Once you receive a court judgment in your favor, it is your responsibility to enforce it. The court will not enforce your judgment for you. Luckily, Swift Legal offers a comprehensive post-judgment investigation and collection service. This can be a complex process and requires work done by registered Process Servers and Private Investigators.
Each case is unique, requiring a bespoke approach to getting what you're owed.
"If you fail to plan, you plan to fail." - Benjamin Franklin
It all begins with a complimentary

One of our registered Process Servers will get a Writ of Execution issued. This gives the Judgment Creditor the right to enforce and collect their judgment. Most commonly this is done through a Bank Levy or Wage Garnishment.
Next, we need to locate the assets, real property, bank accounts, and/or employment for judgment debtors. Once we obtain this information, the Writ is opened with the correlating County Sheriff the assets' are located in. Once opened, it can then be served on a bank (if a bank levy is ordered) or an employer (if wage garnishment is ordered).
Finally, the Proof of Service is filed with the County Sheriff. From that point on, all communication and enforcement is between the Sheriff & the bank/employer. The Sheriff will then receive a check and then submit a payment to the judgment creditor.
"But what if I can't find the other party or the assets owed?"
