In the context of a civil lawsuit in California state court (LA County) about how long (in terms of number of days or weeks) does it take for a judgment-creditor to obtain and enforce a levy of a judgment-debtor's assets, namely their bank account?
Can the judgment-creditor simply take a copy of the court order, go to the judgment debtor's bank and demand that the bank withdraw funds?
Or is there a separate process that the judgment-creditor must take in order to obtain and enforce a levy? If so, how long does that process typically take? Including having the sheriff take the judgment etc.Also, what about the time it takes the judgment-creditor to locate the judgment-debtor's bank account(s)? If the debtor never tells them which bank he uses, doesn't it take a while for the creditor to find that bank? Or is it instantly/easily learned by some sort of social security number search?
