Judgment Lien Stripping in California

What is judgment avoidance & lien stripping?

Judgment liens come about when a consumer falls behind on payments, such as an auto loan. When a consumer falls behind on their payments, the person's lender may obtain a default judgment from the court which allows them to take action to collect the debt, such as garnishing their wages or freezing their bank account. Certain judgments can be avoided, or even "stripped," when the consumer files for bankruptcy.

How to Avoid a Judgment Lien

Do you have a default judgment out against you? Are you filing for bankruptcy? If you answered yes to these two questions, then a Cerritos bankruptcy attorney from our firm can help you have that judgment "stripped" through exemption. Certain property can be marked as "exempt" when you file for bankruptcy, such as your house and / or your car up to a certain value.
