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.
