Locating a bank account is not as easy as it sounds. You might have a vague idea of what bank account your judgment debtor utilizes, but you can’t go up to their front desk and ask if you could have the bank account information regarding your judgment debtor. Unless, of course, you have a writ of execution. But in order to get a writ of execution, you need to know the bank account information of your judgment debtor. Seems like a catch 22, however, once a judgment has been made, you can legally perform a bank account locate to get the necessary information for your writ of execution.
