If you have a judgment against you in Texas, you likely have some level of fear and anxiety that has brought you to the place of seeking out information about your rights. The Texas Judgment Debtor Handbook is written specifically to help you understand your rights as a judgment debtor in Texas. In this book you will learn everything you need to know about what your judgment creditor can and cannot do with the judgment against you. After reading this book you'll know exactly where you stand as a judgment debtor in Texas. There are, however, a few things you need to understand about this book and it's intended audience. First, this book is for people who already have a civil judgment for money damages entered against them by a court in Texas. If you are dealing with debt collectors who have not yet sued you or successfully gotten a judgment against you, the information in this book will not directly help you deal with those collectors. It will help you in an indirect manner because you will learn that many of the techniques debt collectors use to scare debtors into making payments they cannot afford to make is intentionally false information. Second, this book is for people who have a money judgment against them. Courts can render many kinds of judgments. This book deals only with money judgments. Money judgments are judgments in which you have been ordered to pay another party a specific amount of money as damages in a lawsuit. Third, this book is for people who have a judgment against them in the state of Texas. The laws, rules and forms in this volume are applicable and useable for judgments in all Texas Courts. The laws of other states may vary greatly from those in Texas so the information in this book may not apply to judgments in other states. Fourth, this book is not designed to help you avoid paying a legitimate judgment that you can afford to pay. It is written to help you understand how Texas law protects you as a judgment debtor. But, if you had your day in court and lost you are liable for the judgment. If you can afford to pay the judgment then you should pay it. If you cannot afford to pay it, then you should have a clear understanding of your rights under the law. When you know your rights, the judgment creditor cannot intimidate you or cause you unnecessary fear and anxiety. With that understanding, this book will give you all the information you need to understand your rights as a judgment debtor in Texas.

This 2007 book assists the practitioner seeking to enforce a foreign judgment in the United States or a US-rendered judgment abroad in navigating the lack of procedural uniformity that exists and in planning strategies likely to ensure effective enforcement. As a handbook, it provides the practitioner with a framework and resources with which to approach and further research the laws of the relevant state or country. In Part One, the guide takes the practitioner chronologically through the process of obtaining a US court's recognition and enforcement of judgments rendered abroad. Part Two takes the practitioner through the process of obtaining an overseas jurisdiction's recognition and enforcement of judgments rendered in the United States. Part Three assesses the current trends in the US and in the international trade environment regarding enforcement of judgments which may be made by foreign courts.

Bouaphakeo, 136 S. Ct. 1036 (2016). Executive Order 13706, signed on Labor Day 2015, takes effect in 2017. It requires federal contractors to allow employees to accrue at least one hour of paid sick leave for every 30 hours they work, and unused sick leave can be carried over from year to year. Mid-2016 DOL regulations make millions more white-collar employees eligible for overtime pay, by greatly increasing the salary threshold for the white-collar exemption. Updates on the PATH Act (Protecting Americans From Tax Hikes; Pub. L. No. 114-113. The DOL published the "fiduciary rule" in final form in April 2016, with full compliance scheduled for January 1, 2018. The rule makes it clear that brokers who are paid to offer guidance on retirement accounts and Individual Retirement Arrangements (IRAs) are fiduciaries. In early 2016, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced it would allow charging parties to request copies of the employer's position statement in response to the charge. The Supreme Court ruled that, in constructive discharge timing requirements run from the date the employee gives notice of his or her resignation--not the effective date of the resignation. Certiorari was granted to determine if the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA) preempts consideration of severing provisions for unconscionability.
