Process to enforce a judgment for the payment of money shall be a writ of execution, unless the court directs otherwise. The procedure on execution, in proceedings supplementary to and in aid of a judgment, and in proceedings on and in aid of execution shall be as provided by law. In the aid of the judgment or execution, the judgment creditor or his successor in interest when that interest appears of record, may examine any person, including the judgment debtor, in the manner provided in these rules for obtaining discovery.


This Rule 69 is substantially the Federal Rule, omitting references to Federal statutes. It preserves by reference present State practice under S.C. Code Sections 15-39-10 through 15-39-150, and also brings to the assistance of the judgment creditor the right to obtain discovery under Rules 26 through 37.
