Legal Question

Asked on: 3/20/13, 7:38 pm

I'm in NC, and I have a court judgement against someone. I've been unable to collect on the judgement because the debtor has had no assets that I could go after. However, the debtor's father passed away a few weeks ago and his estate was filed yesterday. The debtor on my judgement is an heir to the estate. Can I file a writ of execution against the debtor's inheritance now, or do I have to wait until the estate is settled and they actually take possession of the inheritance?
