A creditor can obtain what is called a prejudgment remedy where they seek to secure money in the event it wins in court. this way the money doesnt disappear by the time they get a judgment. However, you ar required to be on notice. The exception is if you have a contract with the creditor that says that you waive notice to a prejudement remedy. In this case the creditor can lien your property without your notice and then commence a lawsuit.
