What are Enforcement Services?
The question after you get a judgment is always, “now what?”
The process of “enforcement” is what is next. Enforcement is exactly what it sounds like, enforcing a judgment or an order.
Once the judgment has been obtained, ensure it is registered with the Small Claims Court. If the Judgment is for a monetary amount, then there is three choices; examination hearing, garnishment; or seizure and sell.
- If they are employed, then you have the option of garnishing their wages.
- If they have a Picasso, then you have the option of seizing and selling the item.
- If they have a bank account, you can garnish their account.
If you are unsure what their financial situation is, then an Examination Hearing is suggested. All of these courses of actions can be taxing so let us do it for you!
