I am behind on my bills. Will a deputy show up at my door to seize my assets?
Typically a garnishment or summons to appear in court will be issued before a writ of execution.

What can I do to avoid having a Writ of Execution issued against me?
Call the collection agency or creditor in which you are behind on your payments and try to arrange a monthly payment plan or other agreement with them to avoid having your property levied upon.
