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."

It all begins with a complimentary
Judgment Enforcement consultation.
During this 30 minute meeting, we will analyze your case and create a customised Enforcement strategy. This interview will include a collection and review of all relevant information, followed by the establishment of viable and prioritized methods of enforcement and recovery, as well as a consideration of possible uses of recovery concepts such as Continuation and Alter-Ego.
During 2022, Swift enforced over $5.7mil worth of Judgments on Debtors.
Judgment Enforcement Process
✅ Writ of Execution Issued
One of our registered Process Servers will get a Writ of Execution issued in the County where the Case took place. This gives the Judgment Creditor (you) the right to enforce and collect the judgment.
✅ Find Assets, banks etc
Next, we need to locate the assets, real property, bank accounts, and/or employment for judgment debtors (them) that will satisfy the Judgment amount.
✅ Open Writ in County
Once we locate the assets etc, the Writ is opened with the Sheriff of the County where they are located.
✅ Served on Bank/Employer
Once opened, it can then be served on a bank (if a bank levy is ordered) or an employer (if wage garnishment is ordered).
✅ Proof Of Service Filed with Sheriff
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.
✅ Enforcement Complete
The Sheriff will receive a check and submit the payment to the judgment creditor, which will finalize the Judgment Enforcement.
