You must locate the assets of your judgment debtors which may
be their wages, bank accounts, which you can garnish or real property
which can be encumbered by a lien recorded in the land records
of the circuit court in the jurisdiction where the property is located.
There could also be other kinds of property either in the possession of
your judgment debtors or to which they have legal title which could be subject to attachment but the above assets are likely the ones that you should first target in order to enforce your judgment.
