Filing a claim and then winning your case in front of the judge is merely the beginning of the process. What happens if the defendant doesn't want to pay?
Whether you won by default and were awarded a default judgment, or your case was litigated on the merits and you were awarded a judgment and money award by the court, you still have to collect the funds from the other side.
So what happens when you can't collect, and all you have is a mere piece of paper?
Not all debtors are alike: some individuals and business debtors are glad to write a check and have the judgment debt entered against them satisfied. Others, however, will attempt to do whatever they can to avoid paying: ignoring letters and calls, hiding assets, and moving funds.
If you can't collect your judgment on your own, you may need to hire an attorney to assist you. At Parks Law Offices, LLC, we can utilize a variety of methods to help you collect the money you're owed. From wage and bank garnishments, executing against real estate and personal property, and judgment debtor exams, and more, there are tools at your disposal.
