Should the credit card companies obtain a judgement for the outstanding amounts they can take judicial proceedings to collect on the debts.  Such procedures normally entail garnishment orders, writs of execution (seizing your assets) or filing the judgment against real property. If the judgments remain unsatisfied for a period of time the creditor can force the sale of the property.
