Seizure is the method of levy for personal property in a defendant’s going concern (business). Property levied
under a writ of attachment is held by the Process Server until the lawsuit is adjudicated. Ordinarily, the
defendant has the opportunity to attend a hearing to oppose the issuance of a writ of attachment. However, the
court may issue a writ of attachment ex parte without notice to the defendant under certain circumstances. A
Process Server performs the levy by placing a keeper (custodian) in the debtor’s business for an 8-hour period.
During that time, the keeper seizes incoming cash and checks from the sale of merchandise. The Process
Server holds all monies and property pending the outcome of the lawsuit.
The Process Server must serve a copy of the writ of attachment, order for issuance of the writ and notice of
attachment on the defendant. If the defendant has an attorney of record, service must be made on the attorney
rather than the defendant. If the writ of attachment was issued ex parte and the defendant did not appear in the
action, e.g., defendant did not file a response with the court, the service must be made in the same manner as a
summons. Otherwise, service may be made by mail. Consequently, the instructions to the Process Server must
provide the name and address of the defendant’s attorney, if any, and indicate whether the defendant has
appeared in the action (if the writ was issued ex parte.)
