Prejudgment relief

The time prior to a judgment in a collections case can be nerve-wracking. However, seasoned collection attorneys can take preemptive measures to protect the assets of the debtor up until the lawsuit is finalized.

Following are typical prejudgment relief:

  • Attachment: The sheriff seizes the non-exempt property of a creditor until the judgment of a trial.
  • Prejudgment garnishment: Here the sheriff seizes property held by a third party on behalf of the debtor. Unlike garnishment, in prejudgment garnishment, the creditor usually applies for the writ of garnishment ex parte.
  • Replevin: Used to secure specific property and assets, replevin is often employed as a prejudgment relief tactic in order to prevent the hiding or destruction of property.
  • Lis pendins: A lis pendins does not require court action and is essentially a notice attached to piece of real estate that explains that any buyer of the property is subject to the judgment of the lawsuit.

However, prejudgment reliefs only last until a judgment has been made. Additionally, because prejudgment reliefs can deprive a debtor of his or her property, you must have ample evidence supporting your claim that assets used for collateral may be lost without action. If you suspect or have solid proof that assets may be hidden or transferred before judgment, your Texas debt collector can file for a prejudgment relief. Additionally, you must show that your prejudgment relief will ultimately prevail.
