I was issued a Writ of Garnishment this past Saturday. I was never properly served papers. I found them on my front porch. The debt has exceeded the stature of limitations and the amount of the debt listed is far more than what is actually owed. Do I have any recourse since the Writ of Garnishment has already been signed? Can I ask for a hearing to object this garnishment? I appreciate all your help. Thanks you!JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location. Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Arkansas. Yes, apparently so. Several years ago in 2012.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, that pretty much summarizes the situation. Thank you.

If I'm assigned a civil judgment by the original judgment

If I'm assigned a civil judgment by the original judgment holder, and I discover the debtor has unclaimed funds held either by a county in Ohio or the State of Ohio, what do I need to include with and write in the Claim paperwork so that the Treasurer doesn't contest the claim?I've read about several cases where civil judgment holders request a writ of garnishment to serve whichever department handles the unclaimed funds for their area, only to have to go through a court battle to prove that the government department is only a custodian for the money and a writ of garnishment is both relevant and enforceable.

And if so, which ones?
