2.Bank accounts, rents and royalties can be garnished.

For individuals living in Texas who are paid from an out of state location, there is case law (Baumgardner vs. Sou Pacific 177 S.W. 2d 317) to support taking a judgment from Texas, domesticating the judgment in the foreign state, then filing the wage garnishment there. Many creditors have used this strategy successfully..

Also I rent an apartment with my family, what can they do to make me an unhappy camper while renting?
