You Won In Court. Now Try And Collect!

The drama is usually in a small claims court. Some person owes you $4,000 but, you get stiffed. So your neighbor suggests you get relief by filing in a small claims court. The good news is, no lawyers are allowed, so it’s just you, the deadbeat, and, the judge. More good news. You win a judgment of $4,000 plus court costs. Yea! Now the bad news. Getting your money. It’s complicated and there are rules, but be persistent. The debtor has 30 days to pay up. If not, you can take steps to get the money by seizing personal property or assets, filing a lien against real property, or wage garnishment. More info: judgment enforcement New York
