Texas law provides the greatest protection of a debtor’s assets of any state due to the homestead laws which protect homesteads, vehicles, and other personal property from execution by a judgment creditor. In addition, Texas law prohibits wage garnishments by judgment creditors with very few exceptions. Nonetheless, judgments are collected in Texas and this helpful presentation will demonstrate some of the techniques and strategies available to a judgment creditor. This course features streaming video and downloadable audio presentations from a CLE seminar by the Houston Bar Association (HBA) on February 26, 2021.
