Discovery During the Florida Collection Case

During litigation in Florida, the Plaintiff and Defendant are able to exchange discovery. This is usually accomplished by utilizing any combination of interrogatories, request for production of documents, request for admissions and or taking depositions. In Florida the opposing party has thirty (30) days to respond to discovery requests. In the Florida debt collection process this is a valuable tool to flush out the defendants defenses if any to your Florida collection case. By using a Florida collection lawyer or Florida collection firm, you can make sure that you have all the documents and information you need from the debtor before going to trial.

Florida Post Judgment Discovery

In Florida, after a creditor obtains a judgment it can serve post judgment interrogatories in aide-of-execution or choose to subpoena an officer or the person with the most knowledge of the debtor’s finances for  deposition. Depending on the size of the collection matter it may be more cost effective to first send interrogatories. In either case the debtor must provide a full disclosure of its assets including, but not limited to, its bank accounts, automobiles, equipment and or other real and personal property. In Florida if the debtor does not comply with post judgment discovery, a Writ for the Bodily Attachment may be issued by a Florida Judge.

Once the creditor has a full understanding of the debtor’s assets, a determination can be made as to whether or not it would be costs effective to pursue its Florida Collection matter further.
