Texas provides various means to aid in the collection of debts that have been reduced to judgments. These are generally called post judgment remedies and include, among others, execution, garnishment, turnover and judgment liens. Texas Rule of Civil Procedure 621a provides as follows:
At any time after rendition of judgment, and so long as said judgment has not been suspended by a supersedeas bond or by order of a proper court and has not become dormant as provided by Article 3773, V.A. T. S., the successful party may, for the purpose of obtaining information to aid in the enforcement of such judgment, initiate and maintain in the trial court in the same suit in which said judgment was rendered any discovery proceeding authorized by these rules for pretrial matters. Also, at any time after rendition of judgment either party may, for the purpose of obtaining information relevant to motions allowed by Texas Rules of Appellate Procedure 47-49 initiate and maintain in the trial court in the same suit in which said judgment was rendered any discovery proceeding authorized by these rules for pretrial matters. The rules governing and related to such pretrial discovery proceedings shall apply in like manner to discovery proceedings after judgment. The rights herein granted to the party shall inure to their successors or assignees, in whole or in part. Judicial supervision of such discovery and proceedings after judgment shall be the same as that provided by law or these rules for pretrial discovery and proceedings insofar as applicable.
