I Won In Court & I Want My Money!Posted on: May 17th, 2013
Question: How do I collect on a small claims judgement I won???? I was invited to go on your show with my claim but the defendant declined and then she didn’t show up to our local court! It has almost been a year and I haven’t seen a dime!
The Judge’s Answer: You will have to start a collection action against her. You can file a claim to garnish wages or freeze her bank account. If you don’t know where she works or banks, the court allows you to summon her in court so you can question her about her assets under oath. Failure to appear or respond to a court summons is considered an act of contempt.
