What legal means can a plaintiff use to obtain proof of my assets (cars, boat, jobs, etc.) in a small claims judgment?

Once a judgment is obtained, the judgment-creditor can garnish wages or levy bank accounts, but the creditor must know your employer and other information about you to perfect these remedies. To gather this info, the court can order a “debtors exam.” During this process, debtors are asked personal questions (that the debtor must truthfully answer) about the existence and location of assets, including account numbers. Getting to the assets from there is a relatively simple process.
