Collecting Money After A Court Order
Our clients often come to Delev & Associates, LLC, stymied by the challenges of collecting on judgments. We remind them that the original challenge — convincing a judge that someone owes money — is often the easiest part of a lawsuit. Collecting on a judgment typically requires further effort.
A first step in post-judgment collections is often a letter to a party who has been found responsible to pay for negligence, wrongdoing or breach of contracts. A collection letter may or may not be effective.
If a collection letter does not bring the desired payment, a next step may be to garnish wages, file a lien on a house, seize a car and sell it at auction or obtain a levy on a bank account. If necessary, a receiver can be enlisted to take over the negligent party’s business and operate it for any necessary length of time or sell it in order to satisfy a judgment.
Obtaining Injunctions Against Wrongful Actions Or Inaction
Delev & Associates, LLC, pursues post-judgment remedies related to divorce lawsuits, business-related lawsuits or any other money judgment. Types of collections include:
Some judgments are not about money, but rather injunctions ordering an offending party to take certain actions. If necessary, we can petition a court to remedy the situation by sending a bailiff. We may ask a judge to enforce stipulation of an original court order.
