Southwestern College Civil Litigation Discussion

A Defendant may not always have a bank account that can be garnished in order to pay a judgment. If there is no bank account to garnish, does the judgment really matter? How else could the judgment be paid? Using the law in your state regarding judgments, explain the ways in which payment on a judgment can be obtained.
What if you are unaware of the Defendant’s financial information? What steps should be taken in your state to learn about such matters? Could a judgment in your state be used to foreclose on property? Will you need to worry about complying with the Fair Debt Collection Act?
