what process is taken for collection of a court orderd settlement after a lawsuit
1 Answer from Attorneys
If the settlement is not paid in accordance with the settlement agreement, there should be provisions in the agreement on what procedures will be taken. If there are not any such provisions, the person who the settlement was awarded can file a lien on any assets of the business. At this point that person becomes a judgment creditor subject to the other debts and liabilities of the entity that owes money.
If the entity is a person, then a garnishment can be done on the person's work wages. In both instances, you will need an attorney to file the appropriate documents properly.
Another way to collect is to file a lawsuit for the collection of the settlement. This will also need the assistance of a competent attorney.
