If suing someone for defamation...
If suing someone for defamation or for damages related to any action they may have taken that caused clear damage, if they don't have a lot of money - what are the options for seeking the money. With some suits, life insurance or other types of insurance may help the other person pay. Of course, those options do not penalize the other part as much, which is part of the issue. So, if the other party is married, for example, could the lawsuit winner put a blanket lien on assets and, in the future, if the other party comes into money - the awarded amount would be paid?

Good afternoon. I am a legal expert attorney who will assist you today.
Yes. If a judgment is obtained and the party owns joint assets or comes into money at a future date, then the judgment would attach to those assets.
I hope this clarifies. Please don’t forget to rate the question. We as attorneys are not employees of Just Answer and are not paid unless you rate the question with stars

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
