NEED PAYMENT

Someone or some business owes you money.

JUDGE ORDERED

You took that entity to court and a judge ordered them to pay you.

LOCATE ASSETS

To get your money you need to locate assets and file a “Writ” of execution.

ENFORCE JUDGMENT

Now you have options to enforce your Judgment.

Judgments do not last forever. Pay close attention to start and end dates if you have received a judgment from the court. The statute of limitations begins at different times depending upon which state your judgment has been rendered. This is very important because a lapsed judgment can become void and unenforceable. An unenforceable judgment is a waste of your time because after all that time in court and filing paperwork you are back at where you started. Avoid a lapsed judgment by enforcing your judgment as quickly as you can. Debtors are clever and will do everything in their power to avoid responsibility.

The statute of limitations is your time limit when it comes to judgments. The statute of limitations is what governs the amount of time a judgment is enforceable. Due to the strict nature of the statute of limitations, courts offer extensions for judgments that reach the statute of limitations in order for creditors to have enough time to collect what they are owed. It is understandable to be frustrated with a debtor who constantly avoids phone calls, payment requests, and even moves states to avoid paying what they owe. But do not give up or else your judgment may lapse and become unenforceable.

The courts may take your side and give a judgement in your favor, but enforcing and collecting that judgement is left to you. There are different ways to go about collecting a judgement and they all rely on how the debtor reacts to said judgement. If your debtor appears to be evading, not answering phone calls, and being an overall deadbeat, then it is within your power to use all legal means possible to collect. This could mean garnishing wages or even go directly after the debtor’s bank accounts. It is your right to use whatever legal means necessary to recover what is rightfully yours.

In court, judgments seem final. After the court rules in your favor you might feel a sense of relief as you now have legal documentation for your judgment. However, this is not the end, and judgments are not the end all be all when it comes to collecting an owed debt. The courts leave enforcement of their judgments to the creditor who wins the judgment. If you do not enforce your judgment, your debtor will continue to evade their responsibility. The onus is on you to pursue and get what you are owed through any legal means necessary.

Judgements must abide by the statute of limitations. This is the law in the United States and what it means is that you must enforce your judgment within a set amount of time determined by the state the judgment was rendered. The statute of limitations varies by state, but generally it is between 6 and 10 years. This seems like a long amount of time to collect on a judgement, but in reality debtors will easily go years avoiding a judgement without a problem. This is why the court leaves the enforcement of their judgement to the creditor. A creditor who has a judgement has the legal ability to garnish wages and go directly after bank accounts. Use these pathways to get what you are owed or you risk a lapse judgement becoming unenforceable. Why go to court in the first place if you don’t intend to enforce your judgement? Take advantage of all legal mechanisms to get what you deserve.

Judgments are not permanent court orders unless ruled that way by a judge, and in many states judgments are limited by a strict statute of limitations that does not allow for judgment extensions in perpetuity. The statute of limitations dictates how long a judgment may be enforced and when that time expires. It is best to act on a judgment as soon as possible because debtors will avoid their responsibilities as long as possible. Time is not your friend when it comes to enforcing and collecting on a judgment. The quicker you enforce and collect on your judgment the better, otherwise your judgment might expire and become useless.
