Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

     21-19-5.   Effect of levy made without notice--Time allowed for claim of exemptions--Restoration on claim of exemptions without notice of levy. The notice of levy provided by § 21-19-3 shall not be essential to the validity of any levy, and any levy made without giving such notice shall be valid and shall have full force and effect except as otherwise specifically provided in this section, but the time in which a debtor or any dependent of a debtor may make claim of exemptions as provided in § 21-19-9, shall not commence to run unless and until such notice is given, and in the absence of such notice such claim may be made by such debtor or dependent at any time within ninety days of actual knowledge of such levy, or thereafter by permission of the court, if the court finds there was reasonable excuse for not making such claim within such ninety days. In the event any such claim is made in a case where no notice has been given under § 21-19-3 the court must require any property set aside to the debtor as exempt or its fair value to be restored by the creditor to the debtor.
