Q: Judgements/ Writ of Execution explanation
I owe a credit card Co. a lot, and they got a judgment. I recently received a court email saying that they have filed a writ of execution.
What exactly does that mean?
A writ of execution is a formal document issued by a court that authorizes a sheriff to levy upon the property of a judgment debtor. RSA 527:12 (1997) (amended 2000); 5 R. Wiebusch, New Hampshire Practice, Civil Practice and Procedure § 60.02, at 474 (1998).
My firm's primary focus is in this area, as well as Bankruptcy. I am not suggesting you file Bankruptcy, I don't know enough about your overall situation. I do highly recommend you hire counsel to look at this credit card case as soon as possible.
A: I agree with Attorney Amann. The Writ of Execution is a court order granting the creditor to take possession of your property which is not exempt from the actions of creditors to collect debt. It can include filing with the Hillsborough County Registry of Deeds to lien your property, or to go after personal property. But Attorney Amann's analysis is correct and you should seek counsel.
