Description

Garnishment liens. Allows a writ of fieri facias to be applicable to newly acquired property for the same period of time that a wage garnishment is valid. In 2003 the return date for a wage garnishment was extended to 180 days but no change was made to allow a fieri facias to be extended from 90 to 180 days. Rule 3:2 of the Rules of Supreme Court provides that a writ is not returnable more than 90 days after its date unless a longer period is authorized by statute. Amends § 8.01-501, § 8.01-514, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
