Pre-Judgment Writs of Replevin- Regain Wrongfully Taken Property

Pre-judgment writs of replevin allow a creditor to regain possession of any property wrongfully held by another. Florida Statutes §78.069(3) provides the procedure and requires that the creditor post a bond prior to having the writ issued to protect the debtor in the event the property is wrongfully taken. This statute is extremely useful because it allows the creditor to pick up the property through the sheriff without serving the debtor first with the complaint so the debtor has no time to conceal the property.
