Try Google Scholar, although this does not seem to be anything that would be the basis of a law suit. More likely, it would be post judgment activity after the suit was decided.

There is a little more protection if you have an LLC. Sole proprietor just means you work for yourself. A corporation is a separate legal entity and is harder to get money from.
I am not an attorney. Any information I post is strictly my opinion and should be treated as such.

A sole proprietor's income, as a business owner or 1099 income, are not "wages" that can be garnished.

"Wages" is money earned from employment.

Garnishment can also be contested, it is not always automatic.
