The creditor can ask the court for permission to take money from your bank account, seize an asset that you own that is nonexempt (protected from collection actions), or put a lien on one of your assets. If there is a lien on the asset, you cannot sell it or transfer it to someone else unless you pay off the lien, which will probably be for the amount of the judgment.
