REVISED JUDICATURE ACT OF 1961 (EXCERPT)
Act 236 of 1961
600.6092 Judgment against absent, concealed, or nonresident defendant; sequestration of realty or personalty; delivery of possession of property; satisfaction out of estate and effects sequestered.
(1) In the case of a judgment against an absent, concealed, or nonresident defendant, process may issue to compel the performance of such judgment either by sequestration of the real and personal estate of the defendant, or such part thereof as is deemed sufficient; or where any specific estate or effects are demanded by the complaint by causing possession of the property so demanded to be delivered to the plaintiff.
(2) Such possession shall not be delivered until the plaintiff gives security, in such sum as the court directs, to abide the order of the court touching the restitution of the estate or effects delivered, in case the defendant appears and is admitted to defend the suit.
(3) Upon like security being given, the court, when a sequestration has issued, may order the judgment to be satisfied out of the estate and effects sequestered; but if such security has not been given, the estate and effects sequestered shall remain under the direction of the court, to abide its further orders.
