Under the laws of all states in this country, a judgment creditor in order to collect on a judgment besides liening one's personal property, can levy upon one's bank accounts, stock accounts, lien one's real property as well as garnish the judgment debtor's wages.

I suggest that if you owe money on a judgment that you enter into a monthly installment schedule in writing with the judgment creditor.
