This corp is my debtors corp and all his money goes to the corp so I am having trouble collecting. How to I do a third party lien to the corp so that any money they give to him would have a deduction for me from it.

    Answered . You can levy the third party corporation or ask the court to issue an assignment order against the corporation or do a judgment debtor's exam and have the court issue a turnover order for the corporate stock. Lots of options - just how you choose to skin the cat! Call us, we can help.

    Answered . Insomuch as you have not specified what problems you are having getting money from the corporation, it is not clear what your problem is and what advice you are looking for. However, I will assume that your problem is the fact that you have judgment against Mr. Debtor, individually and not his/her separate and distinct corporate entity. I would suggest you do an order of examination of the debtor to learn about whether the corporate entity is simply a shell or a viable corporation which the debtor keeps and maintains as a true separate entity. If it’s a shell type corporation you could obtain an order of the court to pierce the corporate veil and get to its assets.
