do t wanna declare bankruptcy and I do t think my testimony will be helpful to my odd case...it am wondering ur opinion about what if anything they can do with this house particularly seuzure...thst is all I care about...if they put a lien doesn't thst mean I can't sell it ...if so i do t care i have no heirs at all and I was told I can't sell it anyway bc there was never a succession...my phone id(###) ###-####and I am willing to pay extra..my email is***@******.***JA: PayPal, Debitcard or credit card are all fine. Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: louisianaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I am on free trialJA: After your first paid question, we offer a week's free trial membership when you can ask as many questions as you like.Customer: apparently this lawsuit by a collections agency in courtJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: noo bit can I opt for a phone conversation with additional fee
