Executing Your Judgment
There are generally two scenarios we see when it comes to getting you the money a court has already awarded to you: 1) you have previously obtained a money judgment in court, but the opposing party still has not paid you, or 2) we handled your case from the beginning, but the opposing party has yet to pay. In either scenario, there are several mechanisms the law allows for to make sure people collect the money a court has awarded.
Levy: This procedure can take the form of levying a judgment debtors personal property or real estate. The procedures for doing either are very different from one another. However, they have one thing in common: a sheriff's sale. A sheriff's sale is where the sheriff's department actually sells the judgment debtor's property to raise money in order to pay the amount of the award.
Garnishment: This is another avenue we can use to help you collect the money owed to you. Often times, this involves a bank. The judgment debtor's bank is put on notice that it must pay you money out of the judgment debtor's bank account. The Pennsylvania Rules also allow for a judgment debtor's interest in a business to be garnished.
