Judgments For Money

Learn about "civil" judgments for money - how the winner goes about collecting them, and how the losing party can protect certain money and property related to basic needs from being attached or garnished to pay a judgment.  Find out what kinds of money and property a creditor can almost never take.  And learn what you can do if a "default judgment" has been entered against you, which can happen even if you didn't know there was a court case and never appeared in front of a judge.
