Judgment Enforcement vs. Debt Collection

judgment enforcementIn general, debt collections agencies utilize very limited methods when pursuing outstanding debt. These can include things like making phone calls, sending correspondence through the mail, and enlisting a representative to appear in person. Conversely, judgment enforcement companies make use of more aggressive methods that are allowable by state laws.

How A Judgment Is Enforced

A judgment enforcement company may be able to garnish the debtor’s wages in order to recoup money owed, enlist a lien on assets or even seize property as collateral. They can also track debtors, called skip tracing,  that have fled the location where the judgment was made, which many debt collection companies are simply not capable of. There are many methods that can be utilized according to current laws, and the right company will make use of all available options.

  The Role of the Court

While the court is integral in  making the initial judgment, the responsibility for enforcing the payment is considered the responsibility of the person whom the judgment was in favor of, and as a result a whopping 80% of debt is never recovered due to lack of resources, time or money.
