Collecting on a Judgment
Part 2 in the Series
How to Locate and Levy Accounts.

Armed with your debtors Name, Address, and SSN you can now locate any open bank accounts this subject may have.

What that will do is enable you to file a writ with the court (this may be called something different in your state).

A writ will typically allow you or the sheriff (depending on the laws in your state) to serve the Financial Institution with a formal demand to levy the bank account for funds equal to or as much as the amount of your judgment.

The private investigators that sell services on the bestpeoplesearch.com portal can locate these accounts. Understand that you can only levy accounts in your subjects name (not the spouse, the brother, the uncle, etc).

If your judgement is in the Name of an Individual and a Corporation you can locate and levy business accounts as well. However, for that search you will need the business name and FEIN number in place of a SSN.

This is a great tool for judgment recovery and is one of the main avenues used by law firms and judgment collection specialists who pursue judgements to collect funds.

Part 1 – Collecting on a Judgement.

Now that you have been to court and won your judgment you’ve completed half your battle.

If your debtor doesn’t pay you then what? Well, there are several ways to collect on a judgment but before you can even utilize them you need to start with the first step.

  1. Information gathering; be sure to have your debtors full name and address – these things will be useful in gaining the next level of information.
  2. Now you need your subjects Social Security Number. Keep in mind that your debtor may move, change jobs, close bank accounts or open new ones but their Social Security Number always remains the same.
  3. Once you are armed with your debtors SSN you will be able to find and levy bank accounts, locate current employment and garnish wages, as well as report the debt and lack of payment on the debtors credit report.

The length of time varies from state to state as to how long you have to collect on a cash judgment but the average is between 7 – 10 years. You may want to check with the state or court where you were awarded the Judgment.

In some cases (if you’re lucky) collecting on a judgment can be quick. Other times (more usuall) it can be a long process and your debtor is counting on you giving up.
