Legal Question in Credit and Debt Law in Texas

I just received a writ of execution on a debt judgement in Texas. I have adult children who live in my home. Is their personal property subject to seizure and sale?

No, but yours is. There is a long laundy list of things that are exempted property in Texas - and you can probably find it just by Googling it. Now, I should add, although your children's personal belongings may not be subject to seizure, you will have to have some documentation to show that title to the items of property lies in their names. You just cannot say, "Oh, that sofa belongs to my daughter," or "That bed belongs to my son."
