If a creditor gets a money judgment against you, it can use special collection procedures to get paid, such as taking money from your bank account (called freezing your bank account or levying funds from your account) or grabbing your tax refund, accounts receivable, or other source of money before you get it (creditors do this with an assignment order). Learn more about these collection procedures, when the creditor can and cannot use them, and what you can do to prevent your money from being taken.
