I live in NJ and I sued someone. Trial is next month and all of the sudden the defendant has closed his bank accounts and transferred them to his daughter and now his house just appeared in her name. Is there any way to stop this? I am not a creditor as of yet because, again, trial is next month. Even though I am not a creditor yet, but filed the lawsuit in Dec of 2015, with trial being right around the corner, can my attorney file an injunction against the transfer of assets? Or do you have to actually be a creditor first?
duplicate question handled earlier this afternoon. In sum: with the right information this is possible.to stop.
NJ has a fraudulent transfer act that can be used, once you become a creditor. Discuss with your lawyer. Cannot prevent a transfer ordinarily, without some egregious behavior.

I would consult with your attorney about the specific facts to your situation, however New Jersey maintains a fraudulent transfer act that may declare that transfer fraudulent, which could result in the transaction being on wound, voided, or result in damages.
