TIPS FOR COLLECTING ON A MONEY JUDGEMENT

If you won a Judgement you are now a Creditor and the losing side is a Debtor. The Debtor owes money to the Creditor and should pay the money due. But, collecting a judgment may not be easy. To begin collecting a judgment, the Creditor should contact the Debtor or Debtor’s attorney, if there is one, and ask the Debtor to pay. If the Debtor doesn’t pay, the Creditor has to find the Debtor’s money. The Court does not do this for you. Some of this information you can find out by making some phone calls or trips to government offices.

Try to find the Debtor’s bank: you or someone you know may have paid the Debtor with a check. If so, look on the back of the canceled check for the bank’s information.

Try to find out if the Debtor has a car: contact the New York Department of Motor Vehicles and find out the car model, year, license plate number and address where the car is registered.
