  • Garnishments: This remedy gives creditors the ability to take claim over debtor property that is held by a third party. Wages and bank accounts are often subject for garnishment. In wage garnishment, an employer is required to withhold a certain percentage of payroll to be given to the creditor who obtained a judgment against the debtor. Banks garnishment is similar in that a portion of a debtor's account balance is withheld for creditors.
  • Attachments and judgment liens: When an attachment is placed on debtor property, a creditor is allowed to take property or a property title. This is especially useful in cases where a debtor is about to sell off or otherwise dispose of the property. A judgment lien may also be employed to allow a sheriff to take a portion of a debtor's property, particularly in real estate. The sheriff can then arrange for the property to be seized and sold.

It is difficult to use such powerful remedies without help from an experienced lawyer. Debtors' rights are protected by the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). Any aggressive moves you make to collect could violate these regulations and, ultimately, put your right to collect at risk.
