Post Judgment Collection
Once a judgment is awarded to you, there are several avenues to consider when attempting to collect your money. Our Florida debt collection firm will review your judgment and devise a strategy to give your company the best chance at getting paid. Our collection lawyer will discuss post judgment discovery, with the goal of being able to levy on assets and/or garnish wages. Florida law provides many exemptions to garnishment. Our collection lawyer can make sure that the exemption to garnishment is legitimate. Our collection law firm will file the proper response with the Court to asserted claims of exemption.
Our collection attorney can garnish – freeze – the bank account of a debtor. Our Florida debt collection law firm advises its clients to always keep copies of their customer’s checks. If there ever comes a time when your customer owes you money, having bank account information will assist our collection lawyer. With this information the collection attorney can petition the court for a writ of garnishment. Once the writ is served on the bank by the sheriff, and if there is money in the account, the bank must freeze your customer’s bank account. The money that was frozen and set aside by the bank, upon Court approval can be turned over to you.
Post Judgment Discovery
If you do not know where your customer has a bank account, our collection attorney will serve documents on your customer which require that a financial disclosure be turned over to our debt collection law firm. The information obtained is useful in assisting the collection attorney in getting appropriate court orders to seize assets. Once assets are frozen or in the hand of the Sheriff, the collection lawyer will file appropriate court documents to request that these assets be turned over to our collection firm to pay the judgment.
