Collection of judgement
I recieved a judgement against someone who took money for a service, then didn't provide the service. The judgement is for the payment made and intrest until paid. I have been unable to collect on this judgement due to the fact that this person has moved and I have been unable to locate him. He never even showed up in court. How do I collect on a judgement that is for a rather large sum of money? And can this judgement be renewed if the time runs out before collecting?

Re: Collection of judgement
Collection is an art, not a science. Obviously locating or "skip tracing" the debtor is an essential and often difficult part of the process. Judgments are renewable, at least once if not indefinitely, if you properly renew them within 10 years of entry. You may wish to have an attorney assist.
