    Execution of real property

    My parents have received a letter from the court house in Arkansas, granting a debt collector the right to place a lien on their real property and/or garnish wages/bank accounts.

    They are both disabled; both on disability and the only income they have is their disability checks and veteran checks. I know by law, they cannot garnish their money, but what will happen with their home? Can they be removed from their home and put out on the streets? They are both disabled and not in good health. Thank you.

    SSI cannot be garnished. SSDI cannot be garnished below $750 for an individual. I am not sure about a couple. VA benefits may be garnished I believe. The property can have a lien put on it which will need to paid of prior to sale.
