Small claims case research: lien on property and garnish wages

I have a US Small Claims court case waiting to be filed to a prior landlord, who has not returned my security deposit. I expect the case to drag out to a year as the defendant will appeal, even if I win, and I expect them to not pay even if the judge orders them to.

So I need someone to do back end research on the specific legal process of putting a lien on someone's house, and process of garnishing their wages. The county is San Mateo County, California (rules are different by county). I can do this research mysef, but just dont have the time. Please note I only have $30 or less to spend on this.

So for example:

What are the legal process steps one has to go through?

How long does each step take?

Good resources, Tips and what to watch out for.

Pros and Cons of either option (garnishing wage or lien on house)

Summary of good recommendations and tips from web sources are always good.

I can explain the details to you once selected.


The person should be familar with legal concepts and basics of small claims court cases and procedures for landlord / tenant filings.

I need you to read a lot on this topic, research on it and present back to me in a actionable and digestable format that I can easily understand.

Value added input required - such as reading user experiences so to find good tips. Dry technical things I can find myself.

Excellent English required.
