A BILL to amend the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, by adding thereto a new section, designated §50-6-4, relating to requiring judgment debtors to make monthly reports to magistrate court concerning whether the judgment debt is being paid or has been wholly satisfied.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended by adding thereto a new section, designated §50-6-4, to read as follows:
ARTICLE 6. ENFORCEMENT OF CIVIL JUDGMENTS.
§50-6-4. Monthly reports by judgment debtors.
When a civil judgment rendered in magistrate court becomes final, the judgment debtor shall submit monthly reports to the magistrate court, on a form prescribed by the Supreme Court of Appeals, concerning the progress, if any, that has been made toward satisfying the judgment. A judgment debtor's obligation to make monthly reports under this section terminates upon the submission of a final report, certified by the judgment creditor, that the judgment debt has been wholly satisfied.



NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to
require judgment debtors to make monthly reports to magistrate court concerning whether the judgment debt is being paid or has been wholly satisfied.

This section is new; therefore, strike-throughs and underscoring have been omitted.
