What Is Texas Law on Receivers?

All states have procedures for appointment of a Receiver. Texas law allows judges to appoint a Receiver to collect unpaid judgments in Chapters 31 and 64 of the Texas Civil Practice & Remedies Code andChapter 11 of the Texas Business Organizations Code.

Any Texas court which has issued a judgment can later appoint a Receiver to enforce it. This includes state district courts down to justice of the peace courts.

Federal courts may also appoint receivers to enforce their judgments. Federal courts in Texas apply Texas state law for receivers.
