Winning a judgment and collecting a judgment are not the same thing. When a court judges in your favor, they give you the legal ability to claim assets owed to you if your judgment debtor ignores the court order to surrender said assets. The true legal language is confusing and will leave any individual lost, but don’t worry because there are professionals online to help. The courts will suggest using debt collectors, collection agencies, or private investigators to get the assets you are owed, but the best option is to get a writ of execution. The best way to get a writ of execution is obtaining the necessary asset ownership information through an asset search.
