    They can do whatever is permitted under the laws of your state. It can reasonably be anticipated that your state has a homestead exemption, but they could conceivably pursue its value beyond that exemption (if it's worth more than the exemption amount). They can also go after your bank accounts and, depending on your state, possibly garnish your wages, and potentially go after other assets.
