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.

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.

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.
