You Won A Judgment: Now What?
If you have won a judgment in court, that does not mean the matter is at an end. One would think that the case is over and that you can simply collect your money and be done with it. Unfortunately, even before obtaining a judgement, the other party has already likely spent a good portion of funds owed to you.
Collecting upon that judgment can be difficult and challenging. That’s why you need an accessible and responsive attorney like Nathan Sukhia, who has the tools at his disposal to help you collect what is rightfully yours.
What Methods Can Be Used For Payment Collection
At Gig Harbor Law, we employ a variety of resources to help you collect a payment, which can include:
- Garnishing the wages from the other party’s paycheck
- Placing liens upon business equipment and other assets
- Collecting proceeds from the sale of real estate or other property
- Obtaining a court order to seize money from a party’s cash register or bank accounts
Collecting a debt is not always simple. Too often, even if an individual or company is financially stable, they will try avoiding payment of their judgment by a variety of means. Such parties may claim insolvency and seek shelter through a bankruptcy filing. Or they may simply try to delay the process. There are time frames in place for collecting on a judgment or debt. Failure to meet such a deadline could mean you lose the ability to collect upon that debt.
For this reason, you need an experienced collections attorney who understands the legal process and knows what steps to take to help you achieve a favorable outcome.
