Military Levies

What if you see your debtor's Facebook web page says prominently that he is working for a US Navy MEO Office. Could that be this a good lead to the way the debtor makes income? Can you arrange to levy his military income to repay your judgment?

I'm a Judgment referral expert, not an attorney. This article is only my opinion, please consult with an attorney if you require legal advice.

As per the Uniform Code of Military Justice, not paying one's debt is a punishable offense. Get ahold of the legal base at the military office where your debtor is working. Those that work for the military are required to repay their verified debts. Do a Google for "ucmj article 134 debt". Then, find the telephone number of the legal office at the base where the debtor works. They'll help you.

Article 134 of the UCMJ describes punishments for military staffers that don't repay their debts, or the dishonorable failure to pay them. To get help from a military office to enforce your judgment, all four of these must be true:

1) The accused owed a certain entity or person a specific amount.

2) The debt was payable and due on a certain date.

(3) While the debt was still payable and due the accused dishonorably failed to repay this debt.

(4) The conduct of the accused prejudiced the discipline and good order in the armed forces or was by nature to discredit on the armed forces.

Most of the time, when you fill out the paperwork correctly and then send it to the right office, action will be sure and swift. Some relevant web sites are:

If you've got a judgment, the military levying process is easy: Complete the DD2653 (Involuntary Allotment Application) form, with a certified copy of the judgment, with 2 copies of each, and send everything to the national military garnishment center in Ohio.

In a few weeks to a month, your levy will continue until your judgment is repaid (presuming, of course, that there's not some other levy already in place, or a levy with with a higher priority doesn't come in). An advantage is that you won't need to write a check for a writ from the court, or pay a sheriff or a registered process server when you try a military garnishment (levy).
