Enforce Your Judgment Before it is Too Late
Do not let your judgment lapse. Debtors will attempt to avoid paying what they owe as long as they possibly can and if you let them off the hook, you will have wasted all of your time getting the judgment in the first place. Enforce your judgment before it is too late. Don’t waste time getting a judgment in the first place if you don’t plan on enforcing said judgment. However, if you are attempting to enforce your judgment and the debtor continues to evade past the statute of limitations the courts will allow you to extend your judgment. Debtors are infamous for avoiding responsibility and the courts are well aware of this problem.
Why should I enforce my Judgment?
If you sit on your judgment for too long, the statute of limitations might expire and your judgment will become null and unenforceable. This is why it is important to enforce your judgment as soon as the courts rule in your favor. Time moves quickly when you are dealing with a deadbeat debtor who has already gone to court and lost. More often than not, if you give them a minute of time, without setting up a payment plan, they will take years. Letting debtors get away without paying what they owe will defeat getting the judgment in the first place.

What happens if I do not enforce my Judgment before it is too late?
If your judgment passes the statute of limitations in your state, your judgment may become unenforceable. There are ways to avoid this, such as enforcing your judgment by using companies like WritReady. Or, you can ask for an extension from courts. In certain states, if a judgment has lapsed, the courts may revive the judgment and make it enforceable once again. However, do not rely on this mechanism because it is not available in all states.
Can I get my Judgment extended?
Yes. Depending upon the state, getting an extension on your judgment is a similar process to obtaining your judgment in the first place. This time around the courts allow an abbreviated process(depending upon the state) to obtain an extension on your judgment. The courts deal with debtors who do not pay their judgments everyday and have created these extensions to help deal with deadbeat debtors. In many circumstances you may extend a judgment perpetually until a debtor takes responsibility and pays what they owe.
Letting a judgment lapse is not the end of the world in certain states, but in other states it means that your judgment is null and unenforceable. Make sure to read up on the statute of limitations in your state before it is too late.

Do not let your debtor get away without paying what they owe.
