The court only allows an exemption of personal property (which is what an auto is) of up to $500; please see:

https://www.arlegalservices.org/files/FSGarnishment.pdf

That link has the affidavit to claim the exemption.

With both me and my husband being sued separately is there any thing we can do with just me working and having kids to take care of as well
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
What about our kids belongings
Lawyer: legalgems, Lawyer replied 5 months ago

Personal items such as clothes don't count towards the exemption. That is addressed on page 2 of the above link.

Sometimes the parties will consider bankruptcy; if it is not an intentional tort the judgment may be discharged. This discusses the various chapters:

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

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.
