What is the name of your state? CA
I am filing a Claim of Exemption, form EJ-160, and the financial statement EJ-165, to counter a bank-levy on a money judgement. My question: where do I file it? I want a second opinion.
Here are the facts:
The judgment was made by a court in Tulare County, and this appears on the Writ of Execution (Money Judgement). However, on line 1 of the Writ of Execution, it states: To the Sheriff or Marshal of the County of: Sacramento.
And on my Notice of Levy under the Writ of Execution, the Levying Officer is listed as the Sacramento County Sheriff. The court is the Superior Court in Tulare County (this is the court where the judgment was originally obtained by the creditor). The bank under levy is based in Sacramento.
On form EJ-160, it states: The original and one copy of this form must be filed with the levying officer. DO NOT FILE WITH THE COURT.
Thus, to all appearances, I ought to file the form with the Sacramento County Sheriff. But I have been advised that I ought to file with the Tulare County Sheriff. Which is it?
Thank you in advance.
