You went to court, presented your case and the judge sided with you. Now you have a judgment.
Your California judgment entitles you to collect through various legal
means. The court does not collect the judgment for you and
the court cannot recommend a method of collection for you,
as the court does not provide legal advice.
You must decide which avenue of collection you will pursue.
You can prepare and file the appropriate court forms. It is
also your responsibility to obtain addresses or other information
you may need as you pursue collection. The court will provide
you with the forms. And that is all they will provide.
You may and most likely will be required to pay additional
court fees and/or costs in pursuing your judgment through collection,
which may include the need to file additional lawsuits in order
to enforce your judgment.
Is it any wonder why most judgments go uncollected?
Of course you could pay an attorney to attempt to enforce your judgment. Then if they are unable to collect, you still have to pay the attorney for their time and expenses.
But you have the right to assign your judgment to another party to collect. That is where Pacific Judgment Enforcement comes in.
