Seizing a home in lawsuit! HELP!!

 So my MIL was sued for a car accident her minor son had, and in the judgement they are seizing her home. They sent a letter stating they would seize the home in 10 days. Yesterday marked 10 days and no sherriff came by the home. They are still packing and trying to find a new place to live.

Anyone know how this works? Will they give them some sort of 30 day eviction notice before just kicking them out? I mean 10 days isn't a lot of notice to pack your whole house and find a new place to live. They would essentially be homeless.

edit: spelling errors

No they did not. Their lawyer went for them.

Quoting daughteroftruth:

did they go to court?  I mean physically stand in front of a judge?

Now that I'm looking it up, I realize that you must be a really bored troll.   I didn't think people can sue and take your home in civil court.

The most they can do is get a judgement against you for the debt.   Then they can do the following options..

1.   Have your income garnished up to a certain percentage straight from your paycheck so you have no choice but to pay it.

2.   They can sue the courts and win to put a lien on your home until they are paid back...

However, they can't just kick you out and take your home.  That's ridiculous.

Are they sure its not a Lien? They can put a Lien on the home until the judgement is paid off our they can get the money first if they sell. They can not take the home. .
