What happens after we get a judgment?
A collections lawyer in New Jersey can take numerous steps to enforce your judgment. Some of the available collection tools we can assist you with include:
- Wage garnishments. A wage garnishment allows a creditor to receive a percentage of the judgment-debtor’s paycheck until the court-awarded amount is paid in full.
- Bank levies. A bank levy allows a creditor to freeze a bank account to receive payment on the judgment amount.
- Liens. A judgment creditor can place a lien on either the judgment debtor’s real property or personal property.
- Depositions. We can conduct depositions (or interview under oath) of judgment debtors to determine the location of their assets.
- Seizures and writs of execution. With the assistance of a sheriff, a creditor can seize assets and property owned by the judgment debtor to satisfy the judgment amount.
- Pursue fraudulent transfers. If the judgment debtor transferred assets to a third party in an effort to hide them from a creditor, we can file a lawsuit against the party holding the property for the judgment debtor.
If you have obtained a judgment in another state that you want to enforce in New Jersey, we can help you with the judgment domestication procedure. We can also take enforcement actions to recover the amount owed to you.
Creative ways we can help enforce your judgment
If the debtor is not responding to any of the above legal tactics for debt recovery, we also have developed creative and effective strategies for recovering the debt owed to you. Some disputes can be resolved with a “forbearance agreement.” Typically, this means a judgment debtor must:
- execute a new promissory note,
- furnish collateral, and
- provide a personal guarantee of payment in exchange for the creditor’s agreement to withhold or forbear from using the available collection tools.
This may result in it taking more time for you to get paid. However, this method actually can improve a creditor’s priority and opens new methods for collection efforts in the future.
