I am a lawyer in CT and pratice in this area of the law.  I am not sure what you are referring to in the email.  Is this a property or bank account execution based on a judgment?  If so, you need to contact the creditot's lawyer and see if they will negotiate a settlement before the execution happens.  If you cannot negotiate, you can try to challege the ececution by claiming that the underlying judgment is improper.
