Will the Court collect my judgment for me?

No. It is your responsibility to take any and all legal action necessary to collect on your judgment from the judgment debtor. Some actions you can use to help collect your judgment include:

  • Conducting a Judgment Debtor Rule to determine the judgment debtor’s assets.
  • Garnishing the judgment debtor’s wages, bank accounts, and/or other assets until your judgment is paid in full. (Refer to the Garnishment Procedure Guidelines and Forms (PDF) document).
  • You should consult an attorney to determine all legal remedies available to you.
