Pennsylvania law allows wage garnishments only for:
child or spousal support
obligations relating to a final divorce distribution
board for four weeks or less
certain kinds of taxes
court-ordered restitution in criminal matters, and
back rent on a residential lease. (In this situation, a garnishment is limited to 10% of net wages, and the garnishment can't cause your salary to fall below the federal poverty guidelines. If your earnings aren't above the federal poverty guidelines, garnishment isn't permitted. Also, a garnishment for damages to the property isn't permitted if the lessee is a victim of domestic abuse.) (42 Pa. Cons. Stat. § 8127, 42 Pa. Cons. Stat. § 8128).
IDK but I assume unless the appeal requires a surety bond for full amount of Judgement they can pursue collection.
But before they can levy they need to know where to go for it. Most states allow creditors to question judgment debtors about their assets, either in writing or by ordering a court hearing. You must fully disclose all of your assets if you receive notice of a hearing or a debtor's examination letter. Failure to respond can result in contempt of court charges and possible imprisonment.
After receiving a judgment, a creditor may immediately place a lien on any property you own, subject to your state's exemptions and limitations. A lien gives a creditor the right to be paid a certain amount of money from the sales proceeds when the property is eventually sold. Most times, a creditor will place a lien over real property such as your house.
As for your bank just keep exempt funds in it. See if your employer will pay you via check. Then you can go to that bank and cash it for cash and certified check for rent/mortgage. Buy money orders or credit cards with cash to pay other bills.
