NOTICE:
To the defendant(s): Tennessee law provides a ten thousand dollar ($10,000.00)
personal property exemption from execution or seizure to satisfy a judgment. If a
judgment should be entered against you in this action and you wish to claim
property as exempt, you must file a written list, under oath, of the terms you wish
to claim as exempt with the clerk of the court. The list may be filed at any time
and may be changed by you thereafter as necessary; however, unless it is filed
before the judgment becomes final, it will not be effective as to any execution or
garnishment issued prior to the filing of the list. Certain items are automatically
exempt by law and do not need to be listed; these include items of necessary
wearing apparel (clothing) for yourself and your family and trunks or other
receptacles necessary to contain such apparel, family portraits, the family Bible,
and school books. Should any of these items be seized, you would have the right
to recover them.
If you do not understand your exemption right or how to
exercise it, you may wish to seek the counsel of a lawyer. Mail list, including
docket number, to: Clerk and Master, P.O.Box 1666, Franklin, TN 37065.
