RULE NO. 11 SUPPLEMENTAL PROCEEDINGS A. A judgment creditor may request, in accordance with RCW 6.32, a supplemental proceeding or interrogatories to be served on a judgment debtor. The return date shall be scheduled for the civil motion calendar. B. If a judgment debtor fails to appear at a supplemental proceeding when scheduled, and the judgment creditor provides the court with proof of service, the judgment creditor may request an order for civil bench warrant by utilizing the Uniform Court Form Affidavit, Order and Bench Warrant and by completing the pre-warrant vital statistic information form. The court will issue a warrant calling for cash bail for the amount of the judgment, provided, however, if the amount of the outstanding judgment is greater than $250, the cash bail shall be $250. For a bench warrant issued by the court, the court shall require a $50 warrant fee, deducted from the cash bail. If the judgment creditor continues a supplemental proceeding to a subsequent date, at which the judgment debtor does not appear, a bench warrant will be issued only upon proof that the judgment debtor had actual knowledge of the subsequent hearing.
