Creditor’s Rights: What Is A Deposition In Aid Of Enforcement?

After a judgment is entered the next step is for that creditor to discover the judgment debtor’s assets and income to pay down the debt. To do that, the creditor sometimes needs to take a deposition in aid of enforcement. This is an examination of the debtor under oath, frequently before a judge or special master. The consequences of false testimony may be dire: imprisonment or denial of a bankruptcy discharge.
